Activated Charcoal for Skin Care
Activated charcoal might sound like the latest beauty fad, but the practice of using it for detoxification has actually been around for centuries. If you want to purify your skin for a deeply clean feeling, DERMA E has several activated charcoal skin care products that can renew your skin like nothing else.
About Activated Charcoal Skin Care Products
The Purifying collection is charcoal skin care at its best, combining the strong detoxification power of activated charcoal with DERMA E’s signature 100% vegan, cruelty-free formulations that emphasize high-quality natural ingredients to provide maximum benefits for you.
Because activated charcoal can thoroughly clean the surface of your skin, a charcoal-based face wash is a great choice for keeping your skin looking healthy and feeling fresh on a daily basis. The Purifying Gel Cleanser is fragrance and sulfate free as well as pH balanced; the activated charcoal is blended with mineral-rich Kimarine® Wakame and Bladerwrack seaweed, green tea and aloe leaf extract to form a powerhouse combination that nourishes the skin while still providing a deep, refreshing clean. Couple it with the Purifying Daily Detox Scrub, a gentle exfoliating charcoal scrub that really works at getting rid of the skin’s micro-pollutants, for complete detoxification that can be done on a daily basis.
Each week, you can supplement with an activated charcoal face mask to clear the pores of dirt, oil, bacteria and other pollutants that can keep your skin from looking its best. DERMA E’s Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask draws out impurities with a clay-based formulation that not only features activated charcoal and seaweed but also apricot seed powder for exfoliating dead skin cells that can mar the surface appearance of your skin. The end result is a complexion that looks flush with good health.
Benefits of Activated Charcoal for your Skin
Activated charcoal isn’t a normal barbecue briquette—it is medical grade and used in emergency rooms to treat patients for poisoning. This type of charcoal is unique among skin care ingredients because it can absorb an astounding 100 to 200 times its weight in toxins, making it ideal for skin detoxification. The impurities in your skin bind to the charcoal so they are no longer trapped on the surface of your skin—your pores look visibly smaller because they are cleaner. Those cleaner pores can also mean fewer blemishes because the surface of the skin isn’t clogged with dirt, dead skin cells or micropollutants. Clean skin means healthy-looking skin, and activated charcoal products can achieve a fresh, sparkling complexion that radiates purity. Refresh your skin care routine—and your skin itself—by adding activated charcoal products that both detoxify and beautify.
