ACTIVATED COCONUT CHARCOAL

 

Activated charcoal is well known as an antidote as it adsorbs most organic toxins, chemicals and poisons before they can harm the body.  It also has extensive skin health benefits as it draws out oil, dirt and other harmful substances from clogged pores due to its adsorption powers.  In fact, activated charcoal powder is proven to adsorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances, which makes it a fantastic skin care product.  It is important to know that not all activated charcoal is created equal – the wrong type of charcoal can actually cause damage to delicate pores.   We use activated coconut charcoal, which is the finest grade available, and is the only type of charcoal that is activated using heat instead of solvents (which can leave a chemical residue).   Do you know the type of charcoal that is in your cleanser?

AVOCADO OIL

 

The benefits of cold pressed avocado oil depend a whole lot on the presence of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and Vitamin E.  They are found to be effective in smoothening up the skin stature thereby maintaining a silky skin tone. It is the high level of Vitamin E that prevents the skin from inflammations and itchiness thereby helping skin to maintain its health and softness.  Avocado oil is capable of penetrating deep into the skin unlike other oils and this helps in achieving quicker results and is a humectant, which prevents the skin from drying. While avocado oil work for all kind of skins, those with dry skin is likely to gain best results.
