Common charcoal is manufactured out of coal, peat, wood, petroleum or even coconut shells. “Activated charcoal” is made by manufacturers heating common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop internal spaces or pores that allow activated charcoal to trap chemicals. It is for this reason that activated charcoal is often used to absorb toxic substances.

Yay! Gonna make a charcoal soap! I figured, hey, it's a powder so like other ground stuff and powders I mixed it with a little warm almond oil so it wouldn't clump and it would mix better in the soap. BAD IDEA! Omg. What it made was a very effective pure black oil paint like substance that I managed to get on everything this side of the neighbor's driveway and it's by NO means easy to clean up. I read some recipes online that said to whisk it in a little at the time right into the soap. Gonna try that next time. The soap turned out perfect though. Bite the bullet and go ahead and put it in a jar or tub with a lid. That crazy bag will puff it all over Creation.

Just wondering if anyone has used it in soap making and how much did they use in a 5lb batch

I like this product, and a little goes a long way. The only thing I don't care for is the packaging. I received it int he 4oz bag, and once the charcoal gets in the seam, it doesn't seal well. I love it, but Activated charcoal is very light, and very messy! I think a tub would work better for this product.

I cannot believe I haven't had this in my life soonder! I bought it to put in my toothpaste and mascara and decided to try it in a face mask with bentonite clay and aloe vera. Amazing. Then, I tried my toothpaste on my face for a face scrub and was told that I "looked better than I ever have" at a family reunion! Yea!!! My only drawback is I wish there was a sifter in the container because it is impossible to use without making a mess.

Out of all the places we looked for this product, Bulk Apothecary has the best product and prices. We use it as an additive in our soap products and it is great.

The jar makes it so much easier to measure and reseal. Once, i just tapped the zip top bag and it spewed charcoal everywhere! Thank you for putting it in a jar now. :)

I love the way this product makes my mouth feel so clean. I hate messiness of the powder though. This is a start of a beautiful relationship.

I have been hearing the great benefits of AC. And decided to try it for myself. I used it as a teeth whitening and my teeth look AMAZEBALLS!
Next I'm going to use as a facial mask to help clear up acne. Can't wait :)

This is an excellent price with shipping and my family uses it for brushing our teeth. It attacks the main ingredient in teas and coffees and sugars and gives you a squeaky clean mouth. Plus ya can't beat this price with a baseball bat ANYWHERE!
