Dr. Joseph Lawrence and Pharmacist Jordan Lambert are the two scientists who together created LISTERINE® in 1879. Their formula combined three essential oils for oral health. Those same three essential oils are still addressing hard-to-reach plaque and germs that can cause bad breath, over 100 years later in our current recipe for LISTERINE® Antiseptic mouthwash. It penetrates deep to help reduce plaque and keep your mouth clean. No other branded mouthwash offers this unique, essential-oil based formula. The fixed combination of eucalyptol, menthol, and thymol, continues to deliver results to help keep your mouth healthy.
Eucalyptus oil is an antibacterial agent derived from trees usually found growing in Australia.
