Let Charcoal Filter Out Your Skin's Toxins
By Raychel Powell, Associate Art Director |
I have to admit that under normal circumstances, I might have been a bit hesitant to use a black bar of soap. However, when I got my hands on Organic Charcoal Detox Soap, the presentation immediately won my admiration. SoCal Cleanse has taken eco-friendly to a new level, not only using soy ink, water-based adhesive and recycled paper, but actually embedding wildflower seeds in the box, too. But under the eco-friendly packaging, this is an equally amazing product.
Pollutants that constantly build up on our skin can clog pores, tamper with oil levels, and accelerate aging, so SoCal Cleanse has harnessed the beauty benefits of charcoal to fight these toxins, producing a soap that cleanses, purifies and balances the skin. It contains a blend of organic oils and activated charcoal from coconut shells. The oils nourish and moisturize, while the highly absorbent charcoal draws out impurities.
The bar also acts as a natural disinfectant, killing germs while it gently removes dirt and dead skin cells. It's gentle enough to use every day and helps improve skin conditions like acne, eczema and psoriasis.
If you're still concerned about the fact that the soap is black, worry not. When applied to the skin, the soap is still black as it liquefies, but works into a creamy, luxurious lather that's light gray-almost silver-and then rinses away totally, leaving your skin glowing. You can almost feel the impurities being lifted from your skin, while you soak up rich moisture in exchange. It's the freshest clean I've ever experienced, and it lasts all day!
Even with the incredible results from my Detox Soap, I couldn't forget about the seed-embedded box. You simply place the it under an inch of soil and water. I currently have some of the seeds planted in my yard, and can't wait for the wildflowers to blossom!
