Activated charcoal vs charcoal
Activated charcoal is very different from charcoal. There are similarities too – both are black, both are forms of carbon. However; they are two different things in physical properties.
Activated charcoal is created by heating bamboo or coconut husks in special furnaces to very high temperatures. In most cases, this heating is done using steam. This treatment creates millions of minuscule, negatively charged and adsorbent pores in charcoal, thereby activating it and making it activated charcoal. A special and unique feature of this activation is that even a tiny amount of activated carbon has immense surface area (counting in the porous surface) that enables these pores to trap and bind toxins without any chemical reaction.
Are you thinking just how much surface area can a pinch of activated carbon have?
Well, note that surface area of just 1 g activated charcoal is over 32000 square feet!

Its super porous, super adsorbent, and negatively charged surface draws out hidden toxins and impurities from surface as well as from within pores. These toxins are trapped, bound and washed away, leaving your skin detoxified. This action also leaves pores refined and smaller. Extra sebum and dead cells are also trapped and cleared out for visibly smoother and better looking skin.
