Activated charcoal has become popular in the beauty and cosmetic industry due to its ability to cleanse and detoxify the skin. Besides absorbing impurities and toxins, charcoal gives the skin an even tone, thanks to its exfoliating properties. Charcoal is also known to assist in reducing the size of pores on the skin.
Activated charcoal is often used to address acne and other blemishes, making it a sought-after ingredient in soaps for people with oily or acne-prone skin.
DETOXIFYING PROPERTIES OF A CHARCOAL SOAP
Activated charcoal is a highly porous substance, and it is thought that its porous nature allows it to absorb and trap impurities. When used in an organic soap, activated charcoal can help draw out dirt, grime, and other pollutants from the skin. The skin is thus left clean, well-nourished, and fully refreshed.
Some studies have also shown that activated charcoal can help reduce inflammation of the skin, which can help improve its overall health and appearance.
EXFOLIATING PROPERTIES OF A CHARCOAL SOAP
When used in soaps, activated charcoal can help remove dead skin cells and improve the overall texture of the skin. Charcoal’s abrasive properties make it an effective yet gentle scrub capable of removing dead skin cells, thereby giving the skin a smoother, and youthful-looking texture.
Additionally, the exfoliating properties of activated charcoal helps unclog pores and reduce the appearance of blackheads and whiteheads. The result is a cleaner, clearer, and even-toned complexion, sooner than you can imagine.
MOISTURIZING PROPERTIES OF A CHARCOAL SOAP
Cold processed activated charcoal soap is believed to have a very high concentration of glycerine which is one of the best available moisturisers. When coupled with the moisture retaining property of charcoal, this becomes the most appropriate solution for fighting dryness and flakiness of the skin.
Charcoal soap is hence able to improve the elasticity and firmness of the skin, giving it a more youthful and radiant appearance overall.
DEEP CLEANSING PROPERTIES OF CHARCOAL SOAP
Activated charcoal soap is a natural absorbent capable of drawing out excess sebum, (the natural oil produced by the skin). This brightens the skin overall and reduces its oily appearance.
