Cleansing Charcoal Soap
Cleansing Charcoal Soap is a botanical bar soap crafted with purifying activated charcoal, which acts like a magnet to remove toxins from the skin. The beneficial binding action makes it a formidable cosmetic cleanser as it binds to toxins to purify pores.
The essential oils in our soaps potently modulate odour-causing bacteria without disrupting the protective barrier of the skin. Commercial bar soaps contain harsh surfactants that disrupt the structure of the skin, which causes dryness, irritation, and inflammation.
Texture: An absolute pleasure to use, it feels silky soft on the skin - not greasy but moisturising and gentle. The charcoal is blended into the soap with cacao butter, golden jojoba oil, and virgin coconut oil, adding natural moisture to the skin. The aroma is fresh and relaxing - perfect for evening showers.
Use: Excellent for a hand and nail scrub and for gently washing armpits and private areas that require extra attention. I personally it on my face 1-2 a week along with the recommended Best Skin Ever cleansers.
Organic Ingredients: Activated Charcoal, Theobroma cacao (Cacao), Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba), Cocos nucifera (Coconut), Saponified Olea europaea (Olive), Backhousia citriodora (Lemon Myrtle), Cymbopogon martini (Palmarosa), Citrus paradisi (Grapefruit), Cymbopogon citratus (Lemongrass), and Pogostemon cablin (Patchouli).
Activated Charcoal – This cleansing carbon acts like a magnet to remove toxins from the skin. The beneficial binding action makes it a formidable cosmetic cleanser as it binds to toxins in pores. This black powder reveals refreshed skin as it purifies pathogens and cleanses complexions.
Cacao Butter (Theobroma cacao) – Our certified-raw, heirloom cacao butter is as beneficial as it is delicious. Sweet, buttery cacao infuses the skin with rejuvenating antioxidants and smoothing moisture.
Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) – Glorious, golden jojoba nourishes and conditions thirsty skin. Jojoba has unparalleled ability to moisturise the skin, balance oil production, deep clean pores, and create long-lasting conditioning effects that soften skin to perfect silk. It is packed antioxidants and all soluble forms of vitamin E!
Saponified Olive Oil (Olea europaea) – Saponified olive oil captures all of the nourishing, moisturising properties of olive oil while enhancing the oil’s ability to clean the skin, hair, and scalp. Saponification is a chemical reaction that occurs when the oil is treated with a highly alkaline solution. Fats are hydrolysed before combining with alkali to form natural glycerin, a softening agent. This creates a soap with a very low pH. Saponified olive oil is said to increase skin’s porousness to help the skin to release toxins and absorb moisture.
Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera) – Our pure virgin coconut oil satiates skin, offering magnificent moisture and resilience. Coconut oil smoothes the appearance of fine lines and is a protector for the skin’s moisture barrier.
Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil (Backhousia citriodora) – Zesty, zingy lemon myrtle essential oil is lemonier than lemon. Also known as Sweet Verbena Tree, the leaves and young branches of the lemon myrtle tree are steam distilled in Australia. A little goes a long way with this cheerful, clarifying oil, which is splendid for clearing stagnant air, sedentary energy, and sluggish skin. Beyond its uplifting cheer, it contains serious amounts of citral (95%!) along with neral and geranial. Lemon myrtle is magnificent at expelling underarm odours.
Palmarosa Essential Oil (Cymbopogon martini) – Pleasant palmarosa is distilled from a tropical, fragrant grass resulting in an aromatic oil that smells like a lemony-geranium-rose and is simply splendid for the nose! This formidable skin rejuvenator is packed with beneficial botanical compounds. This potent oil tones and rejuvenates the skin. It is used to support radiant skin and to achieve a balance between oiliness and dryness
Grapefruit Essential Oil (Citrus paradisi) – Cleansing, tightening grapefruit refreshes the skin while toning the appearance and texture of the skin.
Lemongrass Essential Oil (Cymbopogon citratus) -This lively essence distilled from a tropical grass is effervescent in its ability to animate mind, emotions and spirit. If one is feeling fatigued or foggy in the morning, this physically and psychologically invigorating essence is the perfect way to start the day by inhaling, showering, or bathing. It is a terrific toning oil for the skin’s connective tissue, muscle-melting massages, aiding athlete’s feet, and stimulating sluggish skin areas.
Patchouli Essential Oil (Pogostemon cablin) – Patchouli is well known as a fragrant oil often associated with the ‘hippie movement’ of the 1960s. As natural as the 1960’s movement was, the patchouli of that era was often synthetic. Pure patchouli is actually more sacred and ancient than one might realise, having been used as a natural deodorant and skin tonic throughout Asia for hundreds of years. Patchouli is used to regulate sweat, absorb excess oil, and soothe skin. Passionate patchouli has the added bonus of being an aromatic attractant.
