What is activated charcoal and how does it help my skin?
Eastern and Middle Eastern cultures have used charcoal powder for thousands of years for its perceived health properties. Today, it has many common uses, including for personal cosmetics care as a cleanser, exfoliator and detoxifier for skin. Specifically, activated charcoal is not the same as the charcoal used for grilling out. It is an odorless black powder activated by heat, which may provide benefits to the skin. Specifically for skin, it may help remove impurities and excess oils.
