Charcoal doesn’t seem like a skincare ingredient. Or at least if it was, it would leave you looking like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. Well, activated charcoal is actually a wonderful skin cleanser and we promise it won’t transform you into a chimney sweep. It is one of the main ingredients in the Nathalie Bond Revive Soap Bar. Unsurprisingly, it is what gives the soap its beautiful dark tone too.
Here are five reasons we love to use activated charcoal:
It is a totally natural ingredient, so no hidden nasties here. The charcoal we use is the best available and is made from hardwood trees in British FSC certified woodland in the south of England.
Toxins bind to it, which means it does an excellent job of deeply cleansing skin. It is not absorbed by the skin; instead it draws out dirt, bacteria and chemicals from the surface, unclogging pores and leaving skin feeling refreshed. This is why it is a popular face mask ingredient.
It also draws out excess oils from the skin, so if you’re prone to oily patches, wash your face with the Revive Soap Bar and let the activated charcoal work its magic. Soothes Injuries
Activated charcoal’s purifying credentials mean it is sometimes used to deal with poisonings. Bee stings and minor cuts can benefit from the application of this gentle ingredient.
In soap, activated charcoal can be a little gritty which helps to dust off dirt or any dead skin cells. As the grittiness is less abrasive than chunky sea salts, it the perfect exfoliator for those with sensitive skin.
For the Revive Soap Bar, we have paired activated charcoal with peppermint and eucalyptus essential oils to create an extra energising experience.
