Charcoal Range

The Charcoal Range

Who would have thought that something as simple as activated charcoal would rule our bathroom shelves because of its cleansing and skin-purifying power? But that’s exactly what it’s done. It’s become the best friend for a guy’s skin and we just discovered it a few years back! We’ll go into more details but first, what exactly is activated charcoal, and how on earth does something like that do wonders for our skin?

Let’s start with the complex part first. Charcoal is said to be activated when it is heated at a high temperature (around 800-1000°C) in the presence of an activating agent like steam or carbon dioxide.

This burning process dehydrates the charcoal and creates tiny pores on the charcoal's surface, making it highly adsorbent and hence the term “Activated Charcoal”.

Now, let's talk about the interesting part. Activated charcoal has the super power to go 5X deeper than regular cleansing agents and has 10X more adsorption power that pulls dirt and skin impurities better than anything else. But, it’s not just limited to that, there’s more to it. Here are a few more benefits of activated charcoal for you.

Soaks Up Excess Oil

Oily skin is the result of excess sebum production in the internal layers of the skin. It plays a crucial role in protecting and maintaining a moisture balance on your skin, but too much sebum can clog the pores, causing multiple problems, like acne and pimples. Activated charcoal helps fight the excess oil on your skin and allow it to keep breathing.

Fights Blemishes and Acne

We’ve already established how activated charcoal helps clear the excess oil on your skin. When you apply charcoal-infused products on your skin, it even helps clear blackheads and reduces the recurrence of acne because of a cleaner environment it creates. So if you and your acne haven't been getting along, it's time to take the charcoal route.

Prevents Breakouts

Charcoal is naturally great when it comes to gently exfoliating your skin. It removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and makes sure your pores aren’t clogged. All this keeps your skin super clean, and hence you’re less likely to experience breakouts.

You get the idea how skincare around charcoal products works. In fact, back in the old days, when mainstream skincare products weren't a thing, people used activated charcoal for health and beauty purposes.

Cut to the present day, charcoal-infused products have gained a prominent spot on supermarket shelves. You can get them at the click of a button. Let’s look at some of the options you have:

Charcoal Face Wash For Men: deeply cleanses and detoxifies your skin of all the grime that air pollution causes for a refreshed and even-toned skin. It pulls out the impurities from your skin and gives it a clean and fresh look.
