Benefits of Charcoal Soap
Activated charcoal, as its name suggests, is a component of charcoal soap, which removes dirt, chemicals, bacteria, and other microscopic particles from the skin’s surface.
Charcoal has been used as a natural remedy for centuries, and is famous for its absorption and healing properties.
Charcoal is antibacterial and antiviral. It draws out toxins from the skin, reducing the size of pores, while also exfoliating the top layer of dead skin cells. The result is softer smoother skin that looks brighter and more radiant without irritation or irritation.
It is antibacterial and antiviral
Charcoal is a natural remedy, antibacterial and antiviral, a natural antiseptic, astringent, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory. Charcoal soap has been used for hundreds of years to treat cuts and wounds by drawing out impurities from the skin without leaving it dry or irritated like most modern medicines do today.
It is a deep cleanser. A natural exfoliator, charcoal can assist in removing dead skin cells that block pores and help to improve your complexion. The soap also helps to remove dirt and oil from the skin, which helps reduce breakouts. In addition to removing toxins from deep in your pores, it also kills off any remaining bacteria on the surface of your skin.

It reduces Pores
This soap is ideal for reducing pores. This is because it’s a gentle exfoliator, which means that it helps prevent the clogging of your pores. The charcoal in the soap also works as an antibacterial agent and can help keep acne at bay by clearing away dirt and oil buildup on your face while leaving behind a healthy glow. You should note that if you’re prone to dryness or irritation, this type of soap might be too harsh for you. If this is the case, try looking into other options like chemical peels or salicylic acid-based products instead.
A charcoal soap bar lasts longer than a liquid body wash
- The liquid body wash is often more expensive than a bar of soap.
- Plastic bottles are not good for the environment
- Keep in mind, that you’re paying for water that was wasted during the production and transportation of this product

- Charcoal is a natural detoxifier that absorbs dirt and oil from your pores. It’s also antibacterial, so it can get rid of the bacteria that cause pimples.

- Charcoal is also great for sensitive skin since it helps soothe inflamed areas while removing toxins and impurities from the pores. If you have dry patches or eczema flare-ups in addition to acne problems, try adding some aloe Vera gel into the mix. It’ll hydrate those problem areas while still giving them an extra boost when it comes to clearing out impurities too.

Does charcoal soap lighten skin?
Charcoal soap is not a skin lightener. In fact, it has no effect on the color of your skin at all. Instead, this soap is used to treat acne and other blemishes that appear on your face or body.
This soap acts as an exfoliating agent that removes dirt and dead layers of skin cells from your face and body, giving you a clean slate to use when applying makeup or moisturizer afterward. As such, while this may help clear up acne scars over time (which makes them less visible), there’s no evidence that it will actually lighten your complexion in any way whatsoever.

Yes, this soap is a great way to improve the appearance of dark spots and help prevent blemishes. Charcoal soap has been used for centuries for its purifying properties, so it’s no surprise that it can help keep your skin clean and healthy-looking.

The same quality makes the soap a great choice for reducing dark spots and pigmentation from sun damage or other skin conditions that cause discoloration.
What is the best for acne?

Ingredients for the Oils
- 17 oz. Coconut oil
- 35 oz. Olive oil
- 2 oz. Shea butter
- 1/8 tsp. Castor oil
- 1/2 cup activated charcoal
- 7.7 oz Water and lye
- 18 lb. oz Fluid
- Cover wooden soap molds with plastic or prepare molds for soap.
- Weigh out the water or ice in a bucket.

- Pour the water into the bucket first then add the lye. Stir the water and lye until the lye is dissolved. Make sure that all the lye has dissolved, this is very important. Set aside.
- Never add water to lye or lye to water as this will cause them to react violently and could lead to glass shattering.
- Always use a plastic bucket or a rubber-made plastic bowl when mixing lye and water.
- Measure the oil into a microwave-safe bowl. Warm for 2 minutes in the microwave. Or measure the oils in a pot and and warm on low until they reach about 120 degrees, no higher.
- In a bowl or bucket, add the oils with the lye and blend until a light trace takes place. Trace is when the mix looks like a pudding. Do not blend until it is too thick. Blend initIally for about 35 – 45 seconds.
- Add charcoal and whatever essential oil you have chosen to use. Mix the ingredients well. It's important that you mix them well so that the charcoal is evenly distributed throughout the soap. Use a stick blender to ensure that this happens.
- You should be mixing for at least half a minute to help ensure the even dispersal of the charcoal in your soap mixture.
- Pour into the mold and allow it to sit overnight before removing it from the mold and cutting it into bars as desired (you can also use molds if you’d like).
- This is definitely one of the easiest homemade soap recipes that you can try at home.

Is charcoal good for skin?Yes, it is good for your skin. Charcoal soap is made with activated charcoal powder, which can help remove dirt, bacteria, and oil from your skin. The detoxifying properties of charcoal are due to its ability to absorb toxins and impurities from the body through its porous structure. This makes it particularly useful for those who suffer from any skin problem and people who want a smoother skin tone and texture.
Does charcoal clear oily skin?Charcoal contains activated charcoal, a natural ingredient that absorbs oil. It’s good for oily skin and acne because it dries out excess oil on your skin and leaves you with a refreshingly clean feeling. Charcoal is also used in many beauty products such as deodorants, face wash, shampoo, and conditioners to help control oil production on the scalp as well as sebum from being secreted from pores on the face or body.
Which soap is best for your Skin?The answers to which soap is best for your skin will depend on the type of skin you have. For instance, if you have oily skin, try a soap that’s made with glycerin and salicylic acid. If you have normal or dry skin, try a soap that contains allantois (a moisturizing ingredient). If you’re prone to breakouts or allergic reactions, look for soaps with tea tree essential oil in them. If any of these sounds like something that would improve your current routine so this type of soap is best for your skin.
What is trace?When you’re making soap, there’s a certain point at which the ingredients have to be mixed together. This is called “trace.” When your mixture reaches trace, it’s ready to pour into your molds.
What is saponification?The process of turning oil into soap is called saponification. Saponification is a chemical reaction between an acid and a base that produces soap molecules, which are molecules with both acidic and basic properties at the same time. The term “saponification” or “saponification reaction” refers to this type of reaction as well as to the product generated by it.
How long should the soap cure before use?• The curing time depends on the ingredients used.
• It will take longer to cure depending on the soap-making method used.
• The temperature at which it is stored will also affect its curing time.
• If you use a lot of water in the pre-blending process, then your soap may need to cure sooner than if no water was used at all.
Why is it important to cure the soap?It is essential that soap be cured after being made. This period allows the lye to fully neutralize and saponify, which means it transforms from an oil into a solid. It also allows the moisture to evaporate from the soap, leaving behind pure glycerin and other ingredients. If you don’t cure your soap for at least four weeks, it won’t last as long or perform as well in water. Curing will also create a harder bar of soap that lasts longer and doesn’t dissolve as quickly.

It can help treat acne breakouts, dry skin patches, and oily skin. Plus it smells amazing and is free from harsh chemicals and irritants like parabens or phthalates.
