Made from: 100% coconut husks

Status: Conventional, not tested on animals

Activated charcoal powder is a fine, odourless, black powder that results from superheating natural sources of carbon, such as wood or coconut husks in our case. At the start of the production process, coconut husks are dried, crushed and then sieved before being fed into an 'activation' process involving heating the husks at high temperatures.

Also known as activated carbon, activated charcoal powder has many uses and benefits in skincare and personal care. In most cosmetic applications, this powder acts like a sponge that sticks to dirt, dust, grease, and oil making it a good deep cleanser. Because it helps collect all the dirt that are clogged in pores, it then leaves your skin with a clearer and fresher look.

Furthermore, activated charcoal powder also provides a gentle exfoliation and guards the skin from the harmful effects of commercialised beauty products. People with oily skin will have zero skincare problems, such as acne and blemishes, with activated charcoal powder as it has capabilities to keep excess oils.

Activated charcoal powder is an ideal product for use in creating DIY natural face masks. It is all natural without the need to add any harsh chemicals to your skin. For the charcoal masks, we recommend applying it once or twice a week. As it is known, activated charcoal powder is extremely potent and might overwhelm your skin especially for first-time users.

In haircare, activated charcoal powder can also be used to add more volume. Many of us may not know about this but hair tends to retain dirt and unseen particles. These unseen objects can cause the hair to look saggy and shapeless.

Regular shampoos may help wash away surface dirt but activated charcoal powder will do the job even better. Not only that it leaves your hair looking thick and fuller but it also makes it entirely free of dirt.

Although activated charcoal powder is believed to be beneficial in most skincare applications, it is best to perform a skin patch test first to prevent further complications. If it does not react with your skin (i.e. itchiness or redness), then it is possibly safe to use.
