In France, you can’t use at home

According to the european cosmectics directive, France established a maximum authorised concentration of . Higher than  level of 0.1 per cent (maximum authorised) You will not be allowed to use teeth whitening products unless if you work in medical services as a professional. You will have  to go to the dentist, at least for the first  appointement. Then, if dentist agrees, you will be allowed to finish  teeth whitening at home (dentist-supervised home whitening’)

So if you want to use whitening products yourself anyway , the concentration has to be low and a longer time is needed to achieve a satisfactory result.

Hydrogen peroxide : The main danger ingredient

The main danger ingredient in tooth whitening products is hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide is the simplest peroxide (a compound with an oxygen-oxygen single bond) Peroxide compounds have the ability to whiten teeth through an oxidation process. the higher the concentration, the faster the results but bad effects could be :
