maj 13, 2016 Beconfident Benelux is now live

For the past two months we’ve been working hard on launching our first bilingual website – Beconfident.be!

Belgium is a country in the heart of Europe and Brussels is often adressed as the capital of Europe. This is what made the market of 11 million people the obvious next step for Beconfident to enter. Belgium is divided into two parts – Flanders and Wallonia. One part being dutch speaking and the other french speaking. This is of course a challenge when building a website but we believe it looks as good as any of our others.

Next site to be launched will most likely be Holland. They will both be managed through our daughter company Beconfident Benelux S.P.R.L. We can also announce that both of these countries have partnered up with Tradetracker and hope for a very successful relationship!

You can visit our Belgian website here: www.beconfident.be

april 14, 2016 The connection beween oral hygien and general health

dentists instruments

Oral health is essential to general health and well-being at every stage of life. A healthy mouth enhances social interaction and promotes self-esteem and feelings of well-being. It also serves as a window, reflecting the rest of the body, providing signs of general health disorders. For example, pale and bleeding gums can be a marker for blood disorders, bone loss in the lower jaw can be an early indicator of skeletal osteoporosis, and changes in tooth appearance can indicate bulimia or anorexia.

Oral conditions affects on overall health and disease. An infected gum may cause bacteria from the mouth to spread, causing infection in other part of the body when the immune system has been compromised by disease or medical treatments. Systemic conditions and their treatments are also known to impact on oral health ( reduced saliva flow, altered balance of oral microorganisms.) This can for example be seen in patients treated with antidepressants or sleeping pills.

Periodontal disease has been associated with a number om systemic conditions. Through the biological interactions between oral conditions such as periodontal disease and other medical conditions are still not fully understood, it is clear that major chronic diseases – namely cancer and heart disease- share common risk factors with oral disease. Recognition that oral health and general health are interlinked is essential for determining appropriate oral health care programmes and strategies at both individual and community care levels.

mars 31, 2016 The beconfident working mechanism for safe teeth whitening

Working whitening mechanism

120003-120203

The Beconfident whitening effect comes partly from dissolution of stains on the surface of the tooth as well as oxidizing organic compounds causing discolorations deeper in the enamel and dentine.

The formulation consists of a combination of cleaning substances (surfactants, Surface Active Agents) and actively whitening free carbonates released from the gel ingredient 32% Sodium Bicarbonate. Contrary to whitening products containing Hydrogen Peroxide, that can cause irritation and pain, our active ingredients are gentle and free from any negative side effects.

The initial effect comes from the cleaning ingredients during the first two minutes of contact between the gel and the tooth surface. The surfactants lower the surface tension and binds chemically to the stains while lifting them away from the tooth. This process paves the way for the second phase and the temperature in the gel increases due to the body heat. The increased temperature together with the naturally occurring enzyme in the saliva – alkaline phosphatase – splits the Sodium Bicarbonate and forms free carbonates. The free carbonates oxidizes – dissolves – the organic discolorations within the enamel and dentine.

These processes in combination are patented (US 8580232 B2) and the reason behind Beconfidents unique whitening effect.

The same working mechanism can be found in the following products in the Beconfident Whitening System. The products also contain 0,05% Sodium Fluoride in order to remineralize the enamel.

1. Teeth Whitening Start Kit
2. Teeth Whitening Refill
3. Teeth Whitening Touch up cleaning pen

In the Beconfident Dual Boost Whitening Gel the first phase has a stronger cleaning action through Sodium Coco Sulphate. This ingredient can also be found in Beconfident Dual Foam.

februari 29, 2016 Working mechanism for Acne & Skin Care System

Working mechanism Acne Products

The Beconfident Acne System attacks the acne problem in two ways. First of all through the reduction of the common acne bacteria Propionebacterium acne and Staphylococcus aureus. Secondly by building the strength and elasticity of the skin, which helps to prevent but also relieve symptoms of any future active acne. Unlike most methods on the market that contain salicylic acid, Beconfidents products act with ingredients that will not dry out the skin or give other uncomfortable side effects.

Both Acne Prepare and Acne Reduce contain substances extracted from Bovine Colostrum – Natural raw milk. Prepare includes lactoperoxidase which is an enzyme with very strong antibacterial properties. This enzyme effectively reduces the acne bacteria. These bacteria are normally found on the skin but effectively reducing them will minimize the symptoms of acne. Acne Reduce contains large amounts of IgG (immunoglobolin G) which is also extracted from colostrum and will together with conjugated vitamin A improve skin quality. IgG has an anti-bacterial effect and helps to balance the skin’s bacterial flora.

Collagen helps to build the skin’s thickness and elasticity, but when the degradation of collagen is greater than the production the skin will become thinner and more sensitive. Conjugated Vitamin A in Acne Reduce has a very good ability to penetrate the skin cells and also promote the growth of collagen but also reduce its degradation. The improved quality of the skin effectively contributes to the long-term resilience to new acne attacks.

In an active acne phase Acne Prepare + Acne Reduce work in parallel to relieve symptoms in the short term and strengthen the skin’s own resistance in the long term. When the active phase subsides and there are clear signs of improvement, usually after 4-6 weeks, we recommend continued use of only Acne Reduce. At the next active phase combine again the two formulations as directed. It is important to complete the full course of treatment for 4-6 weeks for best long term results

Summary of Clinical Study for Acne – Bonde

20 patients, 7 men and 13 women, with an average age of 22,2 year followed a treatment for 3 weeks; 15 of these continued the treatment for an additional 3 weeks. Papulae, postules and cysts in the face was measured before and after 3 and 6 weeks of treatment. The face was cleansed using a mild neutral wash, after which FInito B with IgG was applied. This was repeated twice per day, morning and evening.

The total amount of Papulae was reduced from 328 to 235 (3 weeks) and to 121 (6 weeks); amount of postules reduced from 48 to 21 (3 weeks) and 11 (6 weeks); cysts from 1 to 0 (3 and 6 weeks). These differences were statistically significant. An interesting finding during the treatment period was that new papulae/postulae that appeared during this time were significantly fewer and milder. They also disappeared quicker. No side-effects were noticed except for a slight redness during the first days of treatment.

Beconfident Skin Care mechanisms – Better than you ever can expect.

sandbildBeconfident Cleanser Antioxidant

Beconfidents Antioxidant Cleanser is a gentle, low foaming gel cleanser that removes dirt and impurities without drying out or straining the skin. It contains organic witch hazel water and Aloe Vera that works soothing and moisturizing. Both are ingredients that have great advantages on sensitive skin and especially Aloe Vera which is very good if you have damaged skin from ultraviolet radiation. Cleanser

Antioxidants also has organic green tea extracts containing EGCG (Polyphenol Epigallocatechin-3 gallate) which reduces swelling, redness and the breakdown of collagen.

Beconfident Revitalizing Boost Serum

Revitalizing Boost Serum contains 1.68% Hylasome® EC 10 which is a non-animal hyaluronic acid that binds water 50 times more than ordinary hyaluronic acid and is 5 times more moisturizing after 24 hours. It also contains Panthenol, which in contact with skin transforms into pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). Pantothenic acid works moisturizing by adding water to the cells in on a deeper level in the skin. Clinical research has also shown that it is not only hydrating, but has an anti-inflammatory function and can relieve itching and help to soothe a dry and irritated skin.

Just as Cleanser Antioxidant, Revitalizing Boost Serum also contains organic green tea extract but also Superox-C that is derived from Kadadu plum is known as a super fruit. Superox-C helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and even out the skin tone thanks to the very high content of vitamin C.

 Beconfident Stay Fresh Day Cream

Beconfident Stay Fresh Day Cream is a moisturizing day cream to be used after our Revitalising Boost Serum. Stay Fresh contains 4% Betaine that moisturizes the skin, making it stronger and more elastic and has anti-inflammatory effect. It also contains organic coconut and sunflower oil that naturally moisturizes the skin. Stay Fresh also contains conjugated vitamin A (Retinyl Palmitate) that improves the quality of the skin by stimulating production of collagen.

Beconfident Hyaluronic Anti-Ageing Cream

Our Hyaluronic Anti-Ageing Cream contains Hylasome® EC 10 which is a non-animal hyaluronic acid that binds water 50 times more than ordinary hyaluronic acid and is 5 times more moisturizing after 24 hours. Hyaluronic Anti-Ageing Cream contains caprylic / capric triglyceride derived from coconut oil and glycerin. These are softening and great repairing active ingredients. It has a mixture of fatty acids, which repairs the surface of the skin and prevents moisture loss as caprylic / capric triglyceride’s main task is to moisturize and “fill out” the skin. Just like all the other Beconfident skin care products it also contains organic green tea extract.

Part of skincare range with best quality ingredients ever.

juli 3, 2015 The Beconfident range of mouth guards has helped many who suffers from teeth grinding or TMJ.

TMJ stands for the temporomandibular joint, which describes the two joints near the front of your ears where the upper and lower jaws connect. Damage occurs to the TMJ when the disc in the joint, the cushioning cartilage, slips out of position.
This will often cause pain, jaw locking or a clicking/grating noise when you open and close your mouth. It may even change the way your teeth bite together.

TMJ damage may be the result of clenching your jaw excessively or grinding your teeth (usually at night), or may be a consequence of breathing disturbances, night time disordered breathing or sleep apnoea. TMJ damage can also be caused by injuries to the head and neck region or arthritis. There is help, learn more about our mouth guards on our local websites.

BeconfiDent and MASQ presented our product range to over 200 invited guests at the popular event.  Among the attendees were some of the largest pharmacy chains in Norway. This is one of the necessary steps to grow our Retail division in Norway.

MASQ also understands the importance of EU product approvals and they know how to support the customers in the absolute best way,” says Johan Ling-Vannerus, New Market Director at BeconfiDent.

BeconfiDent proudly presents it’s first TV/Stream commercial made specifically for the digital broadcast of the Lets Dance show, a move that underscores how we are aiming to reach our customers who don’t watch traditional TV.

The Lets Dance is a critical night for marketers because it can attract a massive TV audience at a time when TV viewership is generally fragmenting. Marketers are increasingly interested in targeting viewers who stream programming on digital platforms rather than watching on a TV set.

december 20, 2014 A plaque-free mouth is a healthy mouth

Our advise is boring but yet very effective; – Basically, brush and floss, and do it correctly.
The goal of regular home care is to combat the buildup of plaque in and around your teeth and gums, and fight bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease. Adults who neglect their teeth and who let plaque build up often develop infections in the delicate tissue around their teeth. This can lead to many health problems.  .

Consequences of Poor Oral Hygiene

Poor oral hygiene invites plaque to accumulate around the base of your teeth and gum line, causing your gums to become red and inflamed. Plaque is the bacteria-laden film that, if allowed to accumulate on teeth and gums, will cause tooth decay and gum disease.

If you neglect the care of your teeth at home and fail to go to the dentist regularly, accumulated plaque could potentially lead to the development of empty spaces around your teeth. These spaces could eventually lead to the destruction of bone and other fragile tissues supporting your teeth, and you could lose your teeth. A Swedish study also link poor oral hygiene to cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

The good news is that being diligent about your dental health care and getting regular dental checkups can prevent plaque from forming and even reverse early gum disease.

maj 20, 2014 Dental regulators work to shut down peroxide teeth whitening businesses

With her children grown, Trisha Eck thought it would be fun to go from being a stay-at-home mom to a small entrepreneur – so she rented a room at a medical spa, where she started her own business, Tooth Fairies Teeth Whitening.

She purchased equipment and supplies from a vendor she met at a trade show, including non-prescription strength teeth whitening gels. Customers could purchase her products as a take home kit or apply them to their own teeth while visiting the spa. Since she’s not a dentist, Eck says she never performed the treatments on customers but was there to offer instructions.

“Everybody wants a white, happy smile,” Eck said. “I loved what I did. It made people happy. It was a fun job to have, and it was a nice way to help my family.”

But state regulators weren’t smiling. This spring, Eck received a cease and desist order from the Georgia Board of Dentistry, after one of its investigators determined her business was an unlicensed dental practice.

“He comes from the dental board, and he’s telling me he can shut me down. He can fine me; I could face prison time,” Eck said. “That’s a little intimidating.”

Eck closed her business to avoid any legal consequences but insists she did nothing wrong. She says she merely provided customers instructions and a clean place to apply over-the-counter whitening treatments to their own teeth.

“You don’t see them going after people who do tongue piercings,” Eck said. “To me, that’s much more invasive than teeth whitening.”

Eck’s predicament attracted the attention of the Institute for Justice. The libertarian law firm has filed a federal suit against the Georgia Board of Dentistry, arguing that the dentists who serve on it are trying to protect their profession from low-cost teeth whitening alternatives.

“They’re using government power to outlaw their competition [and] keep prices high,” said Larry Salzman, the Institute’s lead attorney on the case. “That’s just not only bad policy, it’s unconstitutional.”

The Georgia Board of Dentistry declined to comment on the issue because of the pending litigation.

And Georgia is not alone. The Institute for Justice has filed similar legal challenges to dental boards in Alabama and Connecticut. And the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case brought by the Federal Trade Commission against the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners over cease and desist orders the state agency issued to non-dentist teeth whiteners.

According to the Institute for Justice, dental regulators in at least 25 states have ordered teeth whitening businesses to shut down, and at least 14 states have changed laws or regulations in recent years to exclude non-dental professionals from offering teeth whitening services.

Although teeth whitening services provided by non-dentists are generally less expensive than those in a medical setting, many dental professionals advise caution.

“Patients who are considering having their teeth whitened by non-dentists should first visit their dentists to make sure their teeth and gums are healthy,” the American Dental Association (ADA) said in a written statement to Fox News. “White teeth are not necessarily healthy teeth.”
