Oral Care

smile and the world smiles with you

Smile! A smile is how we communicate.  It can be in-person or by web cam, but smiles are an effective and universal way to communicate. Toothpaste, mouth rinse, tooth whiteners and denture adhesives are just a few of the oral care products that keep our smiles healthy and  the world smiling. 

Ashland’s broad ingredient portfolio of bioadhesive polymers, rheology modifiers, delivery systems, mouth moisturizers, encapsulates, and teeth bleaching agents improve the efficacy, integrity and allure of oral care products. Many of our  ingredients are derived from cellulose – a renewable and abundant resource.

We do more than just manufacture innovative ingredients; our solvers help solve oral care challenges. Contact us and see how we can make you smile.
