first experience with activated charcoal powder is when I was younger and my
sister would get very bad tummy aches.
My mother would give her some charcoal powder mixed in with some water
and get relief in less than 30 minutes. About
one year ago I started to research charcoal powder’s beauty benefits. The most
important benefit I found through my research is that charcoal powder is one of
the best detoxifying ingredients without drying your skin.
charcoal is made by burning pieces of bamboo at temperatures over 800 degrees
and then it is refined completely. Activated bamboo charcoal powder absorbs
odors, can purify water, and has beauty benefits too. Almost all water
purifiers for example Brita use charcoal to purify the water. Activated bamboo charcoal absorbs into the
pores on your skin & draws out the dirt and oils that are blocking the
pores. Regular use can help to eliminate
acne, bumps, and blackheads.
My first creation with activated
charcoal was a body soap called Twilight Detox which was an instant hit. Young people to active people with body acne
have had great success with this soap and the Twilight Detox Face & Body
The great thing about activated
charcoal powder is it does not dry out your skin like a lot of other purifying
ingredients for example clays. It
maintains the moisture levels while deep cleaning your pores. It also helps to fight odors which is great
for the active person.
It was only
supposed to be out for a few months but I decided to continue to make the
Twilight Detox based on their success.Customers loved the
smell so much from the Twilight Detox line that I created a perfume oil called
Twilight Lust Perfume Oil. The scent is
a combination of amber, vanilla, ylang ylang, frankincense, and azalea.
