I received a package in the past week and it contains the Colgate Charcoal Clean toothpaste. At first, I thought, “Charcoal in toothpaste? What for?”, but then I realized I have been using other products that contain charcoal as one of its ingredients.
I don’t know how long has the Colgate Charcoal Clean toothpaste been available in the market, but I’ll be honest this is the first time I’ve known about it. I rarely do grocery shopping and even through online ordering, I go for my usual products. However, I gave this one a try to see if it’s a great product and worth buying.
The toothpaste is packed in a stand-up tube with a plastic hinged lid. I love this kind of packaging because you can keep the product upright. It says in the packaging that it is recyclable so that’s a plus point for responsible selling and use of a product for me. I checked the Colgate website and they have explained their tube technology and their transition to recyclable tubes for the products in their portfolio.
Living to its charcoal component, the toothpaste is black in color. When I used it, it’s just a typical toothpaste to me, however, I have observed that it does not taste as minty as any usual toothpaste products I have used. Sometimes I even throw up due to the strong menthol scent and taste of some toothpaste. It does not have that cool feeling in the mouth though which is very common on toothpaste I have used. I don’t mind as long as my mouth’s inside is clean and does not emit an unfriendly smell. Hehe.
Checking the back of the packaging it also says that the Colgate Charcoal Clean toothpaste is vegan, without any added sugar and gluten, and is responsibly made.
I eat a lot. And with that said, it is expected that my teeth will collect stains and plaque. But after brushing with the Colgate Charcoal Clean toothpaste, my mouth felt so clean. I don’t feel any bumpy parts on my teeth and even without any minty scent, my breath is pleasantly fresh and clean. Easy to rinse without any sting or “mouth sideburns” as I call it.
