Why Bamboo Charcoal Soap with Activated Carbon is better than Other Soaps
The Black Diamond
Bamboo charcoal is called the ‘black diamond’ in Asia because of its many useful properties. Some of the properties are because of the antimicrobial, anti bacterial, anti viral and anti fungal properties of bamboo. The other reason why bamboo charcoal is so valued is because when bamboo is turned into charcoal it dramatically increases the ratio of surface area to weight. 1 gram of bamboo charcoal has a surface area of 600 meters.

Health Benefits of Bamboo Charcoal Soap
There is a company in South Korea that has patented a process of making ‘activated carbon’. This process involves grinding down bamboo charcoal and injecting it with steam. The result is bamboo charcoal that has double the surface area – namely, 1,200:1. The more surface area the better the absorption ability.
Bamboo charcoal soap with activated carbon is simply the best soap you can buy. Not only does it produce a rich lather but it also cleans the skin deeply. Because of the incredible absorbency of the bamboo charcoal with activated carbon, the soap can clean to the very bottom of skin pores.
Furthermore, unlike normal soap, bamboo charcoal soap does not leave a residue on the face. This means that the newly cleaned skin pores can receive natural moisturizing from the body’s oils. Because bamboo charcoal soap cleans the skins pores thoroughly and then allows them to be moisturized it is recommended that people with acne wash with bamboo charcoal soap.
Baggy eyes are a sign of aging. It is caused by the tender skin under the eyes collecting dirt which then makes the skin sag under the weight. By washing the skin under the eyes with bamboo charcoal soap the dirt is removed and the skins elasticity is restored and you look younger.
If you enjoy sport and have to shower a lot then bamboo charcoal soap is ideal for you because you don’t lose all your essential body oils every time you take a shower.
And finally, because bamboo has the ability to fight off pathogens, microbes and fungal spores, bamboo charcoal soap is great for protecting the family. It is a natural way to stay healthier. This is especially the case in hot and humid climates where it is easy to get fungal and viral infections.
So as you can see there are numerous health and beauty benefits of washing with bamboo charcoal soap and especially bamboo charcoal soap with activated carbon.
