Ingredients

The active ingredients in Zendium Classic are:[3]

Unlike many types of toothpaste, Zendium products do not contain the foaming agent sodium lauryl sulfate (SDS or NaDS, where D means dodecyl). The lack of SLS protects the mucous membranes[3] and is believed to reduce the risk of aphthous ulcers.[2] In addition, since Zendium does not contain SLS or similar foaming agents, it can be used together with chlorhexidine.[3][4]
