You wouldn’t necessarily be drawn to purchasing a bar of black soap containing charcoal. Still, because of its natural ability to draw out dirt and debris from deep inside pores, activated charcoal has become a key ingredient in many skincare products, shampoos and face-masks.
Activated charcoal naturally deep cleans and gently exfoliates to remove dead skin cells without drying skin and works especially well on oily, combination and blemish-prone skin. It has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties making it a great choice for acne-prone skin and is gentle enough for all skin types.
Activated charcoal is a type of charcoal that's processed to make it more porous. This porous texture distinguishes it from other charcoals, including the type used for barbecuing. (Information courtesy www.healthline.com/nutrition/activated-charcoal).
Our Patchouli & Orange soap with activated charcoal is a beautiful fragrant bar of soft fruity orange blended with Patchouli and packed with activated charcoal. This soap produces a rich foamy lather.
