A Breath of Fresh Air for Oral Care

Enhance your oral care formulations with XCS-11™, an innovative solution that effectively targets and neutralizes volatile sulfur compounds, eliminating bad breath at its source.

The Science behind XCS-11

XCS-11 is a stabilized chlorine dioxide solution specifically designed to address the root cause of bad breath. As bacteria in the mouth break down food particles, they produce volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs) that cause unpleasant odors. XCS-11 effectively targets and neutralizes these VSCs with just one rinse of mouthwash, providing long-lasting freshness for up to 12 hours. Additionally, XCS-11 disrupts biofilms like tongue coating, leaving a clean mouth feeling. This proprietary technology ensures a safe release of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) in oral care applications, promoting oral health and hygiene.

Science-Backed Benefits

XCS-11 promotes oral health and hygiene by acting as a fast-acting solution for bad breath, targeting and neutralizing the compounds responsible for malodor at their source. Its ability to disrupt biofilms in the mouth, including tongue coating, contributes to a cleaner mouth feeling while also decreasing tartar formation above the gumline. Additionally, XCS-11 provides protection for both teeth and gums, resulting in a refreshing sensation of cleanliness and long-lasting fresh breath.

Key Consumer Insights

With nearly 200 million Americans incorporating mouthwash or dental rinses into their routine, there's a surging demand for oral care solutions that target the root cause of bad breath, rather than merely masking odors.

Formulation Opportunities

Available in two strengths (2% and 5% available ClO2), XCS-11 offers versatility in formulations and is suitable for various oral care products, including mouthwash, toothpaste, and breath sprays.
