Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is a special type of fine, odourless, black powder made from materials such as wood and coconut shells, among others. The substance is ‘activated’ by high temperatures which change the chemical structure to create much smaller particles with more surface area.

HOW IT’S MADE?

Carbon-rich materials such as wood are burnt at very high temperatures to obtain charcoal (a nearly pure form of carbon). Once the charcoal is obtained, it is passed through a variety of processes in order to “activate” it. This includes treatment with oxygen, steam and carbon dioxide.

WHY DO WE USE IT?

Activated charcoal can adsorb thousands of times its own weight. This effectively cleanses the skin, unclogs pores, removes deeper impurities, and dead skin cells. The result is smooth, supple, and even-toned skin. Dirt, toxins, heavy metals, chemicals, and other poisons are attracted to the charcoal molecules and washed away.
