About ProFresh® – the Original Molecular Chlorine Dioxide Mouth Wash
What is the ProFresh® Care System?
The ProFresh® Breath Care System was developed by Dr. Jon L. Richter, directly from his successful clinical treatment programme. ProFresh® is the only patented oral rinse that contains ACTIVATED (Molecular) Chlorine Dioxide which removes odour causing bacteria. The U.S. Patent awarded to Dr. Richter for ProFresh® excludes any other mouthwash from containing a significant amount of chlorine dioxide. Once odour is controlled with ProFresh® you follow a simple two minute maintenance routine, twice a day, to maintain fresh breath 24 hours a day. The ProFresh® Daily Routine also reduces the amount of “free floating” bacteria in the mouth and consequently the amount of dental plaque, a cause of dental decay and periodontal disease.
- Destroys 99% of volatile sulphur gases and compounds
- Removes oral debris like food particles and dead skin cells in the mouth and in ridges on the tongue
- Neutralises bacteria in oral debris before they can produce volatile sulphur compounds
- Balanced for the osmotic pressure of enzymes and acidity, in saliva.
- Removes oral biofilm that coats the tongue.
- Activates saliva ducts in the morning, reducing dry mouth.
- Nightly rinsing eliminates morning breath providing a fresh start every day.
- Breaks down odour causing bacteria from the outside-in, destroying the cell-wall, ensuring complete removal
Proven Safe and 99% Effective
The ProFresh® Breath Care System includes ProFresh® Oral Rinse, Activator Pack, a Tongue Scraper and a Quick Start Guide.

What is Chlorine Dioxide and how does it get rid of bad breath?
Firstly you need to know the difference between stabilised and activated (molecular) chlorine dioxide.
Stabilised Chlorine Dioxide
Stabilised chlorine dioxide mouthwashes contain a chemical called sodium chlorite which is a salt used in the manufacture of chlorine dioxide. Because it is a precursor of chlorine dioxide, sodium chlorite is also called €œStabilised chlorine dioxide€ despite the fact that is contains NO chloride dioxide at all. These products are marketed with claims that they contain chlorine dioxide although they do not. Recent studies confirm that the effect of stabilised chlorine dioxide mouthwash on bad breath is insignificant compared to ProFresh® Chlorine Dioxide Mouth Wash.
Activated (Molecular) Chlorine Dioxide
Molecular Chlorine dioxide (Cl02) is a chemical which has long been used to safely disinfect and deodorise water supplies worldwide.
Research studies have proven that bad breath is caused by bacteria that live on the back of the tongue called anaerobic bacteria. These bacteria feed on protein leftovers in your mouth producing the volatile sulphur compounds that are responsible for bad breath. These compounds are easily destroyed by chlorine dioxide. Molecular Chlorine dioxide attacks the volatile sulphur gases in your mouth, neutralising them and the smell they produce. Molecular Chlorine dioxide mouthwash is extremely effective in eliminating bad breath. ProFresh®’s U.S. patent prohibits any other mouth rinse from including chlorine dioxide at levels known to stop bad breath. Therefore, it is the only genuine molecular chlorine dioxide mouthwash.
