Activated charcoal traps and clears toxins from the body, which is likely why it has become a trend in skincare. It acts like a magnet, attracting the dirt and oil that blocks pores resulting in pimples, dark spots, and blemishes. Activated charcoal soaps deep cleanse your skin, leaving it oil-free and clear.
Activated charcoal used as an ingredient in a skincare product is good for:
- treating oily skin
- removing dead skin cells
- clearing skin blemishes
- reducing pore size
- inhibiting skin disorders like eczema
Activated charcoal is the key ingredient in Lifebuoy’s Activated Charcoal and Mint soap. This new addition to the Lifebuoy soap range not only deep cleanses and detoxifies your skin, but fights the germs that cause blemishes and spots. It also contains hydrating ingredients which moisturise the skin, leaving it feeling soft and healthy. Altogether Lifebuoy’s Activated Charcoal and Mint Soap offers a superior deep cleanse, leaving your skin looking more even-toned and clear.
Lifebuoy Activated Charcoal and Mint soap soothes, moisturises and protects with:
- Mint oil, known for germ protection properties that cool the skin, leaving it feeling refreshed.
- Vegetable glycerine which hydrates the skin, leaving it feeling soft and healthy.
- Natural germ protection actives, offer 99.9% germ protection which can help in preventing blemishes and spots, leaving skin more even-toned.
Because activated charcoal also has exfoliating properties, it’s important that the bar you choose for daily use has hydrating ingredients. Lifebuoy Activated Charcoal and Mint soap contains high levels of moisturising vegetable glycerine which allows you to safely use it every day, in the same way you would any other bar of soap.
Moderate exercise is an excellent way to support your immune system. Popular guidance says to aim for 30 minutes per day, five days per week but any opportunity to move your body, at your own pace, is a positive step. Include a mix of cardio and strength training exercises. If you are not a gym fan, there are many other ways to get active. Other than taking part in sports, a hike in nature, a bicycle ride, a daily stroll or jog around your suburb are all activities that will benefit you.
Although activated charcoal soap has no known side effects, it’s always a good idea to test a little on your inner arm to check for any possible sensitivity.
