Stevia Leaf Extract

Stevia leaf extract is a natural sweetener, derived from the plant Stevia rebaudiana. Stevia leaf extract is commonly used in dental products, toothpastes and mouthwash as it is non-toxic and beneficial for dental cavities. Research has shown that Stevia leaf extract provides a sweetness that does not ferment in the presence of bacteria, and therefore does not cause tooth decay or tooth cavities. In the mouth wash products formulated by Divine Cosmetics, Stevia leaf extract is used as a natural sweetening agent to mask the bitter taste of grapefruit seed extract and the metallic taste of zinc, making the products more palatable to pets.
