There’s been a significant amount of hype around charcoal, especially activated charcoal, an ingredient that you can find in all kinds of skincare products from anti-acne cleansers, face masks to even dental care products. But with so much misinformation in the beauty industry, let’s break down all the information you’re going to need about charcoal and beauty products.
Charcoal, or activated charcoal, is made up of wood, coconut, coal or peat. Although this pitch black material happens to be one of the trendiest at the moment, it has actually been around for a long time. In fact, it has long been an essential component in emergency rooms and hospitals where it is used to treat things like drug overdoses as well as alcohol poisoning. It does its job by stopping toxins from entering our bloodstream.
The use of activated charcoal in beauty products is actually quite new. Charcoal is not metabolized or absorbed by the body, which means activated charcoal is not likely to cause any skin allergies or have any long term disadvantages. If you happen to be plagued with breakouts and want to try something new, you might want to get your hands on a charcoal skincare products like the ones offered by Shinkafa including Shinkafa’s Anti-Frizz Detangling Charcoal Shampoo, Shinkafa’s Face Masque, Shinkaf’s Body Wash with Charcoal .
Activated Charcoal works like a magnet that binds to oil, bacteria and dirt. It sticks to the oil and dirt in the pores that ultimately gets washed away as you rinse the charcoal away. Since toxins get attached to the activated charcoal, it becomes effective as a detoxifier and a cleanser. Moreover, activated charcoal is 100% natural and won’t contaminate your hair and skin with toxic chemicals.
The use of activated charcoal and related skincare products comes with a host of beauty benefits and a minimal chance of causing harm to your skin. It can add volume to your hair as it pulls out way more surface dirt from your hair than any average shampoo is capable of. Moreover, it does not leave the residue that many haircare products do and hence will have your hair feeling more voluminous and light.
Activated Charcoal is also capable of treating acne. It absorbs toxins and oils from the skin while also providing gentle exfoliation. Moreover, it can make your pores smaller by pulling out the dirt effectively and leaving your face feeling smooth and fresh. When used as part of face masks, activated charcoal effectively makes the pores seem much smaller by getting rid of the dirt and oil. If you’re feeling especially adventurous and want to give your skin something you’ve never tried before – get your hands on some of Shinkafa’s charcoal products like Shinkafa’s Face Masque, Shinkafa’s charcoal shampoo and charcoal body wash.
