What is the unique combination of ingredients in the Colgate Total formula?
All Colgate Total toothpastes contain a unique formula that fights today's most common oral health problems, including cavities, plaque, tartar buildup, gum problems, and bad breath. The Colgate Total formula is so revolutionary it's even patented. Its active ingredient is Triclosan, which is used to help reduce plaque and gum problems. The Gantrez copolymer enables Triclosan to continue working in the mouth for 12 hours. Without the copolymer, Triclosan would be rapidly lost from teeth and gums, reducing its clinical effect. Colgate Total toothpastes are the ONLY ones with this unique Triclosan/Gantrez copolymer system.
