Activated Charcoal – Our activated charcoal powder comes from various hard woods (a renewable resource). It is produced by a high temperature steam activation process and is used in pharmaceutical and food industries. We use it to make beautiful black and rich gray colors in our natural soap.Ingredients:Botanical Name: Carbo activatusCommon Name: Activated Charcoal
I like the charcoal in my soap. It dispersed well and made my bar a nice grey color. I read the other reviews about packaging and can agree somewhat. I didn't have a problem with mine. It came in a small plastic jar (no tape or extra baggie). It did have a small amount of charcoal dust on the jar itself, but the lid stayed in place and it wasn't all over my other products. I personally placed the jar inside a baggie for storage in my home, so I don't get charcoal dust on anything else. Works for me!
My children love the soap that I make with the Activated Charcoal as a facial cleanser and they use it every time they wash their face.
I was a bit concerned about opening the box after reading other reviews. I figured the bag of black powder would explode upon touching. Not so...it's now in a jar and easy to work with. Great product and a good amount for the price!
My AC was double bagged, but trying to get the second bag open was a huge mess. I had to cut the bag right under the seal to get it open (as careful as I was trying to be) the charcoal ended up everywhere.. I figured I would transfer it to a sealed container to keep the mess to a minimum and I ended up with a mess all over due to the charcoal being all the way p to where the bag was sealed. (I even tapped the bag at the seal before I opened it to try to get the charcoal to drop down away from where I had to cut). I know you have to be cost effective when packaging, but you might want to try another was to package this.
I use this product in my cold processed soaps and overall I love the color I end up once my soaps have cured. I would order again, but that packaging is a nightmare. I would strongly suggest another solution for packaging this product because it can be a frustrating mess trying to use the product and end up getting activated charcoal everywhere.
