Activated Charcoal Detox
Activated charcoal is a must-have in any medicine cabinet because of its adsorption abilities, limited side effects, and short list of people who should not use it due to existing conditions. Activated charcoal is very porous allowing toxins and other chemicals to bind to it. This makes it a very effective teeth whitener, air and water filter, and mold remediation ingredient. It is also useful when taken orally for ailments such as bloating/gas, hangover, accidental ingestion, and digestive upset.
External use of activated charcoal can be just as beneficial to the body. Detoxification baths are a popular use. In addition, simple masks can be made from activated charcoal. When applied to underarms, skin ailments, bug bites, and areas of odor issues it can be a potent detoxifier.
One of the most practical uses for activated charcoal is as a skin cleanser. Scrubs and soaps made from activated charcoal make a powerful cleansing regimen.
It has the ability to deep clean without drying, chemically attracting and locking in toxins (from indoor and outdoor pollution) that can cause breakouts and skin irritation. It washes them away without breaking down the skin’s naturally protective mantle. This makes activated charcoal a great solution for those who are seeking healthier skin, work on job sites, are in areas with high chemical use, or have sensitive, irritated or acne prone skin.
