This Many Benefits of Charcoal Products post is in partnership with Crest. All opinions are 100% my own.
Charcoal has so many uses and benefits. Activated charcoal has a negative electric charge and attracts the positively charged toxins in our bodies. Activated charcoal is the natural way to draw impurities from our bodies. There are so many different charcoal options available, I wanted to touch on a few benefits of charcoal products my family use currently.
Activated charcoal has made its way into a number of my daughters self-care routines. They adore giving themselves mini facials with charcoal face masks and charcoal skin peels. I actually have activated charcoal bars of soaps in all my showers for my teenagers and tween because of teen acne issues.
The Many Uses of Charcoal Products
Whiten Teeth + Oral Health
It may seem really odd to think that a dark substance such as charcoal would have an amazing whitening effect on your teeth; but using toothpaste with charcoal is actually very beneficial for teeth whitening and overall oral health.
Have you ever sprinkled charcoal on top of toothpaste on a toothbrush to brush your teeth? It’s a bit alarming when you first brush with charcoal sprinkled on top of your toothbrush because your entire mouth is black. In fact, it’s super messy and the fine powder tends to get all over everything in your bathroom and all over your mouth and hands.
The charcoal doesn’t taste like anything at all, but it an odd way to brush your teeth. I don’t prefer to use charcoal sprinkled on top of my toothbrush because of the mess and I actually prefer my mouth to feel like I have brushed my teeth. I also happen to really like the fresh feeling I have from using great cleaning toothpaste.
Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal
Crest has introduced a brand new formula to its already amazing line of toothpastes that is focused on purifying the surface of teeth for a whiter, cleaner smile! Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal is a NEW Crest Charcoal Toothpaste with activated charcoal ingredients. No more DIYing your own homemade charcoal toothpaste for whiter teeth — Crest has everyone covered now.
Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal is toothpaste with the activated charcoal in the toothpaste itself. There is not any mixing of toothpastes and there won’t be any sprinkling of fine charcoal powder on a toothbrush because Crest has created this amazing Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal right in a toothpaste tube AND Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal is less abrasive than sprinkling charcoal powder on your toothbrush. It’s pretty genius!
Brushing your teeth with Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal is not even a longer process. It might be a bit messier maybe and certainly more colorful! This unique toothpaste is formulated and striped with Charcoal. The Crest charcoal ingredient creates a striped toothpaste that is sparkly grey in color and has a fresh, minty flavor that lasts for hours after brushing. Once brushing begins, the foam becomes grey and lightens as you continue to brush the full two minutes.
If you haven’t ever brushed with charcoal toothpaste, you may be a bit shocked the first time at the color of your teeth. But believe me, once you rinse your mouth, your teeth do not remain the color of your toothpaste — just like if you were to use blue or red toothpaste. The toothpaste residue goes right down the drain every time. AND, you are left with whiter and brighter teeth after using the Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal. The fresh mint flavor leaves your breath feeling fresh long after brushing.
My daughters and I have been using Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy with Charcoal for the past couple of weeks and really, we were used to the slight change in toothpaste texture immediately. We are already avid brushers of Crest brand toothpastes, so the taste was basically the same for us. In our opinion, there really will not be anything new to get used to. Crest 3D White Charcoal toothpaste provides a #BetterWayToCharcoal! ☺
Reduce Acne and Improve Skin Health
Another great use for activated charcoal my daughters use charcoal products is mini facials. As I indicated earlier, charcoal can help remove toxins from your body. So, if you have a teenager who might be suffering from a bit of acne, try a few charcoal products.
All of my teens have a bar of charcoal soap, and don’t fret, it actually smells really good. My daughters adore having mini charcoal facials for a fun night of activity. The facial is black, but it leaves the skin smooth as silk. Seriously, my daughter’s cheeks feel as soft as when they were babies after a charcoal facial. It does not stain clothing or countertops either.
Relieves Bee Stings
I have kept activated charcoal tablets around my house for as long as I can remember. My daughters and myself are all allergic to bee stings. I learned this little trick many many years ago. Long before I ever carried an epinephrine pen around with me for emergencies.
If you are ever stung by a bee and it begins to burn, simply make a small amount of paste using an activiated charcoal tablet, cornstarch and some water. This little paste works well to draw the poison out. This paste also works great if your kids or yourself run through poison ivy on accident. Another great use for this paste is for mosquito bites or spider bites. These area great little tablets to keep on hand during the summer months.
