One major trend in all-natural products is the inclusion of charcoal. Charcoal has a lot of benefits: it can filter water, aid in digestion, deep clean your pores, and so much more. A lot of people have even been turning to activated charcoal toothpaste to clean and whiten teeth. The other day, I found a generic brand of activated charcoal toothpaste at TJ Maxx for just a few dollars, so I decided to give it a try.
First, it was so funny that my mouth looked like a horror movie while I was brushing my teeth. This toothpaste is a bold black so it looked like I was eating the creature from the black lagoon. It actually didn’t taste that bad. There was definitely some added mint. Overall, I liked that it genuinely did make my teeth look whiter! However, my mouth didn’t feel fresh enough afterwards and I didn’t feel like my teeth were as clean as when I use a more traditional toothpaste. I’ll keep using this one occasionally, but it’s never going to replace other toothpaste for me.
Have you tried activated charcoal toothpaste? What were your thoughts? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!
