Charcoal in skincare?! No way!
Yep! Activated charcoal has been used for a long time to treat various ailments. When ingested, toxins bind to the charcoal. When the charcoal leaves your body, so do the toxins! The same thing happens when you use skincare containing activated charcoal.
We use activated charcoal in our Detox soap. When you wash your hands, face, or body with the Detox soap, any toxins on your skin will attach to the charcoal and get washed away!
Many people also enjoy using toothpaste that contains activated charcoal in hopes that it will help to whiten their teeth. Remember, this is not the same charcoal that is used in grilling. Activated charcoal is charcoal that is treated with oxygen at high temperatures. This changes its structure and turns it into a fine black powder that is either sold as-is or encapsulated. It's then safe for consumption and use in skincare products.
Have you experienced the wonderful effects of activated charcoal yet?!
