Based on official introduction from raggysha.co :

Naturally lighten and buff your teeth while strengthening enamel and detoxifying your mouth with our best selling Tooth Polish.




 

 This Polish will: ɷ Naturally whiten and polish your teeth up to two shades lighter ɷ Detoxify the mouth to freshen your breath ɷ Protect the teeth's enamel ɷ Promote healthy gums



Steam Activated Coconut Charcoal and Organic Australian Clay naturally removes toxins, stains and plaque from your teeth through a process called adsorption, in which the two ingredients bind with these particles to help you flush them out of your teeth and mouth.



How do you use it? - Dip a wet toothbrush into the polish powder. Very gently brush in small circles on your teeth for two minutes. Spit it out carefully, rinse, then brush with your everyday toothpaste. - A less messy option is to put your everyday toothpaste on your brush prior to dipping into the polish powder. This has been a proven winner for less black chaos and no second brushing after using the polish. - For best results and maintenance, use every day before bedtime in conjunction with your everyday teeth cleaning regime. This will allow residue, if there is any, to dislodge overnight. Our 100g pack has enough polish powder for 180 days use. What's in it? Steam Activated Charcoal Powder derived from Coconuts, Organic Australian Bentonite, Sodium Bicarbonate, Organic Stevia powder.

After comparison, i realized the tooth polish powder is work ! It effectively whiten my yellow teeth XD  i will continuing using it =D
