Commonly Used Ingredients
LISTERINE® also contains other vital ingredients in addition to our four essential oils.
Let’s Talk About Alcohol
Alcohol carefully disperses our essential oils to cut through biofilm. It also lets you Feel the Whoa! - our famously intense, signature sensation.
But we totally get that alcohol may not be everyone’s cup of tea. So, we also created alcohol-free products that are made using essential oils dispersed in a different way, these products offer an alternative mouthwash experience – while also providing a whole mouth clean.
