For the last few years, activated charcoal has become quite famous in the beauty and wellness industry as an alternative to fluoride toothpaste. Some people have chosen to move away from using fluoride due to dangerous  effects of fluoride that have been linked to osteoporosisthyroid problemsendocrine problems and cancers, just to name a few.

Activated charcoal is everywhere, not just toothpaste and can be seen in products such as charcoal cleansers, facial masks, scrubs and shampoos. I have recently started trying various brands and must say that one downside is that the taste takes some getting used to especially if it is not mint flavored.  Some brands can be difficult to spread on to the toothbrush and around the mouth but overall I have gotten the same cleaning effects as toothpaste so I have not missed regular toothpaste at all! Another thing to note, I sometimes have to follow with a second brush and definitely flossing afterwards to ensure a proper clean and get rid of any black residue between my teeth.

What is Activated Charcoal?

Activated Charcoal is a fine black powder which is made from coconut shells, petroleum coke, coal, wood, and other materials. So, Activated Charcoal is in trend when it comes to teeth whitening. It helps in removing toxins from your body and at the same time getting rid of the unwanted substance from your teeth making your teeth whiter. Let’s move further and have a look at the benefits of Charcoal Toothpaste.
