Activated Charcoal

Posted by Rachel Minns on

Activated Charcoal is thought to be a miracle ingredient in skincare. It has many uses, but here are the main ones it is known for.

  • Reduces the size of pores.

Activated charcoal actually binds to dirt and pulls it out of the pores. This can make them visibly smaller leaving your face feeling fresher.
  • Balances oily skin.

Activated charcoal also pulls grease and oil from the skin and when you wash it away it the grease goes with it!

  • Treats acne.

In soap form, it is slightly gritty, which might provide the gentle exfoliating you need. It will also absorb oils and toxins on and below the skin.
