All of you Glossies will have received a Colgate Max White Charcoal Toothpaste in your September edits! While I don’t doubt that you’ve seen funny pictures of smiling teeth covered in black paste all over Instagram (charcoal is a pretty hot topic), you may not actually know how charcoal toothpaste works.

I mean, I’d never used one before and had lots of questions about it, so I can only imagine that you do too. With that in mind, here’s the lowdown on everything you need to know.

How Does The New Colgate® Max White™ Charcoal Toothpaste Work?

Your Colgate Max White Charcoal Toothpasteblends activated charcoal with mineral micro-particles to remove up to 100% of surface stains and restore natural whiteness to your teeth.

It is also formulated with special salts (known as polyphosphates, if you’re interested in the technical term) that prevent new stains from appearing.

Basically, it is clinically proven to brighten your pearly whites! What’s not to love?

How Long Should I Brush With A Charcoal Toothpaste?

For best results, brush your teeth with this toothpaste for 2 minutes morning and night every day.

How Long Will It Take For Me To See Results?

The new Colgate Max White Charcoal Toothpaste has a unique formula that creates a gentle mineral scrubbing. After one week when used twice daily, it will have removed up-to 100% of surface stains, and started to prevent new stains from appearing.

Our Glossies have been really impressed:

This is the best toothpaste I have ever used! My teeth and gums felt clean, refreshed and healthy.

Does Charcoal Toothpaste Damage Your Enamel?

You may have read some criticism of charcoal toothpaste online, claiming that it damages your enamel. While I won’t speak for other toothpaste brands, I can assure you that the Colgate Max White Charcoal Toothpaste won’t harm your enamel, even if you use it every day.

Unlike some kinds of charcoal toothpaste, your Colgate Max White Charcoal Toothpaste contains sodium fluoride. This is the ingredient that helps to prevent cavities and tooth decay.

Basically, you can just swap out your normal toothpaste for this charcoal-based whitening one.

An Extra Tip

If you’re embracing the new charcoal toothpaste trend, why not get on board with the bamboo toothbrush one too? Did you know that Colgate have also launched their Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush? Made with 100% natural bamboo handle, the Colgate Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrush is a great plastic-free alternative to typical toothbrushes. It’s also packaged in recyclable cardboard, so you can recycle that too!

It’s a great way to keep your teeth looking pearly white while still being environmentally conscious. You can get yours at now!
