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.
I got the activated charcoal because it does double duty as a black colorant and a skincare ingredient. I don't mind micas in bags, but the jar is definitely the way to go with activated charcoal, such a fine powder.
As always, love the packaging and well. No styrofoam to deal with and the RyGos card was cute. Thanks!
Highly recommend it!
This is my second time purchase the activated charcoal to use in my skin care products. It's amazing I love it. I highly recommend Narture Soap Activated Charcoal.
Very nice charcoal
This was the first activated charcoal I have used, and I was very pleased with the results. One teaspoon per pound of oils made a lovely grey color; two teaspoons per pound of oils made a deep, true black. It also worked well for painting the eyes on my Spider-Man soap; a quarter teaspoon mixed with some sweet almond oil did the job admirably, as can be seen in the photo.
