Skincare Ingredient Focus: Charcoal

Charcoal has become so very trendy in the last year and I'm beyond obsessed. Charcoal is great for the skin because it draws out impurities, excess oil, and all of the nasty breakout-causing bacteria.


Oh, and I’m sure you’re wondering about this. The difference is that activated charcoal is treated with oxygen, which makes the molecule bigger and the surface becomes more porous. So, activated is really the way to go because it absorbs all of the nasty things we don’t want just that much better than regular charcoal. So, we want to find skincare products with ACTIVATED charcoal!
