As a mom, washing my face morning and night happens about 50% of the time, but when I do it, I want it to be quick, easy and effective. Our detox charcoal face wash soap contains moisturizing and cleansing amounts of coconut oil and castor oil. While entire bar of soap is full of ingredients to clean and nurture your skin, the “secret”, but not so secret, ingredient is the activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is known to absorb large amounts of toxins, atoms and ions. This super absorbency and its ability to fight bacteria is why this soap is perfect for soothing blemishes and rashes on the skin to help with an even toned complexion. It can also help tighten your skin.
Livstrong.com explains “activated charcoal has high adsorptive powers, which means that it draws other elements into itself. Charcoal is activated through heat and exposure to steam and certain chemicals. This process causes the carbon to form enlarged “pores,” which are fissures and pockets in its surface. When it is exposed to contaminants, they literally become trapped in the carbon’s pores. Charcoal also has antibacterial properties that can help heal wounds. Activated carbon is used for everything from industrial water filtration to medicinal supplements.”

*Because my soap is hand-crafted and hand-cut in small batches, please allow for slight variations in design, color, scent and size between bars. Handmade soap tends to be softer than commercial soap and to extend the life of your soap, use a soap draining dish, keep it out of the water stream of your shower or sink and allow soap to dry between uses.
