What is Activated Charcoal Powder used for?
Charcoal powder is very popular in the cosmetic industry and is generally used in face and body products to draw out excess oil, dirt and impurities from clogged pores, which makes it an incredible ingredient for those with oily or acne prone skin.
Due to its great absorption capacity and its ability to extract substances on the surface of the skin, charcoal powder can be incorporated into facial masks/cleansers or body products to assist with removing toxins or surplus sebum from the skin.
Charcoal powder is also loved for its natural colouring properties, and can be used to give a grey to black colour to soaps, bath bombs and various make-up products.
Due to its excellent toxins absorbing properties, activated charcoal powder can be found in a variety of oral health products, such as toothpaste and is believed to have teeth whitening properties.
