Impurities, dirt, and air pollution can all take a toll on our skin and hair each day, making it appear dull and irritated.  For skin and hair deep cleaning, activated charcoal may sound like an unlikely ingredient, but it has already been effectively used for thousands of years!

Recently, charcoal has gained popularity for its skin and hair benefits.  Free from harmful chemicals, this all natural wonder can help draw out impurities in your skin, creating beautiful results, including a fresher, healthier appearance and a radiant glow. 

 

 

How It Works:
  • Activated charcoal is charcoal that has been treated with heat or oxygen to increase its ability to absorb

  • Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, thereby fighting acne and helping you to achieve a flawless complexion.

  • Charcoal is not metabolized, adsorbed or absorbed by the body, but it can be used to treat some poisonous bites and disinfect some wounds. Activated charcoal powder is proven to adsorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances, which makes it a popular ingredient in facial masks.

  • And because it absorbs 100-200 times its weight in fluids (like oil and water) and possesses a magnetic-like quality when it comes to attracting oil and dirt, charcoal is especially effective in degreasing and unclogging even the most stubborn pores in men’s skin, which is oilier and thicker than women’s.
