Need whiter teeth without having to go to the dentist or buy an expensive kit at the store (that contains harmful ingredients)?? I sure did! My teeth suffer because of my 2+ cups of morning coffee I NEVER miss. Whitening my teeth professionally isn’t in the budget so when Carbon Coco sent me their whitening toothpaste and activated charcoal, I immediately gave it a try. I’m very happy to say that my teeth are at least 3-4 shades whiter (as are my husbands :)) and we are only 4 days in. Oh and results were immediate. Our teeth were visibly whiter after one day.
Carbon Coco uses 100% certified organic coconut shell charcoal that is actually medical grade! The charcoal not only brightens your teeth, it also improves your overall mouth health. By using the charcoal daily, it will removes toxins, stains, and plaque from your teeth through a process called adsorption, in which activated charcoal binds with these particles and flushes them out of your teeth and mouth. Carbon Coco’s charcoal also contains bentonite clay, which helps remineralise teeth plus lemon myrtle, which has gentle and non-acidic antibacterial properties.
Oral Benefits of Activated Charcoal:
- Whiten Teeth
- Prevent Bad Breath
- Remove Plaque
- Prevent Harmful Bacteria
According to Carbon Coco:
It’s an oxidized version of charcoal and can be used to effectively whiten teeth. It removes external stains from your teeth without the toxic chemical ingredients used in commercial tooth whitening. This tooth whitening promotes good oral health and can change the pH in the mouth, helping to reduce things that cause cavities, gum disease and bad breath.
How to Use:
Brush with a wet brush in small gentle circles (no need to brush hard!) for 2 minutes. Rinse thoroughly then brush your teeth with toothpaste.
I also have been using Carbon Coco’s new Activated Carbon Toothpaste which helps fight cavities, plaque, gingivitis and bad breath. This tooth paste reduces bacteria build-up by up to 90 percent for 12 hours and penetrates deep between teeth to fight bacteria plaque! It is pitch black yet not messy at all. It is super minty and refreshing and leaves a great taste in my mouth.
The above before and after pic was after one time of use. I typically shoot product reviews right when I get them in the mail so the pictures are of brand new, full bottles. I immeditaly dug into Carbon Coco (because this gurl had some yellow teeth) and tried it out! It’s been almost a week since these pictures were shot and my teeth have continued to whiten!!
The Carbon Coco tub will last forever. I like this product because it not only contains medical grade activated charcoal, it also contains bentonite clay to remineralize the teeth. Not to mention-it’s on sale right now!
A Few Tips:
- The first time I used the powder, I was of the mind set that more is better. 2 minutes is the suggested time to brush with the charcoal powder so since I really needed white teeth yesterday, I did 5 minutes. My teeth looked good but as the day went on, bits of charcoal were dislodging from my gums and from in-between my teeth. Once I reduced my brush time to 2 minutes, this didn’t reoccur.
- Definitely brush with the powder at night. This will allow any charcoal that has been left behind to be completely gone once you brush the next morning.
- The powder is safe to do daily and I suggest you do!
To be super honest, I have a teeth whitening kit sitting in my bathroom drawer that I got before my wedding. Since we had pictures done, I wanted super white teeth. Luckily, I didn’t get the time pre wedding to use the kit and then Carbon Coco showed up and delivered safe, non toxic results just as fast! And my teeth are healthier too!
I highly recommend Carbon Coco! Buy your kit HERE! Oh and it’s on sale!!!! Oh and all orders (even international) are FREE SHIPPING!!
Charcoal is very popular the days and works very well
I am very intrigued by this!!! Since the powder only. contains activated charcoal and bentonite clay, what proportions would you suggest if I wanted to DIY this instead of purchasing it?
Btw, you have beautiful teeth and gums and an amazing smile😀. I greatly appreciate the time and dedication that you put into your blog. I keep your blog permanently open on one of the tabs on my iPhone. Thank you for all that you do!!!
If I were to DIY the charcoal powder, which type of bentonite clay is better for remineralising teeth/ oral health? Sodium or calcium bentonite clay? Thank you so much!
Has anyone else had shipping issues when ordering? I placed an order on May 2, 2018 and it is May 16 today and I haven’t received any shipping information. I’ve contacted the company for status.
Martha-Oh no! I hate to hear this. They are an Australian company but I’m not sure if they have a US facility. Keep me posted. I didn’t have this problem.
I do appreciate your sharing products you love and enjoy! I did order this, and it has worked so-so for me, but I may need to give it more time. It was difficult to find out what all the ingredients are in this toothpaste. I even looked this product up on Amazon, and the ingredients weren’t listed there. So I e-mailed the company and they gave me a list. But I found out one of the ingredients is a polysorbate, from looking it up online. The company then said they have to put some sort of a preservative into the product to be able to sell it. So, question is, do you think it is something to be concerned about or not?
Elizabeth-Polysorbate ranks a 3 out of 10 on the EWG website. I don’t think it’s cause for much concern and understand that they have to preserve the toothpaste or people could really be ingesting a lot of bacteria. I wouldn’t worry about it. It’s a more natural preservative and probably the preservative of choice in most natural toothpastes.
Wow! I’ve been oil pulling which seems to work well but this seems quicker. I’ll have to try. Thanks!
Elease-This would be great in addition to oil pulling!
Carbon Coco is really a good deal! Going to the dentist and paying a hefty price for teeth whitening may not be an option for everyone. Trying this at home whitening method can be worth it as long as we’re familiar with its whitening system. It’s really quite beneficial as we wouldn’t have to break the bank to get those pearly whites.
