WTF is…Charcoal?!

So with 2015 (and all those wonderful holidays) done and over with you’ll probably find yourself saddled with one of two things. Either loads of presents from being a good little boy/girl or a surplus of barbecue fuel. If you wound up with the latter don’t pout or cry, because Santa actually gave you the perfect tool to clean up your act. Introducing Charcoal, one of the most widely used toxin filters in the world.

Now before you start rubbing Kingsford all over your face there are a few things you should know. Charcoal, or carbon, that is used for filtration is put through a process called activation to increase it’s effectiveness as a filter. Activated charcoal usually comes in the form of powder and is used to absorb a wide variety of toxins and impurities. Medicinally, activated charcoal is used for it’s ability to treat alcohol poisonings and drug overdoses.


Soooo useful inside and out! Image via

It can also be used to help whiten your teeth. No, we’re serious! Just add a dab of activated charcoal powder to your toothpaste and it’ll not only clean the gook from your gums but absorb any residual gook in your teeth! Just make sure your rinse and spit thoroughly to avoid looking like you have Gila Monster mouth.

When it comes to your skin, activated carbon acts as a sponge to draw out the dirt and oils within which is then easily rinsed off. So when you wash that black sludge mask off your face know that it is MUCH cleaner then before you put it on.

Here in The Raw Spa we use activated charcoal in our Marquis&Baron bars, which we are hoping to have in the store this week, and Red Room bars from our Erotica Sensualis line to give you a powerful cleanse whether you are taking a shower or a bath.
