What are the ingredients of Secure Denture Bonding Cream?
Miglyol is based on Glycerine. Glycerine is produced from plant oil. In Europe this oil is usually produced from canola (=colza, lat.: Brassica napus), and the product we use is also based on canola grown in Europe.
This ingredient is derived from Cellulose. Cellulose is produced from trees or cotton wool. The supplier of the ingredient of Secure Adhesive is using Scandinavian Fir and Spruce, exclusively for our ingredient as we insist on very high quality.
This is the non soluble ingredient responsible for this main difference of secure to other competitors. PVA is completely inert, non allergic, does not affect the taste and cannot be absorbed. Polyvinyl acetate is a very common ingredient in chewing gums and registered as substance for chewing gum base in Europe as well as in the USA, where it is approved as a food ingredient by the FDA.
Are all ingredients of Secure Denture Bonding Cream of natural origin?
Miglyol and Sodium Carboxmethylcellulose are produced from plant derived basic raw materials. PVA is intentionally not plant derived: gum bases made out of plants may cause allergies and are not always neutral and it is difficult to standardize these products. The PVA in Secure, on the other hand is completely inert, non allergic, does not affect the taste and cannot be absorbed. Therefore it is commonly used as a gum base and especially preferred for medical chewing gums. Synthetic resins like PVA are preferred instead of a natural compound for our medical devices; for the safety of our customers.
