Diamond Whites Black Edition is a 100% natural tooth polish made from 100% activated coconut shell charcoal. The Charcoal is produced by heating pulverised carbonaceous coconut shells to very high temperatures (600-900°C) followed by “activation” using steam or hot air to erode the internal surfaces of the product and thereby increase its absorptive surface area.
It is this ‘absorptive surface’ that pulls and clears toxins and helps to remove stains from your teeth. It says it will not only change the way you whiten your teeth, but also strengths gums, removes toxins from the mouth and absorbs bacteria. You simply dip your wet toothbrush in the powder, gently brush your teeth in circular motions and spit.
TheChicGeek says, “It’s strange how something so black can claim to whiten your teeth. When this pot of black powder appeared it did feel a little primitive in our world of science and long labelling, but then, hey, it’s usually the old ways that are always the best. We all know about charcoal’s properties of riding the skin of impurities, so it’s logical it would work in your mouth.
It’s really simple to use, if a little messy. I was worried the charcoal would stain my guns grey, but it rinsed out really easily. It doesn’t say how often you should use it, but I would suggest once a week.
It’s always hard to judge colour change unless you go Towie brilliant white, but it certainly passed that satisfied tongue across the teeth swipe afterwards.
I think this is the oral hygiene equivalent of cleaning your windows with vinegar and newspaper”.
