Activated charcoal is known for its ability to absorb and draw out oil from the skin. This makes charcoal a fantastic addition to soaps, scrubs, masks and more. At Good Horse Scents we use activated charcoal in soap and bath bombs/fizzies.
Activated charcoal, on the other hand, is most commonly used for medical, beauty or purification processes. To become “activated,” the charcoal goes through a high temperature steam activation process. This process increases its surface area, which increases the charcoal’s ability to absorb and filter. This makes activated charcoal the proper choice for medical and cosmetic use.In particular, activated charcoal is fantastic for oily skin. Its ability to absorb oil and dirt from pores leaves skin feeling balanced.
Dry skin folks - activated charcoal may be a little bit too drying.
Charcoal can create a gray lather and transfer color to a washcloth if a lot is used in a recipe. In our experience, I have not found charcoal soap stains washcloths permanently.
