Why We Love Carbon Skincare!

The Benefits Of Activated Carbon In Hair & Skincare

Introducing the gritty black ingredient that will purify your skin.

Everyone wants a fresh, glowing complexion. Who wouldn’t? Impurities, dirt and air pollution can all take a toll on our skin, making it appear dull and irritated. That’s where activated charcoal comes in. This all natural wonder, which is free of any chemicals, can help draw out impurities in your skin, creating beautiful results, including a fresher, healthier appearance and a radiant glow.

Anthea has been obsessed with charcoal products lately and the multiple benefits for the skin and internally, that we had to share it with our customers.

Here are some of the best ways to use activated charcoal for the health of your skin:

Make pores smaller and cleaner

Throughout the day, toxins from city and environmental pollution from the world around us clog our pores. When your pores aren’t clear, neither is your complexion. Activated charcoal when used in your skincare routine binds to and helps pull the dirt out of your pores, making them less visible (it’s the oil and dirt that makes them appear bigger). This leaves your face feeling fresh. Use Jelly Charcoal Cleanser and Creamy Charcoal Cleanser to remove the dead skin cells and experience an even deeper clean.

Take care of oily skin

Oily skin? Activated charcoal may be just the ingredient you need to balance things out. Used in our cleansers or mask, activated charcoal can pull the unwanted excess oils from your skin, leaving it smooth. You’ll want to do this with a combination of cleansers and masks.


Treat acne

Depending on the specifics of your acne and how severe it is, what’s causing it and what else is going on activated charcoal may be able to help. In soap form, it’s slightly gritty, which might provide just the gentle exfoliating you need. It will also absorb oils and toxins on and below the skin. You can use it as a spot treatment if you don’t want to use it on your whole face just think of it as a mini mask for your blemish.

Soothe and heal bites, cuts and skin irritations

The activated charcoal, when applied as a paste, helps absorb venom and infection. It will also bring down swelling and lessen pain. To make the paste: slowly add water to a bit of activated charcoal powder and mix until it is a spreadable consistency.
