Reviva Labs recently introduced an entire line of charcoal-based skin care products – the first complete charcoal regimen of its kind in the natural skin care market. So we’d like to discuss the skin care benefits of charcoal, and how Reviva is using it in its newest skin care regimen.
Cleansing benefits of charcoal
One of the things charcoal does best is draw impurities to the surface of the skin, where they can be rinsed away. Bacteria, toxins, and other dirt and chemicals are drawn out of the skin, leaving the skin clean and clear.
Clarifying benefits of charcoal
Activated charcoal can adsorb multiple times its weight in impurities – making it particularly beneficial for facial masks. Allowing the charcoal to remain in the skin gives it time to flush out toxins, leaving skin healthier and smoother. Charcoal can also help to brighten the skin.
Exfoliating benefits of charcoal
The texture of charcoal makes it a great natural exfoliant. Even as a fine, non-abrasive powder, charcoal exfoliates gently to remove dead skin cells and bacteria from the skin.
Acne fighting benefits of charcoal
The cleansing, clarifying, and exfoliating benefits of charcoal make it particularly great for fighting acne – and even diminishing acne scars. While charcoal draws out and sweeps away old sebum and other impurities, it leaves the skin less oily and more balanced. And since it is helping to rid skin of bacteria that can cause acne, breakouts may be reduced. Charcoal’s gently exfoliation can go a long way toward removing the dead skin on tp of acne scars, helping to uncover the new skin beneath the surface.
Why use charcoal in a moisturizer?
Charcoal has a balancing effect on your skin. It helps to purify skin while not stripping skin of natural oils. Its addition to moisturizing crémes helps keep skin balanced, removing toxins and soothing irritations, while helping to hydrate.
What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is carbon (charcoal) that has been treated with oxygen. This results in a very porous charcoal – which has a larger surface area to help the carbon adsorb (bind with) impurities, toxins, and other contaminants.
Bamboo and Coconut Charcoal
Reviva’s new charcoal skin care line uses two of the finest types of charcoal: bamboo and coconut. The coconut charcoal is processed from the coconut shell, while bamboo charcoal is produced from moso bamboo – which can grow up to two feet per day.
