The charcoal for teeth what is it ?


The charcoal for the teeth you may already have heard of under the appellations of "activated charcoal" or " activated charcoal ". The principles of the charcoal are activated by a double carbonization.

Carried out at temperatures very, very warm (between 600 and 900°C) the first carbonization is carried out in total absence of air and organic materials such as bark, wood (willow, linden) or shells (peanut or coconut)

The second carbonization is carried out at the same temperature as the first, but during it there is the presence of air, of water vapor as well as gas oxidants.


It is thanks to these two carbonisations that we obtain a black powder. This powder has a property major that we are looking for :

  • It is very absorbent, it absorbs the toxins, microorganisms, and waste that are present at the surface of our teeth.


The active coal is very little used as teeth whitening in France. It is especially known as a very good product against the problems of digestion. What is not known is that today it is found virtually everywhere, in cosmetics, in the hospitals, it treats even poisoning or overdose of drugs.
