Activated Charcoal has become a popular ingredient in many natural skin products today.
Although it’s a type of charcoal, it is different from the charcoal used on a bbq.
It is a fine black powder that’s produced when common charcoal is exposed to high heat. This exposure creates tiny internal spaces or holes in the charcoal, making it highly absorbent and able to trap chemicals and toxins.
It is believed that it can draw bacteria and impurities from the skin, helping to reduce acne, improving overall skin complexion and balancing oily skin.
Activated charcoal, when used in a soap or body scrub, removes the dead skin doing a deep clean and draws out the impurity leaving your skin clean, detoxed and fresh.
