What Are The Benefits Of Charcoal Black Soap?
Charcoal Black Soap has been making a splash in the world of skincare in recent years, and for good reason! Charcoal’s ability to absorb toxins, chemicals, and unpleasant odors has long been known to practitioners and the general public alike.
Adding activated charcoal to beauty and body products is a fantastic way to absorb and draw out oils and dirt stuck in your pores. At Edens Garden, we decided to harness this power by including activated charcoal in our cold-processed natural bar soap. Our Charcoal soap also includes Lavender essential oil, adding a subtle floral aroma and anti-inflammatory properties.
What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is charcoal soot that has been treated to become more sponge-like in texture. In order to become “activated,” the charcoal goes through a high-temperature steam-activation process. This process opens up the carbon structure, thereby making the charcoal highly porous, which increases its ability to absorb into the skin.
Top Benefits Of Using Charcoal Soap
Lifts and Removes Impurities: Activated charcoal draws out micro-particles like bacteria, chemicals, and dirt to the surface of the skin, which is then washed off and rinsed down the drain. It has a proven ability to absorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances. Your skin is left feeling soft and supple rather than tight and dry.
Absorbs Deeper Than Conventional Cleansers: Typical cleansers tend to contain surfactants that serve only to remove surface dirt and oil. This is generally done through the use of synthetic detergents that strip the skin of surface oils but can’t necessarily reach into the pores. Activated Charcoal, on the other hand, can draw out dirt and impurities from deep within the skin. Over time, the build-up of toxins and grime can cause your pores to become larger and more noticeable. By pulling and clearing the pores, Charcoal Soap can shrink their appearance over time.
Ideal for All Skin Types: Activated charcoal is fantastic for oily skin due to its ability to absorb oil and dirt. While it extracts the excessive oil from oily skin, it also moisturizes and nourishes for those with dry skin. Furthermore, charcoal’s ability to soothe redness and irritated skin makes it ideal for sensitive skin types as well!
Gently Exfoliates: In addition to lifting away dirt and grime, our Charcoal Soap also whisks away dead skin. This exfoliating action help effectively clears skin blemishes and reduces the size of pores. When skin is exfoliated, it allows all the benefits of moisturizers (like our Body Oils) and serums (find our DIY serum here!) to be effectively absorbed. Exfoliating the entire body leaves your skin fresh and smooth from head to toe.
Our Charcoal Soap Contains Lavender: On top of the remarkable cleaning action of activated charcoal, the Charcoal natural bar soap also incorporates the highly versatile, Lavender essential oil. Not only does Lavender bring calmness and restoration to the mind, but it’s packed with soothing properties and antioxidants that support healthy skin. So lather up and bring on the soapy goodness!
