Benefits of Activated Charcoal

  1. Activated charcoal is an excellent absorbent. It is made by heating the charcoal to high temperatures and oxidising the carbon inside it. This process makes the charcoal to absorb and cling to any thing that comes in contact with. Activated carbon soap pulls in dust and dirt from the skin and you can wash it away easily.
  2. Activated charcoal soap is a natural scrub. Its coarse nature makes it a brilliant exfoliant and it can remove the dead cells sticking to your skin, bringing out your new and fresh skin.
  3. It helps control acne, blackheads, eczema, blemishes, psoriasis and other skin problems. The sebum secreted by the sebaceous glands under the skin is responsible for moisturising your skin. If the skin is constantly exposed to dirt and smoke, the sebum secretion increases along with sweat production.

    This combination of sweat and oils hold on the dust and gives your that awful look. Activated charcoal soaps helps you clean the dust, sweat and excess sebum in the skin and give you a fresh skin.
  4. The most important advantage of activated charcoal soap is that it is suitable for any skin type. Be it oily or dry you can use it like your regular soap and even more, it takes only a less amount than your regular soap to clean up.

Earth Essentials has come up with two specific varieties in Activated charcoal soap. One being Activated charcoal & Aloe vera and the other being Activated charcoal & turmeric.

Aloe vera and turmeric have their own unique advantages when it comes to skin care. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and anti-septic, while aloe vera is a natural moisturizer.

Turmeric, one of the most abundant spices in India, is not being used in the brands we saw above, which makes Earth Essentials the only brand in the world that uses turmeric and activated charcoal, two of the most amazing ingredients to make a product for skin care. Turmeric carbon soap provides you overall protection for your skin.
