We don’t normally associate jet-black teeth with a dazzling white smile. That could soon be changing. Instead of spending time and money having annoying discolourations treated chemically at the dentist's, more and more people are using natural activated charcoal powder. In the beginning it might take a little getting used to when you see yourself in the mirror with your teeth all covered in charcoal, but a healthy oral flora and gently whitened teeth will soon convince you.
Beauty trend with all the makings of a classic
Its positive properties have recently begun making activated charcoal a product in the cosmetics sector that has what it takes to become a true classic. No matter what area of your body you use it on, it cleans up your act. As an activated charcoal mask or peeling, it purifies the skin and opens up clogged pores. In shampoos and hair masks, the charcoal reduces excess sebum on the scalp and helps hair structure to become lighter and more voluminous.
Charcoal’s wide range of beneficial effects have already been proven in other areas and have been used in medicine for centuries. The rough surface of the charcoal binds harmful substances or dirt and absorbs them like a sponge. With gastrointestinal infections, charcoal tablets help to absorb harmful bacteria and later expel them from the body. Coal can also help to neutralize toxic elements in the body if chemicals or poisonous substances are inadvertently ingested.
Activated charcoal for your teeth: Bye-bye bacteria
The fact that this black powder is now also being used to clean teeth may initially come as a surprise. But charcoal binds bacteria, impurities or tartar and leaves your mouth feeling fresh and above all clean after rinsing. After using it for just a short while, teeth become visibly whiter, oral flora is healthier, and plaque is reduced.
Easy to use – extra gentle microgranules
It’s easy to integrate using charcoal into your daily beauty routine. Simply apply the finely ground powder to a soft, moistened toothbrush and brush your teeth with smooth, circular movements. Activated charcoal can also be used as a mouthwash. Simply stir one or two teaspoons into a glass of water and swish around your mouth. Don’t forget to rinse well!
