Rembrandt 3-in-1 combination delivers the best of brush-in bleaching
Rembrandt wants you to have it all! New Rembrandt 3-in-1 combines a fluoride toothpaste, bleaching gel, and whitening rinse to not only whiten teeth, but provide superior overall oral care. Rembrandt 3-in-1, with its uniquely powerful combination of a whitening rinse and bleaching gel, provides significant tooth-bleaching results with just regular brushings. It is also ideal for everyday use, fighting cavities, plaque, gum disease, and bad breath.

Rembrandt 3-in-1 contains a low abrasion, whitening-toothpaste formula complete with fluoride. Rembrandt's patented Citroxain® ingredient, derived from a papaya enzyme, works to not only remove stain but whiten the actual color of teeth.

Rembrandt 3-in-1's gel contains soluble, Bioavailable™ peroxide, allowing for maximum whitening results with very low abrasion. Its unique asset is its whitening mouthrinse ingredient. Also containing peroxide, the rinse works to whiten teeth by fighting the plaque and bacteria build-up that causes gingivitis and other gum disease.

Orbit helps keep teeth clean
Gum chewing triples the normal flow of mineral-rich saliva, even in hard-to-reach areas. This helps to: flush out food particles from between teeth; remineralize and strengthen teeth because it's saturated with calcium and phosphate and contains fluoride; neutralize harmful plaque acids and create a healthy environment for teeth; and provide welcome relief of dry mouth.

Brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits are important for good oral health.

ScaleBlaster eliminates formation of limescale deposits
ScaleBlaster is a revolutionary product that eliminates formation of limescale deposits in water pipes, faucets, cooling towers, boilers, dental equipment, and more without the need of water softening equipment, salts, chemicals, or maintenance.

The integrated circuitry system produces a unique and complex modulating frequency waveform that hits the resonant frequency of the calcium carbonate molecules causing them to lose their adhesive properties. Existing scale is removed and never forms again. The product is noninvasive and adds nothing to the water. Several models are available and sizing is based on water hardness and pipe size.
