I use this primarily for brushing my teeth. The texture is smooth and soft. I dampen my toothbrush first, add toothpaste and then dip it in the jar (obviously, you probably wouldn't want to do this if sharing it!). It's pretty much odor free and seems like a nice quality, although I don't have any other experience with activated charcoal powder. If you use it for your teeth, plan to clean your sink every time you use it. It's messy. ??
