Who would guess Activated Charcoal could whiten your teeth? But, guess what… it does!
Just like Activated Charcoal’s other anti-toxin benefits, it can be used to gently detoxify your teeth, leaving whiter and brighter. That’s why at the O Naturals Family, we are proud to introduce our new O Naturals Activated Charcoal & Clay Teeth Whitening Powder Collection. Now it should be noted that we didn’t just use any charcoal to make this, so let’s take a minute to describe what Activated Charcoal actually is.
Activated Charcoal is not the same charcoal that you put onto your BBQ grill. Rather, it is a refined charcoal that is processed into a finely milled black powder. In many cases, Activated Charcoal is created by adding a chemical to the charcoal which changes its chemical structure. However, at O Naturals we chose a natural method of activating our charcoal.
Instead of using chemicals, our Activated Charcoal is processed with high heat. This heat is what “activates” it. This changes its internal structure, making it more porous than regular charcoal. It also removes any additional substances that are harmful from the newly-formed Activated Charcoal.
Now, here is what it does on a natural chemistry level to fight toxins and free-radicals:
- Activated Charcoal has a negative electrical charge, which attracts positively charged molecules such as toxins and gases.
- This attraction causes them to be absorbed by the Activated Charcoal.
- The porous texture of Activated Charcoal adds to its efficiency at this task.
Most importantly, unlike other Activated Charcoal teeth powders, O Naturals Teeth Powder is not overly abrasive. This means that using it over time will not erode the enamel on your teeth. Dentists recommend anything below 200 on the RDA (Relative dentin Abrasive) value on the abrasive scale. With a score of 65, O Naturals Activated Charcoal Teeth Powder is one of the lowest on the market. This makes it ideal for even the most sensitive of teeth. Of course one should ask, exactly how does Activated Charcoal whiten your teeth?
Activated Charcoal whitens teeth by absorbing the extrinsic stains using its abrasive prowess. Extrinsic stains are stains that are found on the outer enamel of your teeth. These come from the usual group of suspects such as coffee or red wine. It can also pull other types of bacteria, plaque, and tartar from the enamel as well. Overall this makes for an effective, natural whitening treatment for your teeth.
At O Naturals we added Bentonite Clay to the mix to increase the oral anti-toxin cleaning power. Just as Bentonite Clay binds to toxins on the teeth, it binds to toxins in other areas of the mouth as well. It cleans important areas vital to oral health such as the gums. It is also mineral rich so will add strength and luster to your teeth and improve gum health.
