A little goes a long way!
So, I ordered what I suspected would be a year supply (the big bag). Then I accidently ordered it again with my next order. I'm glad that I did, because I love it! It will absolutely last me 2 years, if not more. A little bit goes a long way! For color, this blows micas away! Mine came in a double taped-top bag, with almost no escaped dust in the box. I live in Wa state, so I am thinking most bad packaging reviews are more the fault of the shipping company than BB's packaging, because I get boxes in near original packaging state and they are always perfect!

EXCELLENT Odor Remover!
I can't believe that I haven't made a purely AC soap bar yet, LOL (but I intend to)! This is a fantastic odor remover as well as a pure, simple and renewable source for a Black colorant. Just don't use too much; use only enough to obtain your color. Otherwise, your soap may produce dark, creamy suds (which is AWESOME for a gag gift!). PS: If you read all the complaining reviews then just be aware that this is a VERY FINE BLACK POWDER and no matter what packaging it's put in (mine was triple bagged and there were no leaks), it's probably going to be a bit messy...you just need to be more thoughtful and cautious while using it, that's all. ;)

Disappointed / problem rectified
After doing extensive research as to what company is the best in soap making products for over the course of a few months I decided to place my very big order with Brambleberry. I read many review on the products that I purchased. After waiting like a kid at Christmas for a week for my package to arrive. I opened up the box to a hideous black mess!!! After taking a moment I realized that it was the charcoal. It was more on all the other products in the box than in the bag that held the charcoal. I had read several reviews about this problem and with all the fuss over Brambleberry I thought that whatever caused this problem would have been rectified. But apparently not. After spending over 30 minutes and ruining several washcloths and towels I still havent finished trying to salvage the products . Guess I wont be trying out these awesome products for awhile. Well at least not until I clean up the mess. After contact with customer service ALL issues were fixed. Great customer service!!!

Activated Charcoal
This is a great product. It came is a large enough container so that upon opening it up, the fine powder did not fly into the air. It makes a wonderful, true black color when using clear soap. Only thing I didn't anticipate is that when used, the lather turned a bit gray. Not a bad thing and it's understandable -- it is charcoal after all! I just have to remember to tell my customers so that they know what to expect! I will definitely buy it again! Great price!

Packaging
I placed a large order and it was packed with genius however a small amount of this powder from this package spilled onto most everything else and I have tried to clean it off the white jar lids that came with my order and they are permanently stained. I realize that doesn't affect the oxides inside the bottles but it is unsightly. Please put this charcoal jar inside a plastic bag all its own so any spillage is contained to that bag or like one other review, use packing tape around the jar.

Hi Ja! I'm so glad the rest of your order was packed with genius, though I'm sorry the Activated Charcoal's packaging allowed it to leak in your package like that. We have just started taping our activated charcoal jars because of customer feedback like yours! So this should not be a future problem. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
