We all want nice shiny white teeth and as a consumer the options for buying whitening products for your teeth are abundant. Is there another option that is healthier for our bodies? Does natural charcoal, associated with traditional toothpastes that we have been using for decades, provide the cleaning power we need? 

There is a surge in the market for natural alternatives for just about every product found in the bathroom. This short article takes a closer look into the efficacy of natural alternatives and how effective natural toothpaste is at whitening your teeth.

Let’s just recap on the “normal” and see what the Mayo clinic had to say about the whitening products we see in every supermarket, what they do and include in their ingredients. 

Whitening toothpaste can appear to whiten teeth slightly by removing surface stains, such as those caused by drinking coffee or smoking. However, whitening toothpastes can't change the natural color of your teeth or lighten a stain that goes deeper than a tooth's surface.

To remove surface stains, whitening toothpaste typically includes:

Special abrasives that gently polish the teeth

Peroxide or other chemicals that help break down or dissolve stains

Some whitening toothpastes contain the chemical blue covarine, which adheres to the surface of the teeth and creates an optical illusion that can make teeth appear less yellow.” Source here credit Thomas J. Salinas, D.D.S

In our world of natural and sustainable alternatives one thing aside from the plastic tubes and lack of zero waste consideration stands out. Chemicals!

We can turn to nature which has always been there and find a suitable and healthier substitute which doesn’t cost the earth.

Natural charcoal toothpaste. 

NOICE began with a focus on offering suitable all natural products in particular our natural charcoal toothpaste which has efficacy proven abilities to fight plaque, prevent cavities and whiten your teeth. We have been tested too! 

Truth about toothpaste whitening. Besides the chemicals..

Did you know that Extra Whitening toothpaste usually contains minerals that grind the teeth and damage the enamel over time?

Did you know that the other types of whitening toothpaste are not whitening your teeth but tint your gum to be darker red so your teeth look whiter than they really are?

Crazy we know!

Info about RDA (abrasiveness) in toothpaste. The NOICE particle of charcoal toothpaste has a Low RDA but is still efficient (smooth whitening no stripe). Looking after the enamel just fine. Using a high RDA toothpaste could lead to cavities after exposure to enamel damage caused by the formula you are currently using.

Dentist recommendations are that toothpaste should be below 100, our NOICE natural charcoal toothpaste is rated at 90.

Whitening toothpaste can be as high as 250, search deep online regarding your current toothpaste and you might be surprised to see it higher than the recommended rating.

So why do we use Charcoal and other natural Ingredients?

Charcoal provides a natural whitening effect providing it is used as recommended by dentists, brushing for two minutes at least twice a day or after each meal. Just like other whitening toothpastes it doesn’t happen overnight but should become the new habitual routine. Each ingredient that we use has been naturally sourced and carefully selected with dentists.  Combining the antibacterial properties of essential oils with the strong stain removing power of charcoal, NOICE Natural Charcoal Toothpaste protects your teeth fully, brightens your smile and keeps your breath fresh all day long.
