Do you know about the many benefits of activated charcoal? No you say? Why let me tell you!
Activated charcoal is awesome because of its ability to attract other substances to its surface and hold them there. This is called “adsorption” (not absorption). Another one of the benefits of activated charcoal is that it can adsorb thousands of times its own weight in harmful substances. One teaspoonful of it has a surface area of more than 10,000 square feet. The British medical journal, Lancet, discusses the amazing ability of the human skin to allow transfer of liquids, gases, and even micro-particles through its permeable membrane and pores, by the application of a moist, activated charcoal poultice and compress which actually draw bacteria and poisons through the skin and into the poultice or compress! The article describes the use of activated charcoal compresses to speed the healing of wounds and eliminate their odors.
Activated charcoal also helps to purify the blood. It has been used externally to effectively adsorb wound secretions, bacteria, and toxins. And, in an activated charcoal poultice and pack, it treats infections of the face, eyelids, skin, or extremities. The most effective type of charcoal is the activated form. This process renders it 2 to 3 times as effective as regular charcoal. Activated charcoal can also be taken internally to adsorb toxins and pollutants from the body as a very effective detox. It is also used in emergency rooms all over the word in treatment of drug induced overdoses. Now that you know some of the benefits of activated charcoal can you imagine these benefits in a soap, face mask and detox bath! Ohhhhhhh man!!!!
