Colgate Patenting Caffeine-Releasing Toothbrush
The oral care brand is aiming to develop special chemical patches to enhance the user experience.
Dentists recommend brushing at least twice a day, but would you consider brushing more often if you got a boost of caffeine or a taste of apple?
In a recently published patent application, Colgate-Palmolive is looking to gain intellectual property rights over a ‘toothbrush that releases a chemical into the mouth during use.’ According to the patent, the new toothbrush would have a special patch on the back of the head with a toothpaste that releases flavoring and chemicals.
