RatanhiaFor Teeth & Gums
Native to the foothills of the Andes in Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador, indigenous people have used ratanhia as a medicinal plant to improve the strength of gums and teeth for ages. Just like the ones in red wine, these naturally occurring tannins found in the bark of ratanhia are believed to hold the power to fight inflammation.
Clean Teeth and Strong Gums are a Reason To Smile
The calming benefits of the Ratanhia root tannins are used in our certified natural by NATRUE Ratanhia Toothpaste. The characteristic reddish color remains intact through to the finished products because of our careful, time-honored process.
Traditionally, these potent tannins were believed to make gums feel strengthened and fortified. Many believe that good health begins in the mouth with vibrant gums and teeth. A beautiful smile and fresh breath are the happy benefits of our plant-rich oral care routine.
For over 40 years, Weleda has sourced ratanhia from specific locations in Peru through fair trade partnerships whenever possible. Once again, we demonstrate our commitment to sustainable and socially responsible wild collection of resources and dedication to our core philosophy to protect habitats.
