Our Teeth Whitening Charcoal Toothpaste is made with all the good stuff. No additives, chemicals or fluoride. We use Activated (Certified 280 mg) charcoal. Activated charcoal itself is a fine, black powder that is odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic. While you might not think that a black powder could actually whiten teeth, you’d be surprised. Your mouth may look really bizarre when you brush with charcoal, but if you do this daily, you’ll notice a difference within a couple of weeks. So get ready for that BRIGHT SMILE :-)
*NOTE* It’s also important to consider your teeth’s sensitivity. Any whitening agent can weaken your tooth enamel over time – this is true with commercial products, such as Whitening Strips/Toothpastes, and it’s true for activated charcoal. If you notice your teeth becoming more sensitive after using activated charcoal, cut down on brushing with it to just once or twice per week, or stop using it altogether. Always do what's right for you :-)
You will taste a hint of Baking Soda. Please DO NOT use your electric or fancy toothbrush as this toothpaste WILL STAIN! Happy Brushing!
Our Peppermint Leaves are Organic. Peppermint is full of anti-bacterial qualities. This kills bacteria in the mouth and keeps your breath fresh and your pearly whites free from dental diseases and decay. Coconut Oil is anti bacterial and helps prevent cavities while Baking Soda helps with whitening, acts an abrasive to help clean your teeth. Now combine all three ingredients and you have healthy, chemical free, light minty tasting toothpaste :-)
ACTIVATED CHARCOAL IS BLACK & CAN STAIN CERTAIN SURFACES (TEMPORARILY). WE SUGGEST THAT YOU DO NOT TO USE YOUR EXPENSIVE ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSH, INSTEAD USE A REGULAR DISPOSABLE ONE.
ALSO, FOR BEST WHITENING RESULTS, USE ONCE OR TWICE A DAY FOR WHITENING EFFECTS. RESULTS ARE USUALLY SHOWN ONE WEEK FROM FIRST BRUSHING OR EARLIER.
Please be aware that this is an "EARTHY" textured toothpaste, because of the texture of the finely chopped peppermint leaves. Finely chopped peppermint leaves allows for less baking soda to be used, which is easier on your enamel. Make sure to RINSE VERY WELL using your toothbrush to remove excess bits of grit that may remain after each initial brushing :-)
We use 76 degree coconut oil, that means at temperature of 76 or over, it may become runny. If that's the case, put into fridge for 10 to 15 min and it will thicken back up. If your toothpaste becomes HARD and may have that funky looking discoloration due to the coconut oil solidifying (65 or lower) just put in a warm place (like a window sill) in direct sunlight for 10 or 15 min intervals until smooth again. Hope this helps :-)
Ingredients: Organic Peppermint Leaves, Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil, Activated Charcoal (Certified 280 mg) and Baking Soda (Baking Soda does not contain aluminum, that would be Baking POWDER)
