Any of you super paranoid about your teeth? I am crazy about oral health, I am always worried about enamel erosion, my tooth sensitivity, stuff I am doing to damage my teeth and any discoloring. I used to use whitening stripes but it was insanely painful, so I wanted to try a more natural approach to teeth whitening. I had heard amazing things about activated charcoal powders, but I had also heard that they are abrasive and damage your enamel. I decided to try Carbon Coco. It is a 100% natural, activated charcoal tooth polishing powder to whiten teeth.
The Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish from Carbon Coco contains “100% Organic coconut shell activated charcoal with a hint of bentonite powder and lemon myrtle”. They also claim to be safe and non damaging while actually strengthening enamel and fighting plaque. They recommend you use this product once daily for 7-14 days and then reduce use to upkeep results. Each tub comes with about 2 months worth of product. Because I am so paranoid, I decided to only use the product 1-3 times a week.
I got the original, and there is absolutely no flavour and no smell. I think if I were to purchase it again I would get the Sweet Mint because I actually find it very odd to not have any flavour; I realize how strange that is. There is kind of a strange texture to it as you brush since it is such a fine powder, it feels kind of dry but not overly bothersome. It makes a HELL of a mess! Lots of black in my sink and definitely required a clean up.
I used this product for almost 3 months on and off and honestly, I noticed zero difference in the colour of my teeth. So that’s that.
