HOW DOES LISTERINE WORK?
LISTERINE Fights Germs with Essential OilsThe power of LISTERINE Antiseptic comes from a formula of four essential oils that kill millions of germs on contact. Our fixed combination of eucalyptol, menthol, methyl salicylate, and thymol continues to deliver unsurpassed results. No other branded mouthwash has this formula. And that's why no other mouthwash feels or works like LISTERINE. LISTERINE Penetrates Plaque Biofilm and Kills GermsBiofilm is a more recent term for the bacterial film on your teeth we call plaque. Biofilm is an organized community of germs in a gooey matrix that enables them to multiply and survive inside your mouth. Brushing and flossing help disrupt and remove this biofilm, but sometimes may miss hard to reach areas—prime real estate for gingivitis causing germs. LISTERINE Antiseptic rapidly penetrates the biofilm to kill plaque and gingivitis germs."
