Abstract

Toothpaste is an agent used as an effective home care system. It is a  paste or gel dentifrice used with a toothbrush as an accessory to clean and maintain the aesthetics and health of teeth by the patients to enhance oral hygiene. What many people don’t know is that most brand-name toothpaste contains a number of ingredients that are not healthy.  Herbal toothpaste  does not contain the artificial colors, flavours or fluoride that many of the artificial products do contain.  For the present study the extracts of apple peel, lemon peel, orange peel, banana peel, clove oil were used to formulate a polyherbal toothpaste and studied by phytochemical tests and  spectral analysis using UV/VIS, IR  spectroscopy. These studies have revealed the presence of vital constituents which shall be responsible for  anti-microbial activity and useful in tooth decay problems.
