Charcoal Floss - The Miracle String

You’ve seen this ingredient in a lot of beauty products and herbal medicines. Activated charcoal is a proven component that removes toxins and other impurities.

Aside from toothpaste and toothbrushes with activated charcoal, it’s now included in another essential dental product: floss.

What makes this ingredient so widespread, and how does it work? Let’s delve deeper into this magic element and learn more ways to use activated charcoal in your daily life.


Why Activated Charcoal Floss Works

In general, activated charcoal dental floss just like any other regular kind. Flossing your teeth removes food particles and bacteria in between the spaces of your teeth. Any toothbrush can’t reach these areas, no matter how thin its bristles are. That’s why flossing is so effective.

Adding in activated charcoal increases the benefits you get when you floss regularly. This ingredient is famous not only for its cleansing properties but for whitening as well. Charcoal floss will gently but effectively polish your teeth to remove surface stains. With regular use, you’ll notice whiter and shinier teeth.

Here are more benefits of using dental floss with activated charcoal…

Safe and Organic

Activated charcoal is created by oxidizing natural materials such as wood, peat, and coconut shells using extreme temperatures. Once they turn black as coal, an additive is incorporated to activate the natural detoxifying properties in the materials. The result is activated charcoal.

This process proves that this ingredient is both safe and organic. Since its composed of natural materials, no harmful chemicals are added to create it. It also assures the safety of the product and won’t cause any allergic reactions or side effects.

Eco-Friendly and Sustainable

As previously stated in the process, the materials to create activated charcoal are made from natural resources. In addition, those resources are also sustainable and don’t cause harm to the environment because of over-harvesting.

Most commercial flossing products are made of nylon, which is a non-biodegradable material that does not decompose. Charcoal floss is usually made out of bamboo fiber, which comes from a sustainable plant that grows rapidly and abundantly. Even with mass production, charcoal floss is environmentally friendly. So not only are you keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy, but you’re also saving the environment by saying no to plastic floss!

Enhances Immunity System and Cardiovascular Health

Some studies were conducted to prove that oral health is connected to other diseases in the body. While it’s been proven in diabetes, there are still tons of debates needed to link to cardiovascular diseases.

Researchers believe that people who suffer from periodontal disease are at risk of developing heart disease as well. The reason they back up is that the bacteria from your gums travels to your bloodstream up to your heart. We don’t know whether it’s just another scare to keep us brushing three times a day. However, it’s valid enough to keep your oral habits healthy for a healthier body.

What Can I Do?

Flossing with charcoal floss is not enough. A complete oral regimen is necessary to keep your mouth healthy. As well as regular trips to your dentist every six months, you need to make sure that you keep up with the following steps:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day. After every meal is best. Brushing is the most common and basic way to remove any bacteria and germs causing plaque and cavities. Make sure that you use toothpaste with fluoride as its active ingredient. Brushing in at least two minutes is ideal.
  • Flossing your teeth. Most people believe that brushing your teeth is already enough. However, flossing your teeth offers some benefits that your toothbrush can never give. The dental floss is thin enough to reach in between the tight spaces of your teeth to get rid of small food particles and bacteria. For best results, floss your teeth at least once a day after brushing.
  • Gargle with mouthwash. This is an optional step but equally effective. Gargling with mouthwash may seem uncomfortable for some because of its sting. In this case, it might be best to consider using a mouthwash that doesn’t contain any alcohol that causes the stingy flavor.
  • Limit sugar and caffeine. Your teeth’s mortal enemies are sugar and caffeine. While it may be impossible to cut back on it for coffee lovers, lessening your intake is already good enough. Sugar doesn’t always mean candy. Anything with excess amounts of sugar, such as sodas, juices, and even some snacks will ruin your pearly whites.
  • See your dentist if you need to. A toothache is one of the most uncomfortable and unbearable pain for anyone. If you’re experiencing any pain in your teeth for more than 24 hours, call for an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible. Your dentist may give you some pain-relief medicine to make you feel more comfortable. But if the pain is unbearable, you can go to the emergency room.


We rely on our teeth for so many things. Even though they’re strong, they will eventually show signs of neglect which may be irreversible. Take care of your teeth and make you watch your sugar and caffeine intake. Once your teeth are strong and healthy, you can visit your dentist for regular cleaning and even teeth whitening.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive and quick teeth whitening solution, White Republic has a teeth whitening kit that will give you results in just a few days. This product is less expensive than in-clinic teeth whitening treatments and the ingredients are non-toxic and FDA-approved, ensuring your safety.

We also have our own charcoal floss product. Similar to our teeth whitening kit, our charcoal floss is made of 100% bamboo fiber and infused with activated charcoal. This floss can be used with the whitening kit for a faster way to whiten your teeth.
