Late last week the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) was forced to recall products from three brands of at-home whitening products due to their dangerous levels of peroxide. Reports from consumers of chemical burns on their gums prompted the recall by the ACCC which has seen a total of 9 products taken off the shelves.
As per the ACCC’s guidelines, products should not contain more than 6 per cent hydrogen peroxide or more than 18 per cent carbamide peroxide.
White Glo, Australia’s leading manufacturer of at-home teeth whitening products, has not been affected by this recall, with all products falling well within the ACCC standards. White Glo products have been developed with dentist and leading exports to develop products that are safe and effective.
“Before any White Glo product is released to the public, each product undergoes extensive research and development, safety testing; working with in-house specialist, external agencies and regulatory professionals to produce products that are first and foremost safe for the public. All White Glo products fall within the legal and safe limits”. A White Glo spokesperson said.
White Glo products which do include peroxide are:
- White Glo Express Whitening System – 6% Carbamide Peroxide
- White Glo Extreme Pen & Strips – 6% Carbamide Peroxide
- White Glo Dual Treatment Whitening System - 3% Carbamide Peroxide
- White Glo Tooth Enamel Whitening System – 3% Carbamide Peroxide.
The range of White Glo Extra Strength Whitening Toothpaste does not contain any peroxide.
White Glo prides themselves on oral health and ensures all products are to regulation standards. White Glo is a reputable Australian manufacturer of quality teeth whitening products, leading the industry for over 15 years and having products sold in all major retailers in Australia and over 30 countries.
