All for Fluoride free, natural oral Dental health care
Sometime in 2001, Dr. Gemma M. Chavez scoured the stores in Manila looking for a fluoride free toothpaste brand for her little children. Being a dentist herself, she knew of studies showing that excessive ingestion of fluoride by children during their teeth forming years can cause dental fluorosis, an irregular mineralization of the tooth enamel marked by white spots. She was also well-aware that most toothpastes contained ingredients that are not meant to be swallowed; they are not safe for consumption.
Dr Chavez had to ask her sister to buy for her from overseas. From then, she also realized the need for families in the Philippines to have such a toothpaste option locally. Soon Dr Chavez and her husband embarked on an extensive research and development of a toothpaste for babies. They learned of xylitol – a natural ingredient in oral health breakthrough.
As a result, Health Amendments, Inc. (HAI) was registered as a duly organized corporation in 2003. A year later, SansFluo Toothgel Cleanser was launched. Inspired by the heart-warming response of mothers to SansFluo, the company introduced other oral care products in the market, using xylitol and other natural ingredients as well. HAI remains dedicated to developing and delivering safe and effective oral care products. All HAI oral care products are duly registered with and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the Philippines.
