MediDent International, a Singapore-based medical and dental equipment supplier, has launched the first locally manufactured povidone-iodine mouthwash that can kill both oral bacteria and viruses. Povidone-Iodine, the active ingredient in Orasyl Orange is particularly effective against COVID-19, and has also been proven to keep other viruses and oral bacteria at bay after each use while promoting good oral hygiene health.
Founded by award-winning dentist and entrepreneur, Dr Samintharaj Kumar, MediDent International is a leading supplier of medical and dental equipment in Singapore, with an aim to provide consumers with easy and effective healthcare solutions.
As the success of oral povidone-iodine against COVID-19 started surfacing in mid-2020, this birthed the idea within the MediDent team to create a practical and functional mouthwash that would protect their loved ones and patients from the effects of the global pandemic in the long run.
Kill off viruses and bacteria in 30 seconds with Orasyl Orange and Green
Conceptualised, designed and manufactured in Singapore during the COVID-19 lockdown, Orasyl is available as either Orasyl Orange or Orasyl Green, providing added protection to users from a whole host of viruses and bacteria.
Orasyl Orange (S$23/500ml) is a specially formulated anti-viral and anti-bacterial mouthwash that contains the active ingredient of 1% povidone-iodine to treat the build-up of dental plaque, gingivitis, fungi, protozoa parasites, yeasts, gram-positive and negative bacteria, SARS, MERS, COVID-19, measles, mumps, herpes, HIV, influenza, rota-viruses, HFMD and Ebola. The active iodine agent works to destabilise the membrane of a virus or bacteria by inducing pore formation, causing cell leakage and killing them within seconds.
On the other hand, Orasyl Green (S$5.50/100ml), is an antiseptic, germicidal mouthwash that includes Chlorhexidine Digluconate, providing users with a broad virucidal spectrum of protection against bacteria, germs, inactive viruses and for overall better oral health. The Chlorhexidine Digluconate binds to negatively charged bacterial cell walls to affect the osmotic equilibrium of the cell to inactivate any germ, virus and gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Additionally, chlorhexidine mouthwashes such as Orasyl Green mouthwash have been shown to reduce salivary bacterial load by 97% for 60 minutes at a time.
Both types of mouthwash offer the added benefit of stabilising the mouth pH and reducing dry mouth syndrome due to the addition of red algae. They are also mint-flavoured; and are soothing, refreshing and alcohol-free. Despite their strong green and orange hues, both mouthwashes do not leave a stain on teeth and tongue. Users simply have to gargle and rinse with 5-10ml of the solution for 30-60 seconds, up to three times a day.
“My intention is to provide the mass market with a solution that is free of alcohol and artificial preservatives suited for daily usage. Orasyl was formulated to be used by people from all walks of life, providing them with a medical and dental grade solution that will arm them beyond this pandemic. Besides promoting the importance of dental care in tackling the effects of viruses and bacteria, our mouthwashes have been created to fit in seamlessly with everyone’s daily routine, and is perfect for future safe travelling plans,” said Dr Samintharaj Kumar, managing director and founder of MediDent International.
