Abstract

ABSTRACT: Caffeinated toothpaste that is to be used like regular toothpaste for brushing one's teeth.Toothpaste contains 67.4 mg of caffeine per milliliter of toothpaste, which is the recommended amount. However, since toothpaste isn't meant to be swallowed, not all of this caffeine which reach the bloodstream.Caffeine can be absorbed through the lining of the mouth and gums so we estimate that after a minute of brushing, about 30-50 mg will have been absorbed. Brushing longer will allow for more absorption.It cleans teeth, but it's also infused with caffeine to wake up in the morning. The toothpaste also boasts another effect, that it works much faster than coffee, which makes sense considers to be applied it straight to gums rather than ingesting it. The downside is that the "woke" effectdoesn't last as long as it does with drinking coffee.Traditional oral care products are boring. For most people, oral care is a chore, something they do because they feel they have to. People don't brush twice a day. Our mission is to turn oral care into something people can get excited about. Brushing teeth should be an indispensable part of your morning routine. Methods: Caffeinated Toothpaste was formulated in forms of gel and opaque and Thyme essence was added to it. The formulation was evaluated in terms of stability in different temperatures, pH, consistency, uniformity, taste, smell, and compatibility with special packaging for toothpaste at three temperatures. Profilometry was used to determine abrasivity. Results:Addition of thyme essence to formulation had no deleterious effect in stability, consistency, taste and smell. The pH of opaque and gel formulations was 7.02 and 7.45, respectively. The abrasiveness of opaque and gel formulations was in standard ranges. Conclusion:Formulation of toothpaste with T. v ulgar i s essential oil was acceptable and might be considered as a desirable herbal toothpaste.
