What’s in it
Activated virgin coconut charcoal powder is a pitch black superfine powder. One of its many health benefits is teeth whitening. It also helps to eliminate waste, chemicals and toxins from the body. It has been found that tannins that stain your teeth are drawn towards the charcoal fibres which helps to keep them clean and white. Many alternative dental health products use activated charcoal instead of fluoride, since long-term fluoride ingestion can actually have harmful effects on the body.
Calcium bentonite clay is a naturally deep cleansing mineral which promotes and supports general health and well being. Not only does it bind to and draw out heavy metals and toxins (a huge plus for the mouth!), but it is alkaline and full of minerals, especially calcium which aids in remineralisation. Bentonite is a swelling clay. When it becomes mixed with water it rapidly swells open like a highly porous sponge. From here the toxins are drawn into the sponge through electrical attraction and once there, they are bound.
Organic Turmeric powder, the yellow spice that stains everything actually whitens your teeth! Some research shows how turmeric can boost oral health significantly and supports conditions such as gingivitis and other gum diseases.

Will your teeth become so blindingly white that they look like they glow in the dark?
No. Many of us are used to seeing ultra-white Hollywood smiles. What’s rarely mentioned is that those smiles are often achieved by applying veneers to the front of natural teeth. It’s just not possible to bleach teeth that white. That is not necessary for a gorgeous, healthy looking smile either.
Use in place of conventional toothpaste. Rinse mouth out well after use. Twice a week, leave it on while you have a shower then rinse well.
Swish with diluted 3% hydrogen peroxide for extra whitening. You can find it at your local health food shop.
Be sure to keep an old face washer on hand to wipe out your bathroom sink after brushing your teeth.
