Today, we're providing an in-depth analysis into the ingredients of our all new PAP Teeth Whitening Strips.

Phthalimidoperoxycaproic Acid (PAP)

PAP is the key whitening ingredient in our Teeth Whitening Strips. It's a scientifically proven teeth whitening ingredient that is a safe alternative to peroxide. It has no negative side effects during the oxidation of tooth stains which allows it to effectively whiten without pain or sensitivity.

Sodium Hydroxide

Sodium Hydroxide is a commonly used ingredient in teeth whitening, since it safely and gently removes stains from within the enamel layer.

Hydrated Silica

A common ingredient found in many cosmetics products. Hydrated Silica is a mild abrasive which, during the whitening process, gently scrubs the stains from the surface of your teeth.


Polyvinilporrolydone, or PVP for short, is a protective ingredient that keeps stains away from the tooth surface. This means not only do our Teeth Whitening Strips remove stains, they also prevent them from building-up again.


Menthol possesses hundreds of incredible health benefits, but we'll keep this strictly related to teeth! Firstly, it gives our Teeth Whitening Strips their nice minty flavour, but as well as this, Menthol has strong antibacterial properties which have been found to prevent teeth from decay and gum disease.

Dicalcium Phosphate,

Works very similarly to Hydrated Silica, it’s an abrasive which gives the Teeth Whitening Strips their cleaning power and stain removal abilities.


Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it holds onto water and prevents the teeth whitening gel, which is on the strips, from drying out.


Gives the teeth whitening gel on the strips its physical and chemical stability.


The strips contain a small amount of a type of alcohol which acts as a sweetener and also helps maintain the water content of the teeth whitening gel.

Disodium EDTA

Another common ingredient found in many cosmetics products. Disodium EDTA acts as a chelating agent which helps preserve and stabilise the teeth whitening gel found on the strips.
