What you might not know about activated charcoal will make you love our Charcoal Bar Soap!
Everyone is talking about activated charcoal, and you can find it in all kinds of products because of its versatility; but this incredible ingredient is nothing new. Its unique properties were used as early as the 1700s, and it has since been used in many applications.
What is activated charcoal?
Activated charcoal is essentially pure carbon—the natural element you learned about in fifth grade chemistry. Typical charcoal on the market is derived from slow-cooked wood. It gets “activated” by a process in which the cooked wood gets reheated at very high temperatures in the presence of natural gases such as oxygen found in the air. Young Living’s charcoal, however, is sourced from coconut shells/husks instead of wood, making it a more sustainable source.
The neat thing about charcoal is that once it gets activated, its structure turns into a very intricate and porous surface, so much so that it’s an amazing adsorbent—meaning it can bind molecules to itself very effectively. Utilizing these absorbent properties, we put together a unique formula using coconut-derived, naturally activated charcoal, along with other amazing ingredients that make the best charcoal soap bar ever created!
Our Charcoal Bar Soap’s naturally derived formula includes powerful skin-cleaning agents such as activated charcoal; moisturizing ingredients that include olive oil, wolfberry oil, jojoba oil, and aloe extract; and the bright, fresh scent of our Orange Blossom essential oil blend.
