About Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is the type of charcoal that you will find in dental and beauty products. Although charcoal might make you think of the bricks you use on your barbecue, you wouldn’t want to use that type of charcoal on your teeth or skin. Activated charcoal is created when charcoal is heated with a gas. This causes the charcoal to expand so that pores are created. These pores are what help to remove toxins and unwanted substances from your teeth and skin.

People have used charcoal for teeth cleaning for many years. The Romans used charcoal to clean their teeth, and a 19th-century recipe for toothpaste contained charcoal powder too. Charcoal dental products have risen in popularity again over the last ten years or so, and they are particularly trendy right now.


How to Use Charcoal Dental and Beauty Products

If you want to use charcoal toothpaste, tooth powder, floss or another charcoal dental product, they can offer you several benefits. There are various options available, many of which also have other beneficial ingredients or leave out ingredients that you might not want, such as fluoride. However, if you know you are prone to tooth decay, you should make sure that you’re also using regular fluoride toothpaste.
