Why you need activated charcoal

Activated charcoal is having a big moment right now. What is so special about the black powder? Well, in general activated charcoals can soak up a thousand times their own weight in chemicals and poisons. During use it basically pulls toxins away, making it an environment friendly remedy for everyday harmful bacteria.

On the other hand, if too much is taken, it can disrupt your ability to absorb important vitamins and minerals. We love it as an addition to our daily beauty routine.

I discovered it for my shower routine in bar form – the charcoal scrub soap from Maroma sweeps away bacteria and pollutants from the skin surface. At the same time, the nourishing blend of organic coconut oil and the creamy Kokum butter (similar to Shea Butter) helps to pamper your skin, leaving it soft and happy.

In case you would like to experience the real deal, the bamboo charcoal powder will give you a deep cleanse, helping you to get rid of dead skin particles.
