Tasmania’s famous clean air and lush green paddocks are a result of dark rain clouds gently rolling over our mountain ranges. As the sky blackens you can almost feel the cleansing power of the approaching storm.
Activated charcoal is added to our soap to impart a delicious detoxifying feel while the natural glycerin and extra oils leave your skin feeling fed and moisturised.
'Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of the skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. Charcoal is not metabolized or absorbed by the body, but it can be used to treat some poisonous bites and disinfect some wounds. Activated charcoal powder is proven to adsorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances, Activated charcoal has high absorptive powers, which means that it draws other elements into itself. Charcoal is activated through heat and exposure to steam and certain chemicals. This process causes the carbon to form enlarged "pores," which are fissures and pockets in its surface. When it is exposed to contaminants, they literally become trapped in the carbon's pores. Charcoal also has antibacterial properties that can help heal wounds. Activated carbon is used for everything from industrial water filtration to medicinal supplements.
