Used for centuries charcoal is known for its purifying, enriching and restorative benefits. It is often referred to as “active charcoal”. For over 10,000 years healers from Chinese Medicine, Ayuredic Medicine and Western medicine have used activated charcoal.

Charcoal is the world’s oldest detoxifying remedies. It is now being used in a range of skincare and bodycare products around the globe. Activated charcoal is carbon that is infused with oxygen. This creates a super porous surface. This increases its ability to absorb matter and toxins. This super absorbency plus antibacterial properties, makes activated charcoal an ideal ingredient for products for your body. Activated charcoal has no smell and no taste.

There are many benefits of activated charcoal in body products. Here are just a few:

  • Traps toxins and chemicals and flushes them out of your body 
  • Attracts and absorbs dirt and oil – when the dirt and oil in your pores comes into contact with carbon, they stick to it and get washed away when you rinse.
  • Draws bacteria, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of the skin – once flushed to the surface of your body you can wash these things away leaving you with smoother skin.
  • Helps fight acne
