Activated charcoal has been used as natural remedy to help absorb toxins from the body. Lately, social media posts have suggested that activated charcoal powder can be used as an alternative to toothpaste, similarly applied by a toothbrush. Even though there are many oral health benefits, we do not recommend brushing with activated charcoal alone as a dental care solution.
Finding, sourcing and purchasing organic ingredients, such as activated charcoal, from reputable sources can be very difficult. Each ingredient in the Dr. Brite toothpaste serves a purpose, unlike DIY toothpaste or alternative substances that that may not include all the necessary ingredients to effectively clean your teeth and gums.
Our organic toothpaste was professionally formulated by a surgeon and a dentist. Together the doctor-mom duo created a natural toothpaste for adults and kids that are free of harmful ingredients and other unnecessary chemicals. Learn more about our organic ingredients and responsible sourcing.
