Nothing about Hello’s Activated Charcoal Extra Freshening Mouthwash looks like it would freshen your teeth and mouth. In fact, it looks like something an evil villain dad would threaten to wash his kids’ mouths out with for talking too clean. But despite its jet black hue, activated charcoal is a natural detoxifier and whitener that has proven itself to be the perfect yin to our dirty lives’ yang.
You can find activated charcoal in a ton of different cleaning and personal hygiene products, from room deodorizers to soap to toothbrushes. I also regularly use it in pill form as a hangover cure that sucks up the acid in my sour stomach. Here Hello Oral Care folds activated charcoal, plus a few other natural ingredients, into a fluoride- and alcohol-free black mouthwash.
Adding to the charcoal’s detoxifying skills are coconut oil and tea tree oil for additional gunk extraction and breath freshening. The California-based Hello makes all of its oral hygiene products vegan and free of animal testing.
