Charcoal is the Secret Ingredient for a Purifying Beauty Routine

Known as the “black diamond,” charcoal has been prized for its purification abilities for centuries in Egypt and ancient China.

Why Is Charcoal Popular in Beauty?

Although charcoal has been used for many purposes throughout history, purifying “activated charcoal” has recently taken the health and beauty world by storm with trending products such as charcoal masks.

Detoxifying, absorptive and enriching, activated charcoal is proven to draw out impurities while also giving a boost to skin and hair.
