This medicinal quality charcoal has a neutral pH level and is not only steam activated like food grade charcoal powder, it also undergoes a purification process which further enhances its drawing capacity.
Activated charcoal is pure carbon with millions of tiny micropores with a large surface area. Just one gram (half a teaspoon) has a surface area of 3,000m2. Because of this, charcoal is successfully used to absorb and bond to all types of organic materal and is still one of the most effective drawing substances on the market. It is used in water filters, to treat acute poisoning in hospitals around the world and as an emergency decontaminant.
Activated charcoal is capable of binding with many industrial toxins, medical drugs and inorganic chemicals and has applications for use in skin care and other personal care products, including teeth whitening, as well as being used internally to remove toxins from the body (which we always recommend you do in conjunction with a trained professional).
When using on the skin as a poutice, mix enough powder with water to make a paste and place on the affected area. Remove when dry and do not re-use.
