Why Activated Charcoal is making its way into everyone’s cabinets

You would have seen the black grill all over Instagram & Facebook by now but it’s not just regular old barbecue coal all over their teeth! Activated Charcoal has gone through an extreme steam activating process, treated until it is ultra-fine & highly absorbent. This natural magnet has been around for thousands of years, detoxifying like a boss, absorbing oils, odors, dirt & impurities in our hair, teeth, skin & digestive system. These properties make it such a popular ingredient in scrubs, masks, teeth whitening, detox drinks & those delicious black waffles & ice-creams.


This black magic is easy to use, all natural and when stored correctly has an infinite shelf-life. Don’t we all just love a multi-tasker! Here is our tried and true office favorite:
