I have a number of naturally-minded friends who have raved about activated charcoal for different purposes, but I still hadn't given it a try until recently.
What makes activated charcoal so useful is that it draws toxins – attracting out of and away from the body. In fact, it can even be used in gas masks to prevent chemical poisoning and to purify water.
It turns out, this toxin-drawing property also makes activated charcoal beneficial for skin care! I got to see the benefits firsthand when my family used a few different kinds of charcoal soap from SoapBox soaps.
Clean Pores with Charcoal Soap
Soothes acne. I don't struggle with acne all that much anymore, aside from the occasional blemish – but a lot of people find that charcoal soap helps clear up breakouts like no other! Try it if you're looking for a natural treatment for acne. I do have to keep on top of blackheads in my skincare routine, however, and when I washed my face with the Black Bar Soap from SoapBox, it really kept my skin clean and exfoliated perfectly – I had clean pores but it didn't irritate my skin. Perfect! I just used the bar directly on my face.
Super Cleansing Hand Soap
My husband get super dirty throughout the day at work, and works around ag chemicals – which kind of terrifies me, to be honest! I feel good knowing that he's washing up with a soap that has toxin-drawing properties. And he doesn't find it overly “girly.” 🙂
SoapBox: Changing The World
SoapBox doesn't just have awesome products: they're also on a mission to change the world! I love supporting companies that build giving into their business model: here are a few ways SoapBox Soaps is doing that!
- For every bar purchased, they give a bar of soap to a child in need.
- For every body wash purchased, they donate a supply of vitamins to someone in need.
- Every liquid hand soap purchased supplies a 1 month supply of water to those in need.
I couldn't be prouder to support the mission SoapBox is on.
