Activated charcoal is currently the latest buzz among skin and hair care products and not just limited to that it is also been used for teeth whitening. We often think that charcoal is just charcoal, but there’s a difference between charcoal and activated charcoal. So, what’s the difference between charcoal and activated charcoal?
Charcoal is commonly used in the home. It’s used in water treatment systems, in vacuum cleaners, for creating works of art, and for cooking barbecues. Most of us are familiar with charcoal, and have used it at some time. Charcoal is versatile and is used for to remove chlorine from water, to remove odors, to draw with and to cook with
Whereas activated charcoal boasts beauty benefits for skin by drawing oil, dirt and other harmful substances from clogged pores due to its adsorption power. Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne.
Here are the 5 Benefits of Activated Charcoal
The charcoal’s porous nature also works on skin, unblocking pores by gathering oil and dirt, improving clarity and calming breakouts. Its most obvious use is in face-masks, but there are plenty of products available from sponges to cleansers to strips and soap bars. You can also mix activated charcoal capsules with aloe Vera gel to make your own mask.
As charcoal products are non-allergenic and also contain ingredients that are great for problem skin, such as salicylic acid and kaolin clay, beauty bloggers and magazine editors fully endorse activated charcoal for its curative properties, from helping with digestion to clearing up acne.
- SOOTHE AND HEAL BITES, CUTS AND SKIN IRRITATIONS
Whether you were stung by a bee or had a cut from the kitchen that’s become infected, activated charcoal can help speed the healing and relieve the symptoms. For minor skin ailments–including insect bites, stings, cuts, scrapes and minor infections–activated charcoal can be applied topically. The activated charcoal, when applied as a paste, helps absorb venom and infection. It will also bring down swelling and lessen pain. To make the paste: slowly add water to a bit of activated charcoal powder and mix until it is a spreadable consistency.
- DARK UNDERARMS
Activated charcoal is a popular remedy for whitening dark underarms. It exfoliates the area, sucks out impurities, lifts the dark dead skin cells and even neutralizes underarm odor!
- DETOXIFY SCALP
Did you know that hair absorbs toxins too? Since hair is very porous, you may have found your hair smells like cigarette smoke or food or any other substance you’ve been hanging around throughout your day. You can remove these toxins from your hair by adding a small amount of activated charcoal to your shampoo. Just make sure you rinse thoroughly to remove any black powder from your scalp.
- VOLUME TO HAIR
If you’re carrying around enough dirt and oil, your hair will start to sag and regular shampooing may not be getting it all out. In fact, hair can gain roughly 4 percent of its own weight in build-up from scalp oils, pollution and dry shampoo. Regular shampoos remove surface dirt, but activated charcoal will pull out even more. The other difference, and this is big, is that activated charcoal isn’t going to leave the residue some shampoos do, so your hair will feel lighter and have more volume.
Activated Charcoal is quite magical not just hair or skin it also helps detoxify your entire body. Here are some of our products with activated charcoal for a better hair & skin.
