For all too long toothpaste has meant white, minty flavoured pastes, packed full of chemicals with long and confusing names.
But times they are finally a-changing, thanks to a little thing called charcoal.
No, we do not mean the stuff you bung on your barbeque every summer. The activated charcoal making waves in oral care is a natural and effective alternative to traditional big brand toothpastes, and it is pretty different to the kind of charcoal you are used to seeing under the grill.
Made by heating natural materials such as coconut shells, wood or bamboo to an extremely high temperature before combining with gases, activated charcoal has a range of uses in skincare and can have a great cleansing effect on the teeth and mouth too.
This is harnessed in Ecodenta black charcoal teeth whitening toothpaste with Teavigo™, a gentle, natural toothpaste with an antibacterial and whitening effect.
Why choose black charcoal for teeth?
Containing 96% total ingredients of natural origin.
And of course that is not all. Activated charcoal may help to absorb some tooth stains, helping to whiten teeth more naturally than traditional chemical loaded whitening products, which can be harsh on your delicate mouth.
Great news if your teeth are suffering from the effects of coffee, red wine or cola drinks.
It also has a gentle antibacterial effect, freshening your mouth and helping to minimise the plaque that can lead to cavities and gum disease.
Charcoal toothpaste may also help to freshen the breath too, so you can talk at close quarters with confidence and laugh out loud without fear.
What is Teavigo?
Activated charcoal clearly was not innovative enough for the scientists behind Ecodenta, so they have added Teavigo to their whitening toothpaste, helping to give it just that bit of extra anti-plaque power.
A green tea extract, Teavigo is a clever substance that contributes to green tea’s reputation as a wellbeing superfood. This innovative antibacterial ingredient helps Ecodenta black charcoal whitening toothpaste to protect against tartar.
Teavigo can also contribute to a long lasting clean and fresh feeling.

Black charcoal, or activated charcoal as it is sometimes known, is a fine black powder which is made by heating carbon-rich materials such as wood, peat and coconut shells to a high temperature. This creates charcoal and the process itself is called activation.
This black charcoal is more porous than regular charcoal.
Activated charcoal is slightly adhesive and binds to things such as stains, tartar and bacteria.
It draws out and absorbs toxins and chemicals into its pores. This is anecdotally said to keep your teeth clean and whiten them. However, more studies need to be done to investigate its whitening effects.
Within the beauty industry, there has been more of a focus on white, healthy teeth. There are a number of whitening treatments available from at-home treatments to dentistry.
Black charcoal is also used as an anti-poison remedy or to treat drug overdoses as in can bind to a variety of drugs and toxins. In recent years, it has been used as an ingredient in some skincare products and added to water as a detoxifying drink.
