Sarakan - The Natural Way to keep Gums & Teeth healthy
Sarakan is a range of natural dental care products that contain the active ingredient Salvadora Persica, a natural extract subtracted from the fibrous branches of the Salvadora Persica shrub. Renowned for its powerful antiseptic and beneficial properties, Sarakan uses Salvadora Persica Extract to help clean, freshen and restore your teeth’s natural colour. Vegan friendly and suitable for children, Sarakan will also help to your keep gums healthy too!
The Salvadora Persica plant grows throughout the Middle East, Africa and Asia, where it is known as the 'Toothbrush Tree'. The twigs of the shrub have been used for centuries as a ‘chewing stick’ to help keep teeth and gums clean and healthy. Over thirty years ago, an army doctor serving in India noticed that his patients’ dental health was very good, despite their very bad diet. He discovered that many used these chewing sticks to clean their teeth with, and on his return to the UK, this doctor decided to develop a toothpaste with the Salvadora Persica Extract – and therefore Sarakan was born!
