Kinder mouth care supporting children with cancer
Cancer treatments are tough on children’s tender mouths. So our commitment to creating milder oral care that gives protection through kindness is especially helpful at this time. Zendium’s gentle formulation helps support even the most vulnerable mouths, caring for delicate soft tissue and strengthening the mouth’s natural defence systems when children need it most.
Caring for young mouths during cancer treatment
Chemotherapy and radiotherapy can alter the balance of the mouth’s microbiome, causing problems such as mouth sores, infections, tooth decay and dry mouth. At a time when a child’s mouth is at its most vulnerable, it’s especially important to give them the kindest care possible.
For useful advice on helping keep children’s mouths healthy and comfortable, download our care leaflet.
Supporting children with cancer UK
We’re proud to be partnering Children with Cancer UK, helping educate children and their families about the importance of kind and effective oral health, during cancer treatment and beyond. Throughout Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we’ll be donating money from online sales, as well as offering educational materials and product samples. You can order our free Kind Mouth Care Kit at childrenwithcancer.org.uk
"I am delighted to announce a new partnership with Zendium, part of Unilever. Zendium toothpaste is much milder and therefore ideal for children. To support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September, Zendium are kindly donating £2 for each pack of toothpaste sold during the month. I’d like to thank them for their generosity which will support us in achieving our vision of a world where every child survives cancer”
