This activated charcoal powder, derived from Bamboo, is 100% natural. After the charcoal particles are activated by high-temperature steam and once they undergo the process of washing, recovery, and drying, they are ground into a pure, porous powder.
Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder is widely used as a topical body treatment that captures bodily toxins in its minuscule pores and eliminates them. Through the process of adsorption, harmful elements bind themselves to the powder and thereby prevent toxins from being reabsorbed into the body.
Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder is known for its natural deep cleansing and exfoliating properties, which allow it to gently remove dead cells without dehydrating the skin. A gentle yet effective cleanser for all skin types – especially for skin that is prone to acne – it is ideal for blackhead removal. Furthermore, its anti-fungal, antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-microbial activities along with its intensive moisturizing properties make it especially beneficial for use as a body deodorant and in soap making.
By facilitating the body’s reparation of cellular damage, Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder effectively relieves the discomforts of rashes and helps to slow down the appearance of aging skin, thus promoting a rejuvenated appearance. Used in hair care, Bamboo Charcoal cleanses and absorbs excess oils without removing the naturally occurring essential hair oils. Due to its ability to absorb moisture, it makes an ideal dehumidifier that simultaneously removes unpleasant room odors.
Shelf Life: When stored properly in a cool, dark place away from moisture, Activated Bamboo Charcoal Powder may have a shelf life of up to 5 years.
