Activated Charcoal

Activated Charcoal

Fact File: 

Activated Charcoal

WHat is it for:

Charcoal helps to detoxify pores and exfoliate the skin to result in a brighter and clear complexion.

When to use:

PM – 1-2 times per week

Active ingredient benefits:

Adsorbing properties

    • Activated charcoal has pores in which molecules can be adsorbed. This means dirt and environmental stressors on the skin adsorb to the surface of the charcoal, to then be rinsed away and removed. It also acts as a magnet to attract and draw impurities from your pores.

Physical Exfoliator 

When applied to the skin and rinsed away the charcoal particles exfoliate the skin lifting away dead skin cells and dirt to prevent build-up in pores to help prevent future breakouts.

Ingredient origin:

Carbon-rich material that’s been treated with oxygen at a very high temperature, e.g. Himalayan Bamboo

Works well with:        

Salicylic Acid

Time to see results:

Within a few days of use, or even possibly instantly you may start to see results from Activated Charcoal.

Impact on sun sensitivity:

Activated charcoal has no impact on increasing sun sensitivity. However, we would still advise applying an SPF every day to protect your skin from UV damage and avoid potentially undoing the positive effects of your Clear Skin journey.
