Skincare 101 - Ingredient Crush: Bamboo Charcoal


Ingredient Crush – Activated Bamboo Charcoal

I am so excited about the recent launch of our new Age Clear line for combating acne. This line provides a comprehensive acne care line designed to both treat and prevent acne while also promoting optimal skin health and renewal. The first step in this system is the Skin Detox Cleanser which is a deep cleansing gel containing activated bamboo charcoal to help remove oil, make up, environmental pollutants and other debris from the skin.

What is Activated Bamboo Charcoal?
Activated Bamboo Charcoal is bamboo carbon that has increased absorbancy. Activated bamboo charcoal is processed into a fine powder to give it a very large surface area so that it can absorb a higher volume.


  • It acts like a magnet to attract and absorb dirt, oil, bacteria, and residue from the skin. When dirt and oil in your pores come in contact with the carbon, they stick to it and then get washed away when you rinse.
  • Activated Bamboo Charcoal also acts as a gentle exfoliant to help remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. 
  • Deeply cleanses congested and clogged pores, and combats acne. 

Who should use products containing Activated Bamboo Charcoal?
Activated Bamboo Charcoal containing products are ideal for regular use on oily, congested, and acne-prone skin. It can also be used by those just looking for a deeper cleansing action a few times a week or as needed. It is excellent for removing makeup and sunscreen.
