Toothpaste is one of the most essential grooming products in one’s medicine cabinet. In the realm of “all-natural” oral care products there is not wide variety on the market to choose from. Oral health is crucial to overall health: when the mouth isn’t clean, it can wreak havoc on other organs and eventually make the body sick. At CARBON 6 LAB, we believe that a beautiful smile isn’t only aesthetically pleasing, but that you will physically feel better by having one.
The initial idea was to make the best possible all-natural toothpaste on the market tailored to a homeopathic lifestyle. A product that was dynamic, healthy, and beautiful while being high quality. Baking soda based toothpaste is popular, but Activated Charcoal works in the same way, but much better. Activated Charcoal adsorbs more odors and toxins, it is less abrasive, and whitens teeth. We wanted to give birth to a product that was truly natural and healthy with the most beautiful packaging on the market. Our team worked hard to make a product with a new, non-distinct, fresh flavor, not the standard mint or cinnamon. We have created a paste for thinkers, those who create, research, the artist, the designer, the advocate, the warrior and the pioneer. This is the paste for those who do not take “NO” as an answer.
Jonathon Anderson grew up with a mostly a naturopath / homeopathic lifestyle due to his mother’s dedication to health and wellness. Following that path, he discovered Activated Charcoal and its incredible properties years ago. This interest lead to Jonathon starting to play around with it - creating his own wellness detox shots, skincare masks and then using it for oral health with home made tooth polishes. In 2015, Jonathon met Dr. Martin Giniger at a charity event in Los Angeles. They hit it off, and Jonathan mentioned an idea that he had for a toothpaste utilizing Activated Charcoal.
The pair started developing what became Carbon 6 Lab toothpaste almost immediately. They dissected what synthetic ingredients in standard toothpastes do, and found all natural ingredients that fill those functions, and more. In addition to the Activated Charcoal, Carbon 6 Lab ingredients include oral probiotics, oregano oil, aloe vera, Irish moss, xylitol, tea tree oil, grapefruit seed extract, and more. While these ingredients are full of flavor, each one has specific properties to enhance oral hygiene.
