Blue Covarine Toothpaste:
Does it Really Whiten Teeth?

Learn About Teeth Whitening and Blue Covarine

There’s always a demand for new ways to whiten teeth. There’s no end in sight, from at-home tips like brushing with charcoal to new professional whitening techniques like ultraviolet light-activated gels. One ingredient that has been getting attention for the past few years is called blue covarine. 

Blue covarine is an ingredient in some toothpaste that is supposed to gently whiten teeth through consistent usage.

Does Blue Covarine Toothpaste Really Whiten Teeth?

The evidence is mixed. A 2015 article in the Journal of Applied Oral Science found that toothpaste containing blue covariance was no more effective than standard whitening toothpaste. In that same study, at-home teeth whitening products containing carbamide peroxide, a similar ingredient to hydrogen peroxide, and professional in-office teeth whitening treatments were far more effective at whitening teeth than either toothpaste.

Another study investigating the effectiveness of blue covarine toothpaste found that it was no more effective than a regular toothpaste. Most of its effectiveness came from the abrasive effect of brushing itself rather than the toothpaste’s ingredients.

A 2019 study from the Journal of Applied Oral Science found that blue covarine toothpaste was less effective than either standard whitening toothpaste containing hydrogen peroxide or toothpaste containing microbead abrasives. Interestingly, toothpaste containing microbeads was the most effective at whitening teeth.

In conclusion, blue covarine toothpaste does not seem to compare to other whitening methods, even other mild teeth whitening products. There’s no reason to use blue covarine over other whitening toothpaste with better ingredients.
