Buy Charcoal Soap For Your Skin
The benefits of charcoal for your skin
It seems counterintuitive to take an intensely black substance and apply it directly to your skin. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying the many benefits of this age old ingredient.
People have been using charcoal as a cleansing agent to remove toxins and bacteria for thousands of years. It should come as no surprise that the beauty industry has incorporated charcoal into many products from face masks to soaps to shampoos, and even toothpaste. So, let’s take a closer look.
What is activated charcoal?
We’re not talking about the same type of charcoal you use with your grill. Activated charcoal is made from carbon-rich materials like bamboo, coconut shells or peat that have been heated to extremely high temperatures to create a fine, black, odorless powder. The “activation” process strips the material of previously absorbed molecules which frees the substance to attract and bind with certain chemicals like toxins and impurities.
A mini magnet
When this super fine, powdery substance is used in beauty products, it acts like a mini magnet to remove dirt, oil, make-up from your hair and skin.
Results from charcoal may include:
Clearer skin, fewer breakouts, minimized pores, more balanced skin tone, a brighter, and less dull appearance. In addition to balancing oily or combination skin, charcoal infused hair products can help to reduce excess oil, mineral build-up and product build-up on the scalp and hair follicles. Some users also report less dandruff and itch when using charcoal hair care products.
Change up your routine
If you are looking to shake up your hair care routine or skin regimen, you may want to consider adding this age old ingredient.
At Shmutzies we have a coal acne bar. It is a detoxifying face and body cleansing bar. Throughout the day, toxins from the world around us clog our pores. When your pores aren’t clear, neither is your complexion. Activated charcoal when used on the face, helps pull the dirt out of your pores, making them less visible (it’s the oil and dirt that makes them appear bigger).
If you suffer from dry skin, use charcoal soap to replace harsher cleansers. For adults with mild acne, a charcoal cleanser can help prevent outbreaks. Shmutzies activated charcoal soap is super moisturizing and has tea tree oil for additional healing. Our activated charcoal is derived from 100% coconut shell.
To get your skin feeling and looking great, try adding activated charcoal to your skincare routine. Whether in a face mask or everyday acne bar, you will notice a remarkable difference in your skin almost immediately. Our ancestors got this one right, and you should listen to them!
