Activated charcoal is used to create a black soap that will not come off on a washcloth and will lather white. It is non-staining and the truest black we have found for soap. Our activated charcoal is created from renewable hardwood sources. This ingredient is a must-have for every soap maker!
Add to oils and then add to soap. This makes a darker black. When activated charcoal is added directly to soap it tends to be grayer.
Due to activated charcoal being an unapproved cosmetic colorant per the FDA, it is for soap only.
