About us

  • IceMedico Limited is an Icelandic company founded in 2008 by Dr. Thorbjörg Jensdottir who has +15 years of experience in the functional confectionary sector. 

  • The company’s vision is to improve the world’s oral health. 

  • IceMedico holds the patent for a unique oral technology called HAp⁺ that promotes oral health with effective saliva stimulation. 

  • Dr. Jensdottir is the lead scientist behind the research and product development of the HAp⁺ technology

  • She devoted her studies to the erosive potential of acidic foodstuffs.

  • This led to her development of the acidic but non-erosive oral care product HAp⁺

  • Based on 15 years of research.

  • HAp⁺  is now a product that improves quality of life.

  • HAp⁺ is recommended by the Icelandic Dental Association, clinically tested and patented worldwide.

How it works

The HAp⁺ technology is the result of 15 years of clinical research and product development in Denmark and Iceland within the field of Dentistry.

Teeth erode when exposed to acidic attacks. Saliva, which is stimulated by acid, helps teeth stay strong and healthy. This paradox is solved through HAp⁺’s unique acid:calcium ratio, which makes it acidic but non-erosive. This creates an effective saliva stimulant which, because of the high amount of calcium, doesn’t erode teeth.

HAp⁺ is based around a unique acid:calcium (Ca) ratio; such that the hydroxyapatite (Ca₁₀(PO₄)₆(OH)₂) mineral, known as HAp, is supersaturated and thus prevents dental erosion. 

As such, HAp⁺ functions as a very competent and effective oral cleanser, which is 3 times more effective than chewing gum.

HAp⁺ is recommended by the Icelandic Dental Association, clinically tested and patented worldwide.
