Activated Charcoal Detox soap is great for sensitive skin conditions such as eczema. It can help detox the skin, remove toxins, excess oil, and bacteria. It allows the skin to feel clean without the use of harsh chemicals and is made by processing a high-carbon material at a high temperature and then “activating” it with hot air or steam. It’s large surface area allows it to absorb toxins, which is why activated charcoal in soap theoretically binds to dirt and oil on the skin and helps clear out pores. This makes activated charcoal a fantastic addition to soaps, scrubs, masks and more.
