Unscented activated charcoal is a miracle of nature. It attracts other substances to its surface and holds them there. It adsorbs thousands of times its own weight in gases, heavy metals, poisons, and other chemicals; thus, it renders them ineffective and harmless. Used in soap, it's a detox powerhouse! It deeply cleanses and clears your skin, unclogs pores, removes impurities and dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin, resulting in supple, delicate and smooth skin.
