Natural Toothpaste with Bamboo Charcoal from Thailand

Natural Toothpaste with Bamboo Charcoal from ThailandBeauty and personal care products are among the most popular souvenirs from Thailand. Tourists buy various coconut products, face powders, talcum powders, soaps, foot soaks, and numerous other products, but it is Thai toothpastes that enjoy special popularity. These unusual toothpastes in round jars are packed with natural ingredients that will make your teeth incredibly white and keep your oral cavity healthy.

Tooth powders and toothpastes in their present-day form are a relatively new invention. Tooth powders came into general use in the 19th century. Toothpastes were first marketed several decades later but didn’t surpass the popularity of tooth powder until the First World War.

Before that, people kept their teeth clean using whatever they had on hand. Baking soda and chalk were used as tooth powder; however, their continuous use damaged tooth enamel. In some regions, people made teeth cleaning twigs by chewing twigs of curtain plants until one end was frayed. This end was used as an improvised toothbrush. In the Indian subcontinents, neem twigs are traditionally used to make chew sticks. In Muslim regions, teeth cleaning twigs (miswak) are made from the arak tree.

Thai toothpastes are so popular because they were born from a combination of traditional recipes and modern formulations and production methods. On the one hand, these toothpastes are based on natural ingredients such as miswak, noni, clove, mangosteen, aloe vera, coconut oil, green tea, morinda, licorice, mango, pineapple, and more. On the other hand, they are easy to use and compact – no need to chew twigs or figure out how to use powdered herbs or minerals to brush your teeth.

Unlike regular toothpaste in tubes, Thai toothpastes are solid and come in small round jars. Because of this, you might need some time to get used to them, but they’re actually very easy to use. All you need to do is make light stroking motions on the surface of your Thai toothpaste with a dry toothbrush or use a special spatula (that usually comes with the toothpaste) to transfer some product onto you toothbrush. Then you can brush your teeth as you normally would.

Natural toothpastes don’t lather as much as their mass-market counterparts, but their cleansing and whitening properties are excellent. Some manufacturers infuse their products with special whitening ingredients that make them even more effective. For example, Rochjana produces natural toothpaste with bamboo charcoal.

Bamboo charcoal is used in tooth cleaning products due to its polishing, absorbent, and antiseptic properties. It gently removes dental plaque, making the teeth clean and white, inhibits the growth of pathogenic microbes in the oral cavity, speeds up the healing of minor injuries, and prevents gum inflammation and gingivitis.

Another active ingredient that can be found in the toothpaste is noni extract. Noni, also known as Indian mulberry, is a fruit-bearing tree native to Southeast Asia and Australasia. Thanks to their high content of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, noni fruit are widely used in traditional medicine. As a toothpaste ingredient, noni extract is valued for its antioxidant properties. It prevents gum bleeding and tooth decay, reduces tooth sensitivity, relieves toothache, and keeps your breath fresh during the day.

Working together, bamboo charcoal and noni extract effectively remove coffee, tea, wine and tobacco stains from the surface of the teeth, as well as kill the bacteria responsible for bad breath and various diseases of the oral cavity.
