Artisan Soap Collection - Charcoal Face Soap
Small batches of speciality soap
Face soaps just make life easy. They're effective, they rinse off beautifully, they're easy to transport, they're just easy.
This one has been created for people that have problems with spots. Charcoal is all over the internet at the moment, thanks to some pretty terrifying looking masks, but there's a reason charcoal keeps coming up, it's super useful. It also makes the soap lather very densely, making it easy to apply and of course, rinse. The essential oils are there to support the charcoal in dealing with extra oil, grease and dirt and making them all disappear. The purpose of putting charcoal in a soap is that it increases adsorption, that's not a spelling mistake, it's actually a thing. Absorption is the forming of a bond between an adsorber, in this case charcoal and another molecule, like bacteria or grease for example. So unlike many other soaping additives, like petals or scents, charcoal is doing a job in there, a really effective one.
We've decorated this bold black bar with a fine pencil line of zinc oxide too, just because it's pretty. It's another addition to the plastic free family, we hope you love it.
