16th Feb 2017

Whitening your teeth with charcoal

Wondering how the year’s flown by so fast? Well, so are we! But in the spirit of starting over, we’ve fallen in love with a new, natural teeth-whitening technique- activated charcoal!

It’s an organic treatment that’s been used for centuries to help teeth stay fresh and bright. Not only that, it has a bunch of other uses. You can use it as a detoxing treatment, as a face mask or to get rid of those pesky spots. It’s simple to use, super effective and before long you’ll be feeling like a whole new person! But, just in case you’re wondering how it works, we’ve answered some FAQs for you:

How do you use it?

Easy! For whitening toothpaste, you just dip your brush (with or without toothpaste) into the powder and brush your teeth like usual. Then rinse well to get rid of the charcoal powder on your teeth, and they’ll be left shining brighter than ever!

How does it brighten teeth? 

The charcoal powder works by absorbing plaque, and other things that might stain your teeth. In doing so, it can often help you deal with morning breath and prevent any diseases looking to infect your mouth.

It’s especially good for sensitive teeth that react badly to normal toothpaste- the natural ingredients don’t make teeth ache, and you’ll be rewarded with brighter teeth!
