Current obsession: Activated charcoal

I’m loving the Beautycounter charcoal soap and mask so much and I’m completely intrigued by activated charcoal in general. This article by Dr. Axe goes into detail about how and why it works and it’s many amazing uses (see image).

I have been getting lots of questions from clients who want to better understand why the charcoal soap works so well and what the buzz is about. Curious how it works? “Activated charcoal works by trapping toxins and chemicals in its millions of tiny pores. It doesn’t absorb the toxins, however. Instead it works through the chemical process of adsorption. In the body, absorption is the reaction of elements, including nutrients, chemicals and toxins, soaked up and assimilated into the blood stream. Adsorption is the chemical reaction where elements bind to a surface.” For more info check out the link below.

I am particularly excited to get the capsules later today and try brushing my teeth with it!!

Has anyone been using activated charcoal capsules or powder for anything? Id love to hear your feedback!
