The new buzz ingredient of the beauty industry is charcoal, it’s in our toothpastes, shampoos and now our skincare. Activated Charcoal is a form of charcoal which has been processed to have a high surface area for absorption.
The reason why we love it in our skincare products are because it absorbs the excess oils and dirt blocking our pores, for clearer and healthier skin. It’s proven that activated charcoal can absorb ten times its own weight in impurities, which is plus points for those with an oily t-zone!
