Who are we?
Thanks for asking :)!
We are a UK based, 100% natural health products company that has a desire to promote a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
Cocowhite products originated on the back of a well known practice called Oil Pulling, (see more below) to provide a 100% natural alternative to the chemical fuelled teeth whitening craze.
What does Cocowhite do?
The health benefits of coconut oil are endless and we could go really scientific on you, however we believe that pictures speak louder than words:
So, what is oil pulling?
Oil pulling involves swishing oil around the mouth and has been used for thousands of years as an Indian folk remedy.
Normally you'd have to spoon the oil into your mouth then swish it around for 5-10 minutes. However, with Cocowhite we have created the perfect dosage and packaged it up all nice for you in the sachets you see on our homepage.
The main benefit of oil pulling is to reduce the amount of harmful bacteria in the mouth. There are actually thousands of different types of bacteria in the mouth. Some of them are friendly, others are not. The bacteria in the mouth create a “biofilm” on the teeth – a thin layer that they use to adhere to the surface. This is what we know as “plaque.”
Having some plaque on your teeth is normal, but if it gets out of hand it can cause all sorts of problems, including bad breath, yellow teeth, gum inflammation, gingivitis and cavities.
The way oil pulling works is simple. When you swish the oil around your mouth, the bacteria “get stuck” in it and dissolve in the liquid oil.
Basically, you remove a large amount of the bacteria and plaque in your mouth each time you do this. Don't forget, all ingredients are 100% natural and preservative free :)!
