To do that, we propose the use of an acetone fraction of ED (AFED) in primary human gingival fibroblast cell (hGFC) culture associated or not with CHX solutions at 0.12% and 0.2% concentrations to evaluate their antioxidant properties and the possibility of improvement of mouthwashes currently available on the market.
