6 Activated Charcoal Products We Love
Activated charcoal might sound like something more suited to go in your grill instead of your mouth, but let us explain. It has multiple medicinal purposes, and it’s often used to treat various poisonings. In the dental world, some people use it for teeth whitening. The charcoal essentially absorbs toxic substances, taking them on so your body doesn’t.
Charcoal is considered “activated” when it is made into fine particles, increasing the surface area so the charcoal can absorb more substances. In Boka’s toothbrushes, activated charcoal is used to provide soft bristles that naturally kill odor-causing bacteria.
“I don’t often use face masks, but this one is natural and fairly gentle. It made my skin feel tight at first, and then left it smooth. A good option for a face deep cleaning that doesn’t involve harsh chemicals.” – Becky, creative
“My girlfriend swears by this stuff and I’ve tried it a few times as well. It doesn’t taste terrible and it provides chemical-free whitening, which is way less scary than other whiteners.” – Zach, strategist
