Antilla Health are an oral healthcare company specialising in premium natural, vegan and cruelty free products and have a range of natural whitening and activated charcoal toothpaste. They are a new company based in the UK and have just released their first Kalkaire: Black Edition products, which is a uniquely flavoured coconut activated charcoal toothpaste.
The Kalkaire charcoal black edition is free from bleach and peroxide used in other teeth whitening products. Charcoal is a natural substance that helps whiten teeth while promoting good oral health by changing the pH balance in the mouth, helping prevent cavities, bad breath and gum disease, and is great for stain removal. They combine this with coconut oil to not only give a great taste but also to help leave the mouth feeling fresh and clean. After brushing the coconut helps leave a barrier on the teeth which reduces the build up of bacteria for the rest of the day.
They are currently working on seven new products and will hopefully be releasing two new products by the end of July.

MY THOUGHTS: So the charcoal is actually derived from coconut ash or coconut shell which is interesting. When using the toothpaste it foams well and tastes like coconut with a subtle mint flavour, and leaves a coconuty aftertaste. It kind of taste like you could eat it!
The toothpaste is black when you put it on your toothbrush, but then it goes white and foamy when you're brushing your teeth like normal toothpaste, which I like, and makes it less messy, unlike charcoal powders.
If you're not used to coconut toothpaste, like anything, you would get used to the flavour, and they also have a double mint flavour. I have used activated charcoal toothpaste before and I do see a difference in the whiteness of my teeth! For extra whitening power sometime I will use activated charcoal powder too. Using the powder followed by the toothpaste. They don't sell powders but this works just as well!
