Benefits*: Activated bamboo charcoal helps to remove impurities from the skin. It's a fantastic cleanser for oily or blemish prone skin because the charcoal attracts bacteria from the surface of wet skin and washes it away. The soap's base oils moisturize and soften your skin without any surface build-up.
Scents: Activated charcoal soap is available in 3 natural scents + fragrance free - natural lavender, natural lemongrass, natural peppermint & tea tree and fragrance free.
Fragrance free is for those who prefer no scent at all. The benefits of activated charcoal are still there.
Lavender essential oil is a beautiful fragrance that has been shown to lower heart rate and blood pressure (yes, science). It's also a nice skin tonic because it's anti-bacterial.
Lemongrass essential oil is so refreshing and it, too, is a natural antioxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Medicine doesn't have to smell bad when it's Mother Nature's.
Peppermint & tea tree will wake you up with its wahoo minty fragrance while the tea tree oil is a great blemish treatment because it's good at killing the bacteria responsible for blemishes along with all of its other amazing anti-microbial properties. (Carson, C.F., Hammer, K.A. & Riley, T.V. (2006). Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil: a Review of Antimicrobial and Other Medicinal Properties. Clinical Microbiology Reviews, 19 (1), 50-62.)
Every home medicine cabinet should have a bottle of Tea Tree oil (from the health food store, don't overpay for a brand, it doesn't matter) to treat all kinds of 'bugs'. The science for tea tree oil is off the hook. It kills pretty much everything and one of its major targets is the bacterium that causes acne. Science, yah.
We have customers who use our Peppermint & Tea Tree charcoal soap instead of Accutane with phenomenal success. These children either avoided or ended Accutane treatments altogether. It's the tea tree oil and possibly the charcoal. HOWEVER, until we conduct our clinical trials, their results are anecdotal. Nevertheless, before putting a child through Accutane and it's hideous side effects, please try our soap first. The only side effects with our soap are either a) the cystic acne clears up completely (for real) or b) it doesn't help at all. No other side effects, period. End of.
Caution: It's charcoal soap. Rinse thoroughly before using white bath linens because they will become gray-ish. We still get fluffy white towels out of the washer when we forget, but we can't guarantee that you'll have the same experience.
