New discovery! Pepsodent Antiseptic Mouth Wash
3 to 11* times more powerful in killing germs than other
leading mouth antiseptics!! Checks bad breath longer!!!
AGAIN science discovers something
new. This time a recent and sen-
sational advance is made in the field
of deadly bacteria. A revolutionary
mouth wash has been developed that
is 3 to 11* times more powerful in
killing germs than many other leading
mouth antiseptics.
This is the unqualified and official
opinion of great bacteriological labora-
tories, and of individual scientists who
have made extensive tests with its
new discovery.
From Pepsodent laboratories
This remarkable discovery is a new
and powerful weapon in fighting
germs. It combats, immediately, the
social evil of bad breath.
The formula comes from the Pep-
sodent tooth paste laboratories,whose
contribution to dental hygiene has
won high recognition. Under the label
of Pepsodent Antiseptic Mouth Wash
it is being widely distributed in the
public interest.
Cleanses-purifies the mouth
The active agent used in Pepsodent
MouthWash,as determined by stand-
ard tests, is many times more potent
than pure carbolic acid, for all time
the standard germicide. Pepsodent
Mouth Wash is non-poisonous, safe
and soothing.
Immediately after you use it, 95%
of the germs in the mouth are de-
stroyed. Their number is still reduced
70% at the end of two hours' time-
that is far longer acting than many
other leading mouth washes.
"We find," states one laboratory,
"Pepsodent Mouth Wash kills the
stubborn pus - producing germs (M.
Aureus) in the fastest time it is pos-
sible for science to record-we believe
faster than has previously been the
standard for other mouth washes."
Checks bad breath
With this revolutionary discovery
comes a social safeguard: remarkable
protection against offensive breath. A
laboratory director states: "Tests
prove conclusively that Pep-
sodent Mouth Wash over-
comes bad breath 1 to 2 hours
longer than many other lead
ing antiseptic mouth washes."
At your druggist's - today
Your druggist has just re-
ceived this new discovery. Go
today and get a bottle. Secure
this added protection to your
family's health plus the
greater assurance of a pure,
sweet breath.
Consult Your
Dentist, Physician
In the opinion of some au-
thorities, most breath odors
come from such minor causes
as neglected, unclean mouth;
tooth decay; slight infections
of nose and throat; excessive
smoking. If after using
Pepsodent Mouth Wash bad
breath persists in returning,
seek medical and dental ad-
vice to remove the cause.
*Pepsodent Mouth Wash is
highly antiseptic diluted
with several parts of water.
Hence it goes many times
as far as many mouth
washes which must be used
