Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the change in bad breath when resveratrol, catechin, and baicalin were used as the main ingredients. Methods: After using the experimental dentifrice, bad breath odor was measured using a sensory test. A visual analog scale was also used, and the following results were obtained. Results: No significant differences were found between the 4 groups after 1 and 2 weeks (p>0.05); after 4 weeks, the level of bad breath was significantly lower in

The sensory evaluation of halitosis was also significantly lower for the experimental and positive control groups compared to that for the negative control group after 4 weeks (p<0.05). Conclusion: The results of this study confirmed that foamed formulations containing resveratrol, catechin, and baicalin have halitosis reduction effects similar to those of conventional mouthwash solutions.
