    Ingredients & Info

    📁 SDS

    INCI: Activated Charcoal

    Ideal for:
    • Soap
    • Resin
    • Crafts
    • Wax Melts

    Prop 65: This product is not on the CA Prop 65 list of toxic chemicals.

    Soap Use Notes

    • Use rate in cold & hot process soaps: 1-2 teaspoons per pound of oils.
    • Use rate in melt & pour soaps: .5 teaspoons per pound of oils.

    ~ More or less can be added to achieve your desired color. These usage rates are recommended for no colored lather. ~

    Add Activated Charcoal to your soap making oils before adding your lye. Disperse thoroughly with a stick blender until it is fully mixed, then add your lye water. This will help achieve the darkest black.

    Gel your soap! If you gel your soap if using activated charcoal your soap will turn very dark. Gelling is the secret to getting the blackest black with activated charcoal in cold process soaps.

    If using in bath bombs, add polysorbate 80 at half your oils. For example, if your oil = 3 teaspoons, use polysorbate at 1.5 teaspoons. This will help prevent a color ring around the tub.

    Blackest black

    Just used this for the first time. It blends easily into CP soap and gives a deep rich black. It does create grayish lather at 2 tsp PPO, but seems to be lessening as my soap cures.

    The charcoal gives an amazing black color to my cold processed soap , and just amplifies the total quality of the soap by a lot , highly recommended for color mixing or just the benefits

    Best seller

    One of my best seller I have returned costumers asking for it.

    M.R. (Hyden, US)

    I bought this thinking I would only use it for certain recipes to help cleanse the skin of oils and toxins. To my surprise I have used this in so many ways, to get a really good black, to help get different variations or colors for very distinct looks. It has been a great staple in my CP Soaps! I will have to order another one soon! Attached are just a few bars I have used activated charcoal in

    E.M. (Sevierville, US)

    Best activated charcoal out there.

    Acne be gone

    This is by far my favorite bar to make. Add in a little tea tree essential oil and you have the best facial bar. The AC helps dry up excess oils and my customers swear by it
