The health and beauty benefits of coconut have been known for basically as long as coconuts have been a thing! The obvious ones are using coconut oil to cook with and to nourish your hair and your skin but did you know that coconut oil is also amazing for your teeth? Well, Oral-B know all about it and are sharing it with you in their 3D Whitening Therapy Coconut toothpaste. Here’s everything you need to know in a (coco) nut shell…
Coconut Oil for Your Teeth
You may have heard of using coconut oil to naturally whiten and clean teeth using a process called oil pulling. This process involves putting a teaspoon of oil in your mouth and swishing it around for 10-15 minutes. This process, although loved by some, can be pretty bad for your drains, the environment and not to mention it may make you want to gag a little!
Thankfully, Oral-B have developed a toothpaste containing the well-loved oil to help your pearly whites shine without having to swirl it around in your mouth!
