Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“I LOVE this toothpaste. I’ve bought about 4 or 5 brands of activated charcoal toothpaste. Some promised teeth whitening too and it didn’t work. Some had an odd flavor with the mint but the teeth whitening worked. Now I’ve tried hello. This toothpaste constains A LOT MORE activated charcoal than the other brands I’ve tried. While the others were pure black, it changed to sort of a grey or watery look. hello stayed completely black in the mouth and the mint is an excellent fresh taste of mint. You don’t need that much on your toothbrush because of how much charcoal is in it. You have to try this tube.” – Lyndsey

“One of my son’s friends spilled kerosene in the trunk of my car over the winter, which went into the carpet and under it on to the spare tire and entire section under it. I have tried everything to get the odor out, including taking out the carpet, scrubbing the car and spare tire, different kinds of cleaners, air fresheners and any and every ‘old fashioned remedies’ I could find but still smelled the kerosene. I saw the ads for this product and figured I’d try it. It’s only been a few days and the odor is just about gone. This is amazing for removing odors, the kerosene is just about the worst type of smell that just doesn’t go away, yet with the bags (I used 2), it’s just about gone.” – mom

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“So I decided to give these charcoal bags a try in our guest bathroom because for the longest time there has been like this really odd smell that I can’t seem to get rid of. I’ve tried Lysol and febreeze which work for a bit but the smell always returns. My friend told me about bamboo charcoal bags and how they work naturally to get rid of smells and I decided to give these a try. To be honest I chose these because of the color and because they looked pretty. Once I got them, I put two of them in the bathroom thinking one wouldn’t be enough and I swear that just two days later, the smell is gone. COMPLETELY! I’m gonna keep both bags in there for a while but I’m hoping one bag will do the trick so I can take the other one out and use it somewhere else. I really works!!” – Hoang Bui

Bought these charcoal bags and put underneath the shoe rack where the exposed plywood is and that took care of the smell. Also using it in the drawers of new dressers for baby’s room.

23. Brooklyn Botany Activated Charcoal Scrub – For Deep Cleansing & Exfoliation – Pore Minimizer & Reduces Wrinkles, Acne Scars, Blackhead Remover (10 oz)

Features and Benefits

Product Testimonial

“I’m a licensed Esthetician and I’ve used this 3 times. I said I would use it twice a week since it’s so course and I’m fortunate to have “good” skin. I’ve always had this cluster of small white heads in the crease of my chin but after using this only THREE times, they are virtually gone. I use this in the shower and I follow it off with my vitiman C, anti-aging cleanser. I’ve seen some people complain about their skin being black but since it’s the first thing I do in the shower I guess it must wash off. After my shower I use my toner, serums, lightest to heaviest and after the last one soaks in for a few I use my anti-aging retinol moisturizer. This is a must for exfoliating. I love it!!! Notice an anti-aging theme? I turn 35 in June and plan on stopping the aging process all together.” – Mel B

Thanks for making a great product!!” – Sean

Amazing Story on Charcoal

Would you put your life on the line to prove a point?

In the year 1831, a professor named Pierre-Fleurus Touéry from Montpellier France decided to test the effectiveness of charcoal.

Touéry performed this test by putting his life at risk in front of an audience.

This experiment was performed in front of the French Academy of Medicine.

Touéry took a dose of strychnine that was 10x higher than what was necessary to be lethal.

Strychnine is a poison sourced from a plant called Strychnos nux-vomica.

You can find this plant in southern Asia.

Strychnine is still being used today as a form of pesticide to kill rats.

After taking the Strychnine, Touéry immediately took 15 grams of activated charcoal.

Touéry then stood in front of colleagues and they waited.

Tension filled the room as everyone had no idea what would happen next.

Touéry kept standing and eventually walked out of the whole experiment like a boss.

We do not recommend anyone doing this experiment.

This lesson teaches us that charcoal is an extremely powerful detoxifying agent.
