Charcoal is the New Whitener

What if I told you that charcoal (yeah, the black stuff) would be the key to whitening your teeth and improving your overall oral health? Well, I’m tellin’ ya!

While the use of charcoal for dental hygiene may be new to us, charcoal has been used since as far back as 30,000 BC to absorb and clean. By harnessing the natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties of charcoal, you can make your mouth healthier than ever before without using gnarly chemicals.


WARPAINT ($55.00) is a new, 1o0% natural teeth whitening product made from our new friend, charcoal! This magic ingredient, combined with bentonite clay, organic sweet orange peel, organic peppermint and organic lemon myrtle not only whitens your chompers but it’ll strengthen your gums, remove toxins from your mouth, reduce infections and inflammation as well as fight bacteria to boost your immune system. Where the heck has this stuff been all my life?!

This gritty, black powder is applied to the teeth and brushed with a toothbrush for a couple of minutes before rinsing thoroughly. The great thing about it being 100% natural is that you can use it as often as you want without having to worry about any harsh chemicals, you can even use it instead of toothpaste! After using WARPAINT for a couple of days, I did notice my teeth looking a bit whiter and they certainly felt cleaner – zero fuzziness but but ultimate freshness!


Why not maximise the benefit of your new teeth whitener by using a charcoal toothbrush? Pearl Bar have a range of eco-friendly bamboo toothbrushes ($7.95) for kids and adults with charcoal infused bristles which act to clean the teeth while absorbing chemicals found in our water and toothpaste. I love using these toothbrushes; a couple of bristles fall out here and there but knowing they’re not harming the environment and my body is well worth the minor inconvenience.


Pearl Bar even have you covered when it comes to the little bits stuck in between your teeth. Check out their Floss Picks ($9.95); charcoal infused floss on a little pick to get in those hard to reach places. Pearl Bar’s products are 100% biodegradable, fair trade, vegan and FDA approved so there’s a lot of great stuff happening in a couple of little charcoal products.

If you’re looking for a natural and vegan way to keep your pearly whites shining, it may be time to make the switch to charcoal dental products, they’re the new whiteners!
