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!
Recommended use rate in cold and hot process soap is 1 tsp. per pound of oils. One of the things that makes our activated charcoal so great is that it's ridiculously easy to use. You don't have to premix it. Add about 1 teaspoon per pound to your oils and hit it with the stick blender. Add bit by bit until you have the dark black color you're wanting. It's so easy!
