Activated charcoal is oxidized to activate its ability to bind toxins and impurities so that the skin can’t absorb them. Not to be confused with those charcoal briquettes in your BBQ grill which are a type of fuel that are toxic to human.
California Baby #superclear Zit Balm is an intensive spot treatment that uses the power of activated charcoal to help purify skin, deep cleanse pores and improve the texture of skin.
(Side note: you may have heard of other uses of activated charcoal. It’s actually commonly used in the emergency room to treat certain kinds of poisoning because it helps prevent the poison from being absorbed from the stomach into the body!)
