Charcoal used to be what you could expect from Santa if you were a naughty little kid, but now it's a luxurious beauty ingredient. What makes it so perfect for use in skincare?
Charcoal is a great detoxifier. It can absorb 100 to 200 times its own weight making it perfect for removing harmful chemicals from your skin.
A build up of dirt and toxins on your skin and in your pores can make your pores appear larger and eventually lead to acne. This is especially true when you live in a city and your skin deals with air pollution on a daily basis. When charcoal is used on your skin it binds to these toxins and dirt, which are then washed away after you wash off the charcoal.
Many cleansing ingredients today on the beauty market are not natural and end up leaving behind chemical residue, which can irritate sensitive skin. Because charcoal is completely natural and free of harmful chemicals, it's a great option for those looking to cleanse easily irritated skin.
