WHAT IS CHARCOAL?
Charcoal has been used for its purifying properties for centuries. It’s a micro-porous material that can help to draw out impurities. Our charcoal comes from bamboo plants that have been blasted in an oven at temperatures over 1,000°C!
HOW & WHERE IS OUR CHARCOAL SOURCED?
Our bamboo charcoal is farm-grown in the Himalayas. The bamboo is hand-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 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.
