It used to be that getting coal in one's stocking was bad! Not with Activated Charcoal skin care products! Activated Charcoal is basically charcoal with special "pockets" that absorb impurities and toxins. You've heard of charcoal filters for aquariums -- it's the same thing -- the filters cleanse and purify the water by absorbing the toxins in the water (or if we want to be technical, it adsorbs, which means it literally pulls the toxic chemical molecules towards itself like a magnet.) The point being, this stuff is highly effective -- so effective that poison victims are treated by ingesting activated charcoal.
Activated charcoal has a lot of benefits. Here are a few benefits regarding skin care, according to Readers' Digest Best Heath Magazine. 1. Smaller pores
Our pores absorb oil and dirt which makes them appear bigger. Using an Activated Charcoal mask can remove the impurities from your pores and improve your complexion. Our Charcoal mask also includes Bentonite clay for added cleansing power and beneficial properties .
2. Balances oily skin
Using a cleanser or mask with activated charcoal can reduce excess oil, restoring the natural balance of the complexion. Our Activated Charcoal Masks and Activated Charcoal Bar Soaps are both gentle on the skin. Our bar soap is a Castile soap made with organic coconut oil, olive oil, and castor oil. Each batch is pH tested to ensure properly processed soap.
3. Treat acne
There are a lot of causes for acne, but activated charcoal is known for helping some with symptoms associated with acne. Our Activated Charcoal Bar Soap contains Rhassoul Clay, a powerful cleanser, along with beneficial essential oils (rosemary, tea tree, clary sage, and lavender) known for improving skin tone. Our Activated Charcoal mask with Bentonite clay is perfect for spot-treating problem areas by helping to remove oils and impurities from the skin.
4. Deep cleanse your skin
Activated Charcoal can be used on all skin types to deep-clean your skin. Whether you use a mask or soap, the charcoal will draw out toxins, impurities and excess oil from your skin.
5. Soothe and heal bites, cuts and skin irritations
Since Activated Charcoal can remove impurities and toxins, it's good for treating stings, bites, and minor skin infections by helping to remove venom or infection. It can be applied topically as a paste to encourage relief and healing.
