Benefits of Activated Charcoal for Your Skin

One of the biggest problems that people have with their skin is clarity. A lack of clarity is characterized by clogged pores, uneven skin tone, and a general dullness to the skin. You need to detoxify your skin with natural skincare products and one of those beauty products should be a charcoal mask. When used on a weekly basis, a charcoal mask can do wonders for your skin. Let’s look at some of the charcoal benefits for your skin, and two of our charcoal skincare products at Cosmedica Skincare that contain this important skincare ingredient.

Benefits of Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is a powerhouse in skincare ingredients because of its vast array of health benefits. First, it provides a deep cleanse of your skin. You’ll find that more makeup, dirt, oil, and debris are swept away with a product that uses charcoal. The reason it works so well is the fact that charcoal acts as a type of magnet, attracting debris to the molecules in the charcoal before you wash it away. 

That makes charcoal more effective at getting rid of deep-down impurities in the skin. Charcoal goes beyond the surface area of the skin and is able to unclog all the daily junk that gets into your pores, including dead skin cells. All that debris is basically plowed away by the way the charcoal reacts with your skin.

The result is healthier looking skin that is more radiantly clear. Brighter. Detoxified. Renewed. Excess oil is removed and pores are minimized. How amazing is that? When using skincare products with charcoal as an ingredient, they will produce results like you’ve never seen before with a cleanser.

Charcoal-Based Products to Try

You can start by using a charcoal product with our Cosmedica Skincare’s Activated Charcoal Facial Cleanser. Activated charcoal becomes activated when exposed to high temperatures. This product contains activated charcoal, but also other beneficial skincare ingredients, like Vitamin E and coconut oil, so that your skin doesn’t feel stripped of moisture and to prevent dry skin. Not only will your skin be detoxified after you use the charcoal cleanser, but it will feel silky soft and smooth.  

Our Activated Charcoal Facial Cleanser is also paraben-free, cruelty-free, and vegan. Having the right cleanser ensures that your skin receives all of the benefits that the rest of your daily skincare routine provides, including a charcoal mask.

Cosmedica Skincare Deep Detox Charcoal Mask

Another way to incorporate charcoal into your natural skincare products routine is by using our Cosmedica Skincare Deep Detox Charcoal Mask. It contains activated charcoal, Kaolin Clay, and Bentonite, which is another type of clay and popular ingredient that deep cleans your pores. All of these ingredients work together in this face mask to pull toxins and debris out of your skin, no matter the skin type. Individuals with oily skin, dry skin, acne-prone skin, or sensitive skin can all benefit!


You’ll be left with a smoother and clearer complexion that is brighter, more even, and renewed. Use this facial mask up to three times per week for the best results. It only takes five minutes to use – just smooth on a layer of the activated charcoal mask, let it dry, and rinse well with warm water. Then pat your skin dry and apply your regular skincare products, including facial serums like our Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum or Vitamin C Super Serum and your moisturizer. 

Let activated charcoal be your skin’s new best friend with both our cleanser and charcoal mask skin-care products. Trust us, you’ll notice the difference immediately with beautiful skin.
