NOVON - New Technology For Enhanced Whitening

Superior Stability

NOVON® is a new, patented whitening compound that comprises hydrogen peroxide, urea and sodium tripolyphosphate (Figure 1) and is the active ingredient in a new generation of tooth whitening gels.

In addition to the enhanced whitening effect, a further advantage of whitening gels that contain NOVON® is their superior stability characteristics. NOVON®-containing gels equivalent to 5%, 10%, 16% and 22% carbamide peroxide (CP) and 6% hydrogen peroxide (HP) have displayed minimal loss of hydrogen peroxide content over a 24 month test period at a storage temperature of 2 – 24oC.
