The statement – making material certainly sounds unusual, but there’s more to charcoal than meets the eye. Known to attract toxins and other particles, it’s long been used in emergency medicine when a patient ingests poison, to stop it being absorbed into the bloodstream.
It’s thought that charcoal may have a similar benefit for the skin by drawing out dirt, oil and impurities for a clearer and smoother complexion.
While charcoal can feel rough or abrasive in block form, don’t worry about it being too harsh on skin – it;s typically ground down into a fine powder for use in personal care products.
This RE9 Advanced charcoal soap for men is a blessing for their tough skin and contains activated charcoal powder derived from bamboo. It’s balanced by aloe vera leaf juice to moisturise and soothe, along with an invigorating scent of spicy turmeric and bergamot.
Live well. Cass xx
