From Apoterra Skincare:
This activated charcoal soap for acne provides a deep cleanse to promote clear, healthy and radiant skin. Activated charcoal gently removes impurities, tea tree and neem oil cleanse, while Dead Sea salt provides beneficial nutrients that promote healthy skin barrier function. This activated charcoal soap is a charcoal face soap that is ideal for those fighting adult acne or occasional blemishes.
Activated Charcoal // This is a charcoal that has been treated with oxygen which creates more active regions to chemically bind with impurities (hence it is called “activated” charcoal!). When applied topically, activated charcoal binds to dirt, oil and toxins, detoxifying the skin. Great for facial cleansers and masks that target cleansing the pores to prevent break outs.
Tea Tree essential oil // Tea tree essential oil has been extensively studied and has shown to have antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, and immune stimulating properties. Studies have also shown that topical application of the oil can help alleviate acne by killing the bacteria that causes breakouts.
Neem oil // The neem tree has been used in India as a medicinal herb for thousands of years and is still used today in Ayuverdic practices. The oil is rich, fragrant, and useful for problematic skin because of its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Dead Sea Salt // Dead Sea salt is rich in minerals like magnesium, calcium and bromide which, unlike sodium chloride which is what regular sea salt is made of, actually helps hydrate the skin. These minerals, when absorbed in the skin, also stimulate detoxification, reduce inflammation, help improve acne and psoriasis, and improve skin barrier function.
