Cooling cucumber extract has cleansing and antibacterial properties. It has a delicate but distinctive flavour, which makes it an excellent addition to oral care products.
Cucumber is part of the gourd family (Cucurbitaceae) and, like melon, has very high water content. As well as being a rich source of vitamins B and C, cucumber also contains phytonutrients, which are believed to have protective properties.
Cucumber is a natural anti-inflammatory, which can help to soothe a sore mouth and gums.
