Charcoal is simply amazing and has a number of health benefits. Activated charcoal has been used for years to help rid the body of poisonous toxins, relieve insect bites and bee stings, whiten teeth, and all sorts of medicinal purposes.
Of course, we are most interested in how it helps to reduce acne and remove skin impurities. Charcoal is extremely absorbent and is great for those battling oily skin, while its antibacterial properties help those who are acne-prone. Considered an anti-aging ingredient, it is said to tighten pores and reduce inflammation. In our soap, we love how it smoothes our skin as a gentle, natural exfoliant. If you are looking for something a tiny bit stronger, be on the lookout for our black sugar & charcoal scrub, currently in the works.
Charcoal is said to do its best work on skin impurities and excess oils the longer it can stay on the skin. That’s exactly why we are currently developing a charcoal clay mask.
Speaking of which, our new clay mask line is coming very soon – watch this space!
