Abrasives

Abrasive dentrifice solutions to meet your varying abrasivity needs.
The abrasive component provides the polishing action of toothpaste. Abrasives include such materials as phosphates, hydrated silica, alumina, baking soda, and precipitated chalk. The most common phosphate used as an abrasive is dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD). Anhydrous dicalcium phosphate (DCPA) is also sometimes used in combination with other abrasives, but is considerably more abrasive than DCPD.
