So What's the Deal with Activated Charcoal?

We are not sure if you've heard, but Activated Charcoal is a hot topic at the moment! Activated Charcoal has been proven to be more successful at removing impurities and toxins than traditional charcoal, making it beneficial to use in both bath and body products. That is exactly why we have made Onyx, an activated charcoal soap that will give your skin all the benefits it needs!

What is the difference between Activated Charcoal and Regular Charcoal?

Regular charcoal has been commonly used for many years in the home as a treatment to remove chlorine from water, for cooking and to remove odours. While activated charcoal is successful in these tasks as well, it is processed in a way that makes it more beneficial for use in medicine and cosmetics. Activated charcoal is created when oxygen is added at a high temperature in a steam activation process. This process increases the surface area of the charcoal, increasing its porosity and the ability to absorb chemicals, toxins and gases, making it more successful in the purifying process.

Benefits of Activated Charcoal

Because of its ability to remove toxins and impurities, activated charcoal is best suitable for oily to combination skin types. It is especially beneficial to those who suffer from breakouts and acne because the activated charcoal is able to absorb and remove excess oil, dirt and impurities from pores helping to reduce breakouts and acne. Charcoal also tends to be mildly exfoliating which helps to remove dead skin cells from your pores so that they stay clean and unclogged. Activated charcoal has even been used medically to remove toxins and poisons from the body!
