I have had the most return customer testimonies about this activated charcoal soap! Parents, teenagers, adults with problem skin, and my own sons. I didn’t truly realize the powerful benefits of this powder after researching and reading about, until people started coming back for the soap. I had learned that activated charcoal helped with acne by pulling impurities and toxins from the skin, and could be use as wraps to pull poisons from the body. But, I hadn’t a need for that as yet. I thought that I could use it for my teenage son, who was going through puberty. He used the activated charcoal soap and was please, we saw great results. His skin started to clear, because the pimples began to shrink, the redness left his face. This process didn’t happen after one use, but it didn’t take very long for him to exclaim “Mama, your soap works!” That was the endorsement I needed to inspire me to make more.
I formulated this soap with just the skin loving oils to clean and moisten the skin, as the oils assist the charcoal in its cleansing phase. I did not add any fragrance, not wanting to aggravate present irritated areas.
Home-made soap should not be allowed to sit in water, for this will cause excessive melting. Place soap on a good draining soap dish or a sponge to allow soap to dry between uses.
