Ratanhia (Krameria Triandra) Root Extract

Commonly referred to as Ratanhia and literally meaning “the plant creeping on the floor,” this shrub is native to the Andes Mountains in Bolivia and Peru. The plant is about knee high, with branches sweeping out across the ground. Strong roots, hairy silver leaves and red flowers that bloom during the rainy season make up this plant. The roots of the Ratanhia have historically been used by the natives of Bolivia and Peru to care for their teeth and strengthen their gums. High in tannins, the roots contain astringent and toning properties, easing inflammation, redness and infection. The root extract also tightens fine veins and tissues.

Glycerin

This three-fold alcohol found in every fat is produced through the saponification of vegetable oil. It is used to regulate the absorption and release of the water in the skin, creating a moisture balance and helping to soften and smooth the skin. This emulsifying agent helps give a formula a smooth consistency for easy application. * Weleda uses Glycerin derived from non-GMO rapeseed oil grown in Germany.

Xanthan Gum

This fermented byproduct of the microorganism, Xanthomonas Campestris, yields a fibrous gel similar to cellulose. It is very stable under a wide range of temperatures and pH levels. This gum agent serves as a stabilizer and emulsifier, as well as a foam enhancer and thickener.

    I wanted to share my experience with the Ratanhia Mouthwash concentrate but it didn't appear among the products. I was in for a massive shock when I tried this Weleda product, bought locally with a June 2017 expiry date. I took care to use as directed but when I looked in the mirror the product had actually stained my teeth so bad that they were blackened in between each tooth. I have never had such awful stains on my teeth before and resigned myself to it. That was a while ago. However yesterday I had to have a tooth extracted and afterwards I was asked by my dentist if I smoked. I answered a resounding no, then he walked off and I felt like a liar. Then I remembered that your product had stained my teeth and added to my humiliation. I would like some satisfaction hence I am writing this so buyers beware!

    At my age [64] gum issues are more possible. However each time I go to the dentist for 6mo. teeth cleaning, he and the hygenist are amazed how healthy my gums are. I owe it all to Weleda salt/myrhh toothpaste! My teeth, gums & mouth feel so tingly and alive after brushing.Thank you for your devotion to such pure, healthy and evironmentally sustainable products. We all are blessed by your work!
