BENEFITS OF CHARCOAL

Charcoal is the beauty trend of the moment, but what makes this wonder ingredient so great for your skin?

WHAT IS CHARCOAL?

Charcoal has been used for its purifying properties for centuries. It’s a micro-porous material, which means it’s also super-absorbent and can help to draw out impurities. Our charcoal comes from highly sustainable bamboo plants that have been blasted in an oven at temperatures over 1000°C!

HOW & WHERE IS OUR CHARCOAL SOURCED?

Our bamboo charcoal comes from the Himalayan foothills. We work with an institute of biotechnology research to expertly farm charcoal in a way that optimises the local sustainable resources. The bamboo is sustainably harvested after four years, by which point it has grown an incredible amount. Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world, making it a very sustainable and environmentally friendly resource.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING CHARCOAL?

Many Asian civilizations, including India, Japan, South Korea, China and Taiwan, have been using charcoal for centuries. The Japanese traditionally use charcoal for dietary detoxing, believing charcoal to absorb waste materials from the digestive system. It’s also commonly used as an air, water or oil purifier. In beauty, charcoal has been undergoing a strong buzz thanks to its purifying properties. You’ll often find it in toothpastes and deep-cleansing skincare for oily skin.
