What's The Deal With Activated Charcoal?

You might have noticed that a fair few of our products include activated charcoal or binchotan charcoal bristles. We’re clearly big fans of the ingredient, which can help to keep your teeth white! Here’s how it works, and how we recommend using it…
What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is very different from the charcoal we use on barbecues, so make sure you’re using the right thing! Activated charcoal has been oxidised and is a black powder. There are several places to get it, and our Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening Powder is made from coconut shells! 
How does it work?
Activated charcoal powder is very fine and each grain is abrasive, so it can remove the stains from your teeth as well as soaking up toxins. It’s totally safe to eat and use in your mouth, and can be a useful tool in keeping your teeth white and shiny!
How do we use it in our products?
Our natural bamboo toothbrush and recyclable electric toothbrush heads both have activated charcoal bristles which help to keep your teeth clean and healthy. We also offer a tooth whitening powder for a more active approach. Our powder is 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free and each pot has about 300 uses worth.
Our Activated Charcoal Powder has over 100 5-Star reviews on our website from our lovely customers so if you’re looking for a natural way to keep your teeth white, look no further!
