With so many products out on the market today, you might not know EXACTLY how each and every anti-aging, brightening, hydrating, powerhouse blend of ingredients work. Never fear! BeautyStat is here to help you better understand some of the most important and good-for-your-skin ingredients out today. But right now, we’re talking about Charcoal.
Charcoal is one of the oldest medicinal ingredients known to man. Used since ancient times by the Egytians to cure intestinal ailments and clean the air of odor. Over time, its properties have been expanded to include many other uses.
Activated charcoal is charcoal treated with oxygen to make it porous and able to capture impurities. In its role as a detoxifier, activated charcoal filters our water and air; it binds to toxins to allow them to be flushed from the body.
Beauty of Activated Charcoal
Now you can find activated charcoal in a variety of beauty products. These products maximize the absorbtion properties of activated charcoal to create new uses for an age-old ingredient. Activated charcoal is amazing for whitening your teeth, lifting skin impurities and makeup, and is used as an acne treatment. Looking for eco-friendly products to round out your skin-cleansing system? Add organic and naturally activated charcoal to your beauty regimin.
Take advantage of this time-tested ingredient to wash away impurities. Japanese binchotan activated charcoal, produced in the Kishu region of Japan, is known for its purity — and is added to many unique beauty items to maximize the properties of activated charcoal.
Try cleansing masks and soaps that smell fresh and leave your skin glowing. You can find Morihata Binchotan Toothbrushes treated with activated charcoal to naturally whiten your teeth.
