The Aquafresh Whitening range comprises of two toothpastes:

  • White & Shine – claims to clean and polish your teeth. To give your teeth a smooth finish, it contains micro-buffing particles and this toothpaste also stops new stains forming on your teeth.
  • Ultimate White – research has revealed that micro-fine whitening crystals can make your teeth whiter, so Aquafresh have put them in this toothpaste.

Aquafresh Extreme Clean aims to clean awkward areas using its micro-active foam. It contains micro-polishers and carries a warning that it should not be used in children under the age of 2. There are 4 varieties of this range:

  • Aquafresh Advanced 2X Enamel Strengthening Action – This toothpaste claims to keep minerals inside the tooth while keeping plaque acids out to keep your teeth strong.
  • Aquafresh Advanced 2X Whitening – this toothpaste contains a combination of cleaning agents to give the teeth a more thorough clean whilst strengthening the enamel.

Aquafresh Iso-active (Product of the Year 2011) is a whitening toothpaste that is actually a gel that becomes “active” foam in the mouth. It claims to protect your teeth against cavities as the fluoride acts deep in and around each individual tooth. It is available in three varieties:

  • Fresh Impact
  • Deep impact
  • Lasting impact

Aquafresh have also developed a range of toothpaste of young children. They manufacture one, which they call Training Toothpaste and it’s recommended for use of children aged 3-24 months.
