Himalayan Charcoal Skincare by The Body Shop


Charcoal is famously known as a detoxifying superfood, and skin care ingredient, because of its absorption qualities. This means that when you apply it to your skin, the charcoal attracts any excess oil, dirt, and impurities on your skin, leaving your skin feeling cleansed and purified when you wash the charcoal away. The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal skincare line is made from bamboo, which is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world, making it an environmentally-friendly resource.
