Here at ECOSHOP we've been making our Own Natural Charcoal Deodorant to help with acne for years! Activated charcoal effectively cleanses the skin, unclogs pores, removes deeper impurities, and dead skin cells. The result is smooth, supple, and even-toned skin. Dirt, toxins, heavy metals, chemicals, and other poisons are attracted to the charcoal molecules and washed away. This simple recipe is perfect for making your very own soap! You will need a soap mould & a large mixing bowl. First pour all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and heat up until the mixture melts under a low / moderate heat.
- 100 Grams of Shea Butter
- 150 Grams of Beeswax / Vegan Alternative
Once the mixture has melted. Stir throughly. The add the two KEY ingredients below and mix until all the Charcoal has been absorbed by the mixture.
- 50ml of Witch Hazel Floral Water
- 20 Grams of Activated Charcoal Powder
Next pour your mixture into a soap mould and store in the fridge / leave in a cool place for 24 hours. & there we are! Your very own Charcoal Soap for acne. You can use this soap once a day (before bed is best due to the messy nature of charcoal). Simply apply your soap directly to problem areas with added water and wash off!
If you've got your own natural skincare making recipes then feel free to share them below! We're looking for more individuals to help us make a little eco-recipe page, so if you've got an eco-product / your own recipe then let us know below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! It would be great to also feature some small businesses around the UK who are making their own products!
