Charcoal has cleansing properties that can help remove dirt, oils, and impurities.
Activated charcoal is getting more and more popular in skincare products these days, and there's a good reason for that.
Some research shows that activated charcoal can draw impurities from your body, which has led certain experts to believe it can do the same thing for your skin.
The theory is, that activated charcoal's potent drawing powers pull dirt, oils, and impurities to the skin's surface, so they can be removed more easily.
The texture of activated charcoal also provides a light exfoliating effect. And regular exfoliation can unclog pores, increase circulation, and even increase the production of collagen (among other awesome benefits).
