Activated charcoal is very different from your typical household charcoal (aka the stuff you use to BBQ!). It has a much larger surface area than normal charcoal, which is why it effectively absorbs toxins, such as deeply rooted oral stains from coffee and wine. Basically, it’s a form of carbon that has been treated to make the surface of its particles porous. It’s like a magnet…It absorbs all toxic substances away.

Believe it or not, activated charcoal has been around for centuries. In Roman times, it was used to help combat intestinal problems, and (believe it or not) bad breath! It was also used for purification by Hindus as part of their beauty routine. And to this day, it’s used in hospitals to treat patients suffering from poison, and even drug overdose. It’s not just another fad or social media trend that’s going to go away in a few years. It’s legit, it works, and it’s here to stay. The only question is, what else can we use it for!
Yes! All it does is uses the purifying powers of natural activated charcoal to remove and polish stains found on the surface of your teeth.
