Activated charcoal an old remedy for teeth whitening in Morocco
Activated charcoal although has reached the main stream now, from everything to teeth whitening, facial masks, soaps and now dry hair shampoo. It has been around for a long time, its only us city folk who were a little slow to catch on. It was and still is used commonly in water and air filtration as well. #charcoaluses #charcoalmorocco
Here in Morocco whenever we try to explain the benefits of charcoal for skin or teeth to our customers , they already know it! "Yes my grandparents in the countryside used to rub their teeth with charcoal sticks" , yes, the same charcoal sticks used in barbecues(as seen in our pic) Well charcoal has slightly advanced since then.
Charcoal and activated charcoal are 2 different things. Activated charcoal has been processed twice inorder to increase the absorption power by 1000x . What does that mean?
When charcoal is activated, it changes the structure causing the surface area to become larger and more porous, collecting toxins, chemicals, and unwanted materials. In Anti Poison Centers, charcoal is used to absorb toxins and rid them from the body. It can also be used when there is digestive bloat or gas, so don't hesitate in trying some. You'll be quite impressed and the results, just make sure you take enough. #charcoalforgas #charcoalforbloating
When applied onto skin or teeth, the same chemistry happens. The charcoal acts as a magnet to bacterias, sebum, and impurities on the teeth and skin. As they become attached they are then washed away with water upon rinsing, Leaving the skin cleaner and free of impurities.
