So what is Activated Charcoal? And what benefits would Activated charcoal is similar to normal charcoal – it begins with charcoal, but is super heated by gas to expand the porous surface of the charcoal, creating an increase in absorbancy. When added to soap it acts as an absorbant of toxins and impurities. When studied in the lab reports indicate that Activated Charcoal will absorb thousands of times its weight in impurities.
One thing about activated charcoal is that it has a large surface area equivalent to a 150,000 square foot field. This is the main reason why a small portion of activated charcoal is able to absorb large amounts of toxins, atoms and ions.
Does it help Acne? This super absorbency and its anti-bacterial properties are the main reasons why activated charcoal is the best ingredient for tackling acne, rashes and pimples on your skin. Your skin is a living organ which has pores. These pores and the skin’s permeable membrane allow bacteria, chemicals, and other toxins to pass in and out of your body. On the other hand, acne is caused by blocked pores, dirt and bacteria, existing on the surface of the skin. Please know we make no medical claims about this soap, other than the formula is designed to unblock pores, and reduce the conditions that foster acne.
