Activated Charcoal and Its Benefits
Posted on 28 June 2018
Like coconut oil, activated charcoal is another seemingly simple ingredient that provides endless health and beauty benefits. It is a potent yet natural ingredient that rids your body of unwanted substances when ingested with water, traps and binds drugs and toxins together, absorbs chemicals and poisons, pulls dirt out and absorbs discolouration.
However, activated charcoal is not the same as charcoal from your BBQ grill or charred wood from fire. Activated charcoal usually consists of coconut shells, bamboo wood, olive pits, coal and other substances and is processed at very high temperatures to "activate" it. It is odourless and tasteless.
Activated charcoal pulls out excess oils and draws out dirt from your pores because it binds impurities, dirt, oils and toxins together, making it an amazing ingredient for a deep skin cleanse. Your pores get clogged overtime, and activated charcoal is a powerful super ingredient that will suck them up, and exfoliate at the same time, because of its slightly rough texture.
DISCOLOURATION AND DENTAL HEALTH
Activated charcoal absorbs plaque and other components that are responsible for staining your teeth. It helps in changing your mouth's pH levels, preventing cavities by killing bad bacteria and improves your dental health. When used regularly to brush teeth, teeth become noticeably whiter with use.
