Nature's Choice Detoxinol is made from the activated charcoal of coconut shells, which is a great substance for detoxing both inside and out. Charcoal has a strong affinity for absorbing impure and toxic gases in the body and drawing them out, like a magnet, and aiding your body’s natural detoxification in getting rid of any nasty toxic build up from the inside when taken orally. You can also use Nature’s Choice Detoxinol on your skin, as a drawing agent for impurities – which makes in a great addition to drawing salves, face masks and the like.

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.
  • Charcoal has a strong affinity for absorbing impure and toxic gases.
  • Effective as an internal and external detoxifying agent.
  • Made from coconut shells.


Add two heaped teaspoons of Detoxinol to a medium sized glass, add very little water to make a paste. Now fill the glass slowly, stirring vigorously all the while. Preferably taken on an empty stomach or as needed.


Never put dry De-Tox Powder in your mouth as you could choke. Always mix well into water before drinking. Charcoal may neutralize the effects of certain types of drug medication.

Activated charcoal is a must have in every household.
22/01/2022, By Van
First time using it as face mask. Works well
12/12/2021, By Leon
It's a very fine black dust, you want to be careful when opening it. Been using it for over a week now. I drink it in water, it does help with bloating. I also use it to brush my teeth, yep it will leave mess on your sink and I don't see much difference. The container is big enough so it will definitely last longer
20/07/2021, By Malebo
Ive been using activated charcoal for many years. I use it for teeth whitening and for a running tummy. It works like a charm!

Useful during my candida cleanse for getting rid of toxins. But it made me constipated, which is not so great. I would still recommend though because I think it is a very useful product.

I mix this in with my bentonite face mask powder and add water, works well and makes my pores look smaller.
14/11/2020, By Celina
05/11/2020, By Chen
This product is amazing. I use activated charcoal when I do any extended dry fasts. When I break with water I used to feel so weak as the toxins start to be released in the blood stream. This stops immediately with activated charcoal. I always use it when I do water fasting as well. The days go by without dizziness because it just binds them up leaving me energetic.
01/11/2020, By Gowwaa

Stocked up again on this as we finished our last bottle going through a tummy virus. Always have this in our home, from bloatedness to upset tummy, diarrhea, it works! Captures all the toxins on its way out
10/08/2020, By Natasha

This is a very handy product to have..I use it as a mask with cayolin clay, sometimes as a scrub with bicarb soda or even in my dough for black bread..I have even started to make my own soaps using this product.
It makes my face feels luxuriously soft, helps with acne and detox my face.
Will recommend to anybody.

21/06/2020, By Stef
Love it in my smoothies!
21/06/2020, By Mpho
I have been using this product for 6 weeks. It is so soft withand a silky texture. The herbal feel on the skin, feels like it's letting my skin breathe. My once dry acne prone skin is now moist, brighter and plumper. A pimple only visits for a day now. One pump will get you through a wash. This will definitely be my forever product.
Tip: rub product on face for no less than a minute. Let product work into the skin.
20/06/2020, By marika
Excellent product. A must have! Good to use as a detox, or when a fur child been poisoned. As a DIY facial mask mix with bentonite clay makes an excellent detoxifying mask.

05/03/2020, By Eco
03/03/2020, By Curry
Recommended by a girlfriend, clears her system well and I see my system also appreciating it now and then. Think it’s true that you shouldn’t eat it during clean eating. Use it to clean my teeth as well; gargle and then brush teeth & floss and rinse.
17/02/2020, By KOGIE

28/09/2019, By Roux
After a weekend-long trance party this really helps get the system back to normal.
24/09/2019, By Courtney Jade
I take two tea-spoons of this with two glasses of water before drinking and feel notably better the next day (less hungover than I would have been had I not had the charcoal). Gave it to my boyfriend and he agrees. However don't have when eating and drinking cleanly as it will take that goodness away too
13/09/2019, By Joy
Very versatile and effective
27/08/2019, By Candice
This product can be used in so many ways:
Teeth whitening, face mask, detoxer, etc.
I mainly use it when I feel bloated and it works like a charm.
If you can manage to swallow a slightly thicker than water consistency, this is your go-to for quick relief from bloating and flatulence.
19/08/2019, By Michelle
I did a 7 day detox using this product. Haven't noticed much of a change but I still think it's a good buy as it's very affordable and versatile.
12/08/2019, By Dan
So affordable and allows me to make homemade remedies, face-masks, and detoxing drinks without the hefty prices from store-bought products. Lasts so long as well!
22/07/2019, By Cliss

21/02/2019, By Eunice

Great value for money....I believe we should all have this at home and I keep some in my vehicle...fastest way to combat any poisoning by mouth
28/01/2019, By Rae
Absolutely love this product, there are so many uses for it, a definite need in any house hold.
28/01/2019, By Nicole
I had a nasty tummy bug and none of the over the counter meds worked. I gave the charcoal a try and after the second use it was cleared up.
08/01/2019, By Karien
For those who want to consume it to get rid of toxins: you need to have real toxic substances in your body for it to work. Unless you're heading to the emergency room, it will only pass through your system. I'm afraid the detox health craze doesn't specify what toxins actually are...
01/01/2019, By Sasha-lee
I use this as a face mask. I mix it with honey and brown sugar. The only problem is that it's messy so ensure you use it over something that can be cleaned easily. The mask leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean..
11/12/2018, By Nasiphi
I use one tub for my facials and teeth the whole year. It really does my skin well, especially because I have acne and I'm trying to treat it naturally.
19/11/2018, By Sandra
Good detox remedy
31/10/2018, By Melissa
Made charcoal buns with this and they were awesome
24/10/2018, By A
Works great does its job well
19/10/2018, By Megan
This helps with my food sensitivities and bloating and also with detox. Just don’t take too much as it can constipate one and must be taken away from food and other meds as it binds everything
19/10/2018, By vanessa
awesome to detox as well as a face mask with honey, leaves my skin soft
11/10/2018, By Malissa
I love using this when making soaps or masks.
I've even made a mixture with vaseline to use as a mascara whenever mine is finished.
21/09/2018, By Amber
Activated charcoal is a must have in all households!
03/09/2018, By Broke but stoked
Awesome product! I mix it with honey and apply it as a facial mask. My skin feels nice and smooth afterwards. It's much better than store-brought charcoal masks that are full of chemicals. Beware of the messiness though! Don't let it come into contact with clothes/towels etc. that you are fond of. Also, a great price for the large amount that you get!

Grew up in the bundus and charcoal was alsways a good substitute when we ran out of tooth paste. Feels, looks and tastes like the charcoal granny used to crush for us, happy to have found it and put it to use the moment I got home and I can see the whiteness in my teeth coming through......and I just love eating charcoal.
28/08/2018, By Becca
Using for teeth whitening alongside coconut oil whilst oil pulling. Great product.
21/08/2018, By Seh

11/07/2018, By Bridget
I brought it to detox after using medication that I had a toxic reaction to..... I couldnt bring myself to eat it..... very messy and not exactly palatable .
I gave it to a friend in end who does use it...
think I will stick to something easier to take
14/06/2018, By Sam
Strongly recommended for everyone to try.
13/06/2018, By Amelia
Black powder everywhere when you open it the first time, but very good for my tummy.
12/06/2018, By Samantha
I’ve been using the activated charcoal externally in face masks. I like it so far! It’s inexpensive, too.
10/05/2018, By Johani
Really love Nature's Choice Detoxinol, been using it for years for various ailments. Handy for bloating, food poisoning or general stomach discomfort from unhealthy food. Great to have half a teaspoon before bed after consuming alcohol as it attracts and removes toxins from your blood.
02/04/2018, By Lauren
Haven't consumed it but use it as a face mask, be aware of the mess though
01/04/2018, By Shannon
affordable and versatile. I'm reluctant to consume it but have found it works incredibly well for whitening my teeth, I add a bit to my toothpaste or coconut oil when oil pulling.
14/03/2018, By Sindy
Absolutely amazing detox product.
I gave it to 2 of my colleagues to try and they loved it. I'm ordering 2 extra bottles for them.

As a face mask, yikes!!!! Messy is an understatement. Once It dries it literally drops all over the place, soot all over the house and clothes.
13/03/2018, By Abigail
Great product for so many things - detox, stomach bugs and issues, heartburn, teeth whitening!!, and face mask. Can be a bit messy/ black powder duh, and def mixed with sonething for mask or it dries and falls off oops. Use in juices, smoothies, date bites/ protein balls too. Take at separate time than vitamins etc Good value.
09/03/2018, By Chay
I add the activated charcoal to my smoothies, and top it with coconut flakes and goji berries. It can be a little messy, so I always work over the sink.
24/02/2018, By Mo
amazing value for money! I use this to brush my teeth and it works very very well. I did however make the mistake of trying to use it to colour my chocolates black, and it seized up the chocolate but it tasted alright! lol. It made chocolate pebbles (my failed experiment). I would recommend this to anyone looking to buy activated charcoal, a little goes such a long way and it's incredible value for money.
23/02/2018, By Michelle
Brilliant price! Love the powder form.
04/02/2018, By EK
So many uses and for such a good price!
05/01/2018, By Tracey

30/11/2017, By J
Really cheap for the amount you get. Although I do not ingest this product internally, it has many other uses. am using this product for soap making.
23/10/2017, By JS
I have used this mainly as an addition to my smoothies. Once you get over the black colour, you won't look back. Think activated charcoal should be in everyone's pantry/bathroom/medical kit!
20/10/2017, By Rifa
A definite must have in ur medicine cabinet, helps with indigestion, face and hair mask, teeth whitening, all tummy bugs, and general tummy problems. For face oily skin or acne, for oily dull hair use as a mask you'll be amazed.. powder is a bit messy but totally worth it..
16/10/2017, By Kaeli
Love how versitile this product is - I can use it internally/ in smoothies/drinks or as a facemask. My only gripe is in the grittiness of the loose powder vs just injesting the capsules; but it is a lot cheaper loose and to be expected of the product
24/09/2017, By Shana
This is a vital product in my home, excellent for internal use and as a face mask.
Thank you. Have a beneficial and prosperous day.
30/08/2017, By Zia
A definite must in your 1st aid kit for accidental poisonings. Take care when opening, it's messier than you think!
28/08/2017, By Celeste
Still learning about ALL the ways to use this product, but its been great so far, and I've seen the difference since starting to use it.
The benefits and uses are vast. Would highly recommend making a part of the shopping list.
18/08/2017, By Lwazi
I have been pleasantly surprised by this product multi-functional abilities. I have used this alone by drinking it after a heavy night of drinking and woke up fresh. I have also used it in conjunction with Nature's Choice Bentonite Clay as a face mask and it worked well for me. I also gave some to my partner who had been suffering from heartburn, which eased the pain. This is a must have for every household!
14/08/2017, By Jenna
Wow - really pure and potent detox - both for insides as well as face
05/08/2017, By Lor
So good as a face mask!!

This Product is by far the Best for Stains on teeth and For a Facial mask I use it twice a month with Great results.
03/07/2017, By Heids
Love this. Use it for face mask, to whiten teeth and for tummy bugs.
21/09/2016, By Lauren
Ive been using this to whiten my teeth, and Im seeing a slow improvement over time. Its much cheaper than any charcoal toothpaste/whitening product. Perhaps Ill try a facial too!
