Honey & The Natural Peroxide Effect With The Right pH + Sodium
Posted by Gabriala Brown, Tooth Soap® founder on Jul 20th 2022
“It would take a pharmaceutical company many years and billions of dollars to develop an antimicrobial product that could even come close to being as effective in treating wounds as honey, “says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International which is a manufacturer of skin care products that contains Manuka Honey as a natural healing agent. “Even then, it is doubtful that they could create a product that is equally as effective in treating infection as honey.”
We've been formulating with honey for over a decade, knowing well all the benefits of this natural substance for gum health.
Honey and it's ability to encourage healing is due to the necessary components it contains to produce small amounts of hydrogen peroxide in a slow-release manner.
Honey does need the proper pH of 5.5-8.0 and there also needs to be a certain amount of sodium present for this to happen.
The high sodium and pH levels of skin activate glucose oxidase in honey and it begins to break down the glucose, releasing hydrogen peroxide.
This is a perfectly natural process has no side effects and will not affect medications one is taking.
Other benefits of raw honey include many amino acids, vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
Our Chlor-Alternative No 18 and Chai No 18 Tooth Soap® Liquid contain Manuka Honey from New Zealand which is the finest and most active form.
