Activated charcoal and soap – it seems that these two concepts contradict each other. However, it is not. Activated charcoal is often used in the formulas of homemade and therapeutic soaps. After all, as we found out above, coal draws out all toxins and pollution. Soap with charcoal is often advised for those who suffer from acne. And many who tried, confirm that acne is much easier, almost passes.
Soap with activated charcoal does not harm the skin, it can be used without fear, although some are confused by the black color of the detergent. Coal soap can be bought from those who cook soap on their own, or make it yourself. The recipe is simple: powder of activated charcoal is added to the usual base composition. You can melt the usual baby soap and add the powder there, forming a new briquette of soap.

Activated charcoal is very well known for cosmetic use in Japan, as it takes the dirt out of the skin and increases its cleanliness. Instead here in Italy it was difficult to find it. So I did it! I needed the activated charcoal in powder, but, turning the various shops, they all reconfirmed “The coal in powder?” “I’ve never heard it ….” with a crooked face. In the end I got the idea to get it with a mortar pulverizing the tablets of a food supplement that I took to the pharmacy.
I could also produce it as monotonous gray but I like the zebra pattern. I do not have big problems with pimples and inflammation. However you have a more balanced skin cleansing and you never destroy your health.
The modification of vegetable charcoal soap. I added honey and cinnamon. The gray part is with coal, the white part is neutral, the orange part is with acacia honey and the brownish part is with cinnamon. In addition to the effect of charcoal, honey makes the skin smoother and cinnamon works as anti-pimples and anti-blackheads. At least that way
Let’s see their work over time!
