I have recently become obsessed with using activated charcoal in making my products. I started using activated charcoal toothpaste and noticed a difference in the appearance of my teeth in less than a week. Activated charcoal is used in many more serious circumstances but I just love putting in my soaps as an anti-oxidant for the skin.
Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. Though you may not immediately associate charcoal with healthy skin or skin-care products, activated charcoal boasts beauty benefits for skin by drawing oil, dirt and other harmful substances from clogged pores due to its adsorption powers.
