What makes activated charcoal all the rage?
Activated charcoal seems to be everywhere right now. But there's a reason it's been so popular; charcoal is fantastic for the skin! It detoxifies the skin and draws out impurities. It also helps to tighten pores and smooths the skin. It binds to dirt and oil and pulls it out of pores, leaving skin clean and refreshed. Because of its oil absorbing properties, it’s especially fantastic for combination to oily skin. If you suffer from dry skin, it can help replace harsher cleansers. This makes activated charcoal perfect for any skin type.
How does it work?
Activated charcoal has high absorptive abilities, which means it draws other elements into itself. Charcoal is activated through heat and exposure to steam. This process causes the carbon to have pockets in its surface. When it is exposed to impurities, it becomes trapped in the carbon's pockets. Charcoal also has antibacterial properties that can help heal wounds.

What are some other benefits of using charcoal in your skin care products?
Not only is charcoal an amazing natural soap colorant but it can help relieve acne and other skin problems. Acne has many possible causes including blocked pores, dirt and bacteria on the skin's surface, and excess oil production. It is said that using charcoal on your skin can remove impurities for the skin's surface, draw out toxins from beneath the skin, and the antibacterial properties can also help alleviate infections or keep them from happening.
