Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar Soap by Herbivore Botanicals
Bamboo Charcoal has been used for centuries in the East. The Japanese use it regularly for everything, from filtering and purifying drinking water to brushing their teeth. When used in skincare, activated Bamboo Charcoal does wonders to deeply cleanse and detoxify. Drawing impurities and toxins from deep within your pores with its powerful absorption properties, it gives an amazing deep clean while also naturally exfoliating. Bamboo Charcoal is gentle yet effective, and works especially well to clean and care for oily, combination, and blemish-prone skin types.
Activated Bamboo Charcoal: Activated Bamboo Charcoal has a lot to offer. First of all, it is extremely absorbent — its molecules are very porous, though smooth on skin, and great at catching all they come into contact with. Activated Charcoal (charcoal that is steamed at a high temperature), prior to use, has an extremely large surface area — one ounce of Activated Bamboo Charcoal can have a surface area of thousands of square feet. The incredible surface area and absorption power of the charcoal gives it the ability to purify all that it comes into contact with: air, water, and skin.
Tea Tree Essential Oil: Tea Tree Oil is derived from the leaves of the tea tree. When Tea Tree Oil is applied to the skin topically, it helps fight infections such as acne and fungal infections of the nail (onychomycosis). The chemicals in Tea Tree Oil kill bacteria and fungus, and reduce allergic skin reactions.
Bergamot Essential Oil: Bergamot Oil is a unique, sophisticated, sweet and tangy citrus oil. It also helps to balance the skin's oil production, making it very beneficial for combination/oily skin types.
Lather between hands with water, and apply generously to face and body. This soap is gentle enough to use every day.
