The Benefits of Xylitol

Xylitol is an all-natural sugar alcohol that is derived from
plants, fruits and vegetables.
It also occurs naturally in
our bodies in small amounts. This healthy sweetener is
commonly used as a sugar substitute in many foods,
and to maintain oral and upper respiratory health. Xylitol
is used to sweeten chewing gums, sugar-free candy and
toothpastes. Many dentists, medical doctors, health
organizations and health professionals worldwide recommend
xylitol as a healthy sweetener.

How Does It Work?

  • Discourage bacteria from sticking on teeth and helps maintain good oral health.
  • Increase saliva flow to help clean and maintain strong tooth enamel.
  • Discourage irritants from sticking to nasal tissues and helps to maintain good upper respiratory health.

The Benefits of Xylitol in Tooth Wipes

It has long been recommended by pediatricians and dentists that parents should wipe down baby’s mouth and gums with something just slightly abrasive, such as a washcloth, to clear them of harmful food debris.

Often, parents are recommended to gently clean baby’s mouth a few times a day with a gauze pad or a washcloth. Using an oral wipe saturated with dentist-recommended xylitol and other natural ingredients adds a strong line of defense in protecting children’s mouths in a variety of ways.

Xylitol does not promote cavities. It is a non-fermentable sugar that cannot be converted to acid inside the mouth. With less acid in the mouth, there is a much lower tendency for cavities.
Wipes with xylitol help to discourage plaque formation and promote increased saliva production that aids in good oral health.
Wipes with xylitol clean surfaces to discourage the transfer of harmful bacteria from mother to child during breastfeeding.

Xylitol is often used in infant and toddler toothpastes that are recommended for children under the age of 2 years. Children often love the sweet taste of xylitol.

The Benefits of Xylitol
in Nasal & Face Wipes

Since xylitol discourages, pollutants and irritants from sticking to the nasal tissue, it is a perfect complement to a nasal wipe. Wipes with xylitol help to clean and wash airway surface fluids, helping to keep the nasal opening moist for much longer than defense-blocking saline solutions. The wipes help dissolve and clean away mucous, while providing extra soothing relief for a sore, dry nose. Using these wipes helps to maintain a healthy Ear and Nose environment.

Added Benefit:

Our oral cavity, sinuses and ears all share a common environment. Wipes with xylitol clean and remove harmful bacteria from teeth to maintain a healthy ear, nose and throat (ENT) environment.

The Benefits of Xylitol in Pacifier & Bottle Wipes

The addition of xylitol in pacifier bottle wipes helps to maintain good oral health in a very simple way. Not only does a xylitol pacifier and bottle wipe clean surfaces naturally, they also reduce saliva transfer and discourage harmful bacteria from sticking on surfaces. Combining xylitol with a cleaning agent and other all-natural ingredients provides parents with a superior and easy-to-use solution for wiping binkies, bottles, toys and teethers.

Note: Xylitol is approved by the FDA as safe for human consumption and acceptable as a food additive.
Because it is a food, and not a drug, there are no label claims for medical benefits on xylitol-based products.
