THE SCIENCE OF BETTER SOLUTIONS.

FOR PEOPLE AND PLANET.

A VISION FOR

BETTER LIVING

IR Scientific (IR) was born of a passion for improving lives while reducing the impact on your body and the planet. We specialize in the design and development of disruptive and ready-to-commercialize consumer, industrial, and professional solutions. Our unique inorganic polymer platforms allow us to control a number of important natural variables while delivering valuable elemental payloads with precision—where and when they’re needed.

 

Our first product, Sensi-IP, is set to reimagine oral care. Our impact on sensitivity relief will provide decades of over-the-counter-dental care products and applications.

Expanded oral care opportunities

 

IR’s bespoke oral care platform has immediate application in sensitivity relief.

That opportunity is huge and nearly untapped. Direct consumer and industry feedback confirm the oral care market is ripe for disruption, with a proliferation of aging technologies that have little patent protection for key ingredients.
