Charcoal has been used for centuries, the Egyptians used charcoal in many ways. The most popular ones were to preserve the bodies of the dead and blend for alluring eye makeup like Cleopatra. Activated charcoal was developed sometime between 1870 and 1920, it was widely used in hospitals and clinics for its ability to absorb impurities, infections, and toxins from the body. Used in many ways as a topical in salves, face masks, detox baths, deodorants, soaps, shampoos, eye makeup, and even mixed with water into a paste to be applied on the skin. Chances are you have used a charcoal product, noticeable by the deep rich color of this one ingredient. It is easily identified in items because of its ability to darken anything it is added to. Charcoal has become a star ingredient in popular natural health care in the last few years, and many brands now have a charcoal option available for their most popular products.

Making soaps with all-natural ingredients does not have to be boring or challenging, with items nature provides, we can achieve almost any color imaginable. If you are a quality over quantity person, then charcoal products may just be your new go-to item. On average one gram of charcoal is approximately 1000 square meters of surface area. This provides a gigantic amount of surface area to get down and do the dirty work better and with less effort than many other detoxifying agents available on the market today. Making this a perfect item for those with sensitive skin or jobs where they are regularly exposed to icky conditions. Gentle yet effective, suitable for your daily skincare routine. Charcoal bars can be used on specific areas that just need a little extra love, or just when you feel like you may need a little extra attention to your skin on a particular day. Most products in the bathroom have bold and complicated fragrances, leaving you covered in different blends of smells from your shampoo, body wash, lotions, and then topping it all off with the fragrance of laundry detergents and dryer sheets to the mix. It is nice to not be covered in a cacophony of fragrances that do not mix well together. Using fragrance-free soaps is always nice because when you are done washing, you are not covered in any fragrance other than a clean human. This helps your desired cologne or perfume last longer and stand out better if you choose to apply any.
