I am not going to lie. I was very skeptical before trying Carbon Coco’s natural teeth whitening kit. The concept that natural products can whiten one’s teeth without having to go to the dentist was foreign to me. After I tried it, I instantly saw results! I was shocked. In the past, I have tried whitening toothpastes although I never thought it was doing anything and if it did it wasn’t noticeable right away. Although, Carbon Coco is the only teeth whitening product I have used that I saw a noticeable difference.

First you start with the natural teeth whitening power which is made of activated charcoal. This is an oxidized version of charcoal. When I did more research, I found that many cultures around the world have been using charcoal has a tool to whiten/clean teeth. I also found that many people are against using activated charcoal. They say the long term effects are unknown but there are tests that prove it works and the natural ingredients have no negative effects. Many who are against using activated charcoal are those that benefit from the traditional ways of teeth whitening. Which means they are losing a portion of their income because more people are trying activated charcoal. I would advise trying it out for yourself and coming to your own conclusion. I personally use it once in a while but not daily.

When I tried it for the first time I was expecting an odd taste but there wasn’t any. I would even say there isn’t really a taste but you definitely know that something is in your mouth. After brushing for 3 to 5 minutes you rinse the power out. Then you use the tongue scraper to get the remaining power from your tongue because once it mixes with your saliva it sticks easily to your tongue. Then you brush your teeth with the activated charcoal toothpaste which has a sweet minty taste. After thoroughly brushing for 3 – 5 minutes you rinse again. Ta-da! You are done.
