Activated Charcoal Skin Benefits

Activated charcoal has been popping up all over in skin care and soaps for a quite some time now. My interest was piqued and I began researching the touted skin benefits in late 2019. The research I compiled, collectively, was rather impressive.

Did you know, activated charcoal effectively cleanses the skin by unclogging pores, removing deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells? With consistent use, the end result is smooth, supple, even-toned skin. Who doesn’t want that? Imbedded dirt, toxins, heavy metals, chemicals and other unsavories are attracted to the charcoal molecules and are effectively washed away. Wow! All that, from one natural ingredient, is pretty impressive to me! Naturally, I began experimenting with activated charcoal, in soaps and a face mask.

Cedar Hill Botanicals now offers Handcrafted Artisan Soaps with activated Charcoal in our shop. I’m still experimenting with the face mask recipe. I embrace the trial and error method for success.

Rest assured, all of Cedar Hill Botanicals handcrafted products are cruelty free. The only testing subjects are humans. Specifically, me and my husband. Our fur babies just watch us and I’m sure they are quite amused on a daily basis around our house.

Be sure to browse our line of Artisan Soaps in the shop. You will find something for everyone!

For now, stay safe & be well.

Best regards,
