Considered the most effective adsorbent material in the world today add activated charoal to your DIY skin care.
Uses + How It Works
Commonly used in facial masks, cleansers, or skin gels. Activated charcoal is highly absorbent and is great for folks with oily skin.
Making activated charcoal involves heating carbon-rich materials, such as wood, peat, coconut shells, or sawdust, to very high temperatures.
This ‘activation’ process strips the charcoal of previously absorbed molecules and frees up bonding sites. This process also reduces the size of the pores in the charcoal and makes more holes in each molecule, therefore, increasing its overall surface area.
This process of activating charcoal makes it extremely absorbent, allowing it to bind to molecules, ions, or atoms. In this way, it removes these from dissolved substances.
As a result, one teaspoon of activated charcoal has more surface area than a football field.
