What are the Benefits of Activated Charcoal and Clay?
Activated Charcoal has been a hot topic in the health and beauty industry but what exactly does it do?
To begin, it has incredible toxic extraction capabilities and is known to be used in hospitals. Activated charcoal is created by burning coconut shells, wood, or bamboo at very high temperatures. The activated charcoal we use in our facemask is derived from coconut. The heat changes the molecular structure which increases its surface area and makes it more porous. As a result, the charcoal molecules are able to bond to the toxins in your body and extract them. The difference with activated charcoal is they are free of toxins and are a natural way to clean your face.
The benefits of activated charcoal include detoxifying and anti-aging properties amongst many others. The altered charcoal molecules have a negative electric charge which attracts the positively charged toxins in your body. Its natural detoxification properties are so powerful that they are used in hospitals to treat victims of lithium and cyanide poisoning.
Activated charcoal is able to act as a natural anti-aging property through its ability to remove toxins from your face. Less toxins means your face is experiencing less of the oxidative damage which is known to drive the aging process.
We have decided to include activated charcoal in our facemask because it is a powerful natural way to remove dirt, oil, and bacteria from your skin. As a result, your pores will be noticeably cleaner after one use.
Our facemask also includes both Bentonite and Kaolin clay.
Bentonite clay is made from the volcanic ash which is aged in prehistoric sea beds. Gurus and beauty bloggers everywhere have been talking about it. Although you may have just begun hearing about it, there is evidence that ancient civilizations have used the clay for health purposes thousands of years ago. They used the clay to reduce inflammation on their body which can help make your face less puffy.
The benefits of bentonite clay are how it can help soothe and protect your skin along with improving the appearance of your skin.
Studies have shown bentonite clay can help in protecting from poison ivy rashes and can help treating inflamed skin.
Similar to activated charcoal, it will help remove the dirt and oil from your pores to get a deep clean.
To get the best use of your facemask you should use it after you shower. This is because the steam opens your pores so the facemask can clean them the most effectively. You should leave the facemask on for 10 minutes or until it is dry and wipe it off with a wet cloth afterwards. You should aim to use your facemask multiple times each week to get the best result.
