3 Benefits of Activated Charcoal Dental Floss
Activated charcoal is heating up the beauty industry, and for good reason. From facial masks to toothpaste, this detox powerhouse has adsorbent properties – meaning it binds toxins and other elements to its porous surface to extract them.
To many in the health industry, it’s obvious why this super ingredient is also being used for mouth care. More than an all-natural way to whiten and remove stains from your teeth, activated charcoal can balance your oral micro-bio system, reduce acid, prevent cavities, and improve bad breath. With all these incredible benefits, activated charcoal dental floss is the obvious next step for oral care.
Not only does flossing in general boost the effectiveness of oral health, but activated charcoal floss clings to plaque, removing buildup where a toothbrush can’t typically reach. Its stain-removing properties help to thoroughly clean those hard to reach places between the teeth. Plus, the natural black color of charcoal dental floss helps you better see unwanted offenders - plaque and food debris – so you can feel good about a job well done.
If you’re still not sure about whether you should make the switch when your current roll runs out, here are three more benefits as to why an activated charcoal dental floss is the perfect addition to your daily routine.
Gum health is one of the primary ways to reduce the risk of chronic health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. This is because bacteria can enter the bloodstream through our gums and damage the inner lining of blood vessels, making us more susceptible to infections and disease. By using activated charcoal floss, you are engaging the adsorption powers of charcoal and extracting bad bacteria and toxins from the gums, contributing to your overall health.
Safe to use
For many years, activated charcoal was (and continues to be) a mainstay in the medical industry as an essential tool in managing poison consumption. Now, you can find over-the-counter charcoal supplements to help reduce bloating and even get rid of that pesky hangover. Made without harmful chemicals, fluorides, or unnatural ingredients, this powerful detoxifying agent is safe both internally and topically.
Using only the most natural ingredients and products to care for the health of your mouth and body is a no-brainer. So is taking the same steps to care for the environment. A regular brand, waxed nylon dental floss can take between 50 and 80 years to decompose, and that doesn’t even include the plastic container. Not only that, but depending on where the floss ends up, it could impact marine life or contribute to the growing amount of landfill waste.
Switching to a bamboo-based floss is free of preservatives and harmful wax, which is good for you. Plus, bamboo is one of the Earth's fastest-growing resources and takes significantly less time to decompose than traditional plastic or floss, which is good for the environment. After all those amazing benefits, it is clear that activated charcoal-infused floss from Terra and Co is the next amazing product to add to your beauty routine.
Not only is our Brilliant Black bamboo charcoal floss 100 percent biodegradable, from the floss to the packaging, it also contains organic peppermint and spearmint essential oils with powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties to further kill bad germs and soothe gum or mouth pain.
Make the total transformation to better health, inside and out, when you choose activated charcoal floss, part of the Brilliant Black Collection that also includes a charcoal bamboo toothbrush and activated charcoal toothpaste.
