Posted on

We know you’ve definitely heard of Activated Charcoal and have seen the rise in skincare products that are using this ingredient, but do you know why?

Today we are going to be talking all things Charcoal and highlighting the top benefits of using skincare containing this special ingredient.

Charcoal wasn’t just a craze, it has been around for years, dating all the way back to Egyptian times. They often used Charcoal as a deodorising product.

A selection of our BARBER PRO sheet masks contain this highly beneficial product and will work in a number of ways for your skin.


1) Exfoliates and cleanses

Activated Charcoal is slightly gritty, so it is perfect to gently exfoliate your skin.

This means that any dead skin cells will be reduced when using a charcoal product, which naturally will increase the skins hydration too. Whilst exfoliating your skin, this ingredient also gets deep into your pores, cleansing it of any impurities and getting rid of any dirt that has built up.

As we all know, cleansing is a VITAL step in your daily skincare routine, so by including a charcoal product into this, it will be the best ingredient to consider for your cleansing step.

Pick our Face Putty or Foaming Cleansing Mask to use for a cleanser step.

If you do suffer from Acne, we know how hard it is to search for products that won’t irritate and will be effective.

Now, activated charcoal is the ingredient your skin will LOVE! It is an antibacterial and anti-fungal ingredient, working into your pores to stop bacteria from growing and to stop the pores from getting clogged. This will reduce acne breakouts and increase the healing process from acne.
