Activated Coconut Charcoal Powder can be mixed with cosmetics, toiletries, personal care items, used for detoxification and more!
To “activate” charcoal, the powder is broken down into nearly pure carbon, then it is treated with steam, oxygen, carbon dioxide, acids and other chemicals to make it more porous. The resulting material acts as an “adsorbent” agent, which is different from absorbency that occurs when a substance passes into or through molecules. Adsorbency occurs when the substance attaches (binds) to another surface. Because activated charcoal is not absorbed by the body, the body will instead attempt to pass the compound during normal digestion. This process may help the body to remove metals, metabolic waste, or other internal challenges.
