Don’t let the dark color of Carbon 6 Lab toothpaste fool you. This scientific formula is made from all natural ingredients that are pH-balanced and sulfate-free. The carbonized paste contains plant-derived antimicrobial oils, oral probiotics and chlorophyll to help maintain not only healthy teeth and gums, but overall health as well. Why charcoal you may ask? The activated charcoal removes stains without the harsh abrasives of standard toothpaste, and freshens your breath while absorbing and eliminating impurities. So not only are you improving the health of your teeth and mouth, you’re improving your overall health as well.
For over 10,000 years, Western medicine has used activated charcoal to eliminate poisons and regulate intestinal health through the process of “adsorption“. Not to be confused with absorption, adsorption is when a thin layer of molecules adheres to the surface of solids or liquids…in other words charcoal absorbs all the bad stuff since it’s so porous. Just two grams of activated charcoal powder has about the same surface area as a football field!
In addition to the charcoal, Carbon 6 Lab uses other elemental ingredients: Irish Moss (naturally antiviral), Xylitol (helps maintain a neutral oral pH level, prevents bacteria from sticking to teeth, and reduces plaque build-up), Bentonite Clay (absorbs toxins while whitening and re-mineralizing teeth, Oregano oil (offers pain relief and is antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory), S. Salivarius K12 (attacks bacteria and helps with gum inflammation), Aloe Vera (fights gingivitis), Grapefruit Seed Extract (is an antioxidant, immunity booster and natural pH-stabilizer), Perilla Seed Extract (reduces plaque formation and acid production), Tea tree oil (fights infections and soothes oral pain), and Chlorophyll (full of antioxidants and known for its cleansing, healing and odor-fighting properties).
When I used Carbon 6 Lab, my mouth and teeth felt clean and healthy. It left me with a fresh feeling but not an over whelming minty taste, which I prefer because some toothpastes can be a little too much to handle. It felt good to use something that was all natural and good for my overall health.
