So, I’ve been seeing this new trend where people use Activated Charcoal to whiten their teeth. Activated charcoal is one of those rare areas where ancient traditional medicine and today’s medical literature agree.
I am a caffeine addict and as you all know, coffee stains teeth.
So I had to try it for myself!
I bought myself the activated coconut charcoal from Brilliant White SA on their online store. The package included, 1 x 30g Brilliant White Activated Coconut Charcoal Pot and 1 x Bamboo Toothbrush with Black Bristles.
The website was so easy to use and I received my order in just 2 days.
Brilliant White’s Activated Coconut Charcoal is a peroxide free black powder that can be used daily.
It strengthens enamel, removes external stains and detoxifies your mouth by reducing the bacteria that causes cavities and bad breath, balancing the PH in your mouth and ultimately promoting oral health – leaving you with polished pearly whites!
Finally, my packaged arrived, I was so stoked to use it soon as I got home. But, having two little boys and having to do the housework, this was not an option. And knowing Mason, my 3-year-old, he would also would want to try it and make one hell-of-a-mess!
Finally the boys was in bed and it was time to test this Activated Charcoal Powder. I read through the information and instructions and started the process:
- First took the Bamboo Toothbrush and wet the bristles with water.
Secondly I opened up the Charcoal Pot.
- Thirdly I dunked the toothbrush into the Charcoal Pot.
- Then I started brushing (it was a bit powdery in the beginning, but my saliva took over, spreading the powder everywhere)
- I brushed gently in a circular motion for about 4 minutes.
- Rinsed, I had to rinse 3 times before the water came out clear.
My tongue went completely grey, so I had to brush my tongue with toothpaste and my normal toothbrush afterwards.
Whilst I was brushing, my whole mouth went black and then my lips. I started freaking out, thinking……What if this now stains my lips/gums/teeth – I have to go to work tomorrow!
I must say, it did make quite a mess, but luckily it was very easy to clean off my face and the basin.
I definitely give this product a thumbs up!
The results for me was amazing, after just the one brush, my teeth went one shade lighter. – Where as their website states you will only start seeing real results after 3 days.
I would highly recommend this to any person looking to have polished pearly whites!
