Doesn’t it seem a bit backwards to brush your teeth with black toothpaste in order to make them whiter? I thought the same thing…until I tried activated charcoal toothpaste.
The product I had the pleasure of trying was My Magic Mud Activated Charcoal Whitening Toothpaste in the peppermint flavor. As someone who doesn’t use toothpaste with fluoride, I was eager to try an alternate to my usual Tom’s toothpaste. (Some doctors have said fluoride can cause several health problems, but some studies have also been debunked. Since I have a chronic illness, I like to play it safe. I don’t use deodorant with aluminum, either!)
