What is Activated Charcoal and why is it so effective for the skin?

Activated carbon is a type of carbon processed through a heat treatment that turns it into a highly porous material with a large surface area. Activated charcoal has been used for decades in medicine to treat poisoning and in the food industry to bleach sugar and alcohol. In recent years, activated charcoal has gained popularity in skin care due to its detoxifying and purifying properties.

Who can benefit from using activated charcoal?

Anyone can benefit from activated charcoal in their skincare routine. It is especially useful for people with oily, acne-prone skin, large pores, and those who live in areas with high levels of pollution. Activated charcoal helps remove dirt, excess sebum and impurities from the skin, leaving it cleaner and fresher.

How to use activated carbon?

Activated charcoal can be found in different skin care products such as face masks, soaps, cleansers, scrubs, and patches. It is important to read the product instructions before use, but in general, it is recommended to apply a small amount to damp skin and gently massage for a few minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.
