There are many uses for Activated Charcoal, and it is used in all different products including toothpaste and deodorant, but let’s look specifically at how this powerhouse ingredient offers amazing SKINCARE benefits!

Activated charcoal powder is a black odorless powder that adsorbs thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances! Because of it’s porous surface, activated charcoal draws out impurities through the process of adsorbtion (not to be confused with absorption.) Because toxins stick to activated charcoal, it makes a highly effective deep cleanser and detoxifier, which explains why it has become so popular in the world of skincare.

Skincare benefits of using Activated Charcoal:

•Smaller pores
•Balance oily skin
•Treat acne
•Eliminate blackheads
•Deep cleanse
•Gentle exfoliation
•Renewed, smooth and radiant skin
Effective at treating body odor
•Soothe and heal bites, cuts, poison ivy & more

Activated Charcoal is ͏An͏t͏i͏b͏a͏c͏t͏e͏r͏i͏a͏l and Antifungal

Activated charcoal has been proven effective at getting rid of infections, E. Coli and staph. It inhibits bacteria and fungus in skin and clogged pores from growing, therefore helping heal acne and skin disorders like psoriasis.

Struggle with oily skin?

Activated Charcoal is your new best friend! Because of it’s adsorbant properties leaving skin clog-free, your pores focus less on producing oils for ridding impurities from pores. With continued use of activated charcoal, over time pores may appear and become smaller, therefore major oil production is no longer needed.

My favorite products with Activated Charcoal?

Charcoal Facial Bar is my favorite Face Wash:

•Clarifies pores and balances skin’s natural oils
•Gently detoxifies impurities for an improved complexion
•No tight & stripped feeling or greasy residue
•Not drying (If your face is very dry, you may prefer adding the Gentle Bar into your routine for daily use and using the charcoal a few times a week)
•Cost effective! These facial bars last forever! I have had the same set of bars for a year and a half and they are still huge!


My skin has never been so happy and clear! To see my full skincare routine, see Skincare.
