Black Diamond Soap

Natural Acne Treatment Bamboo charcoal soap has been used in many Asian countries for centuries. It is known as the “black diamond” of healers. The surface area to weight ratio of bamboo charcoal is 600:1. This means that 1 gram of bamboo charcoal has a surface area of 600 square meters. This is because of the presence of the C60 carbon molecule that is a ball shape.

After the bamboo is harvested, it is “carbonized” at extremely hot temperatures to increase its surface area to weight ratio to 1,200:1. The result is called activated carbon or activated bamboo charcoal. Bamboo is a very sustainable resource. Contrary to popular belief, bamboo is not actually a tree, it is a type of grass. Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world (fully mature at the 6-7 year mark). Because it is a grass, when you cut down the stalks, it will just regrow from the existing root structure. That makes bamboo a very sustainable and environmentally friendly resource. When soap is made with activated bamboo charcoal it makes a soap that is very absorbent and that is capable of cleaning the skin much better than any other soap. It imparts a deep hue to the soap as well. This why it is known as the “black diamond soap.” The list of benefits of activated bamboo charcoal soap is rather impressive.

Check a few out: Activated Bamboo Charcoal can absorb minerals, toxins, impurities, and other harmful substances from your skin, leaving you with stronger, healthier skin. It can act as a natural exfoliant to remove dead skin cells. Activated Bamboo Charcoal is an effective, natural treatment for acne. The bamboo charcoal in the soap makes it more absorbent than normal soaps and as a result it can clean deep inside the skin pores, cleaning better than normal soap. Normal soaps leave a residue on the skin that stops the pores breathing properly and stopping the body’s natural moisturizers from working on acne skin. Bamboo charcoal soap is different. It leaves no residue on the skin and so allows the pores to breathe and be naturally moisturized. The skin under the eyes is more tender than our other facial skin. As a result, when dirt collects in the pores of under eye skin it starts to sag with weight and we begin to look old. Activated bamboo charcoal soap gets down deep into the pores in the under eye skin properly clearing them of dirt which ultimately prevents sagging. As a result you look younger. Another use for activated bamboo charcoal soap is to treat eczema, psoriasis and dry cracked skin. Bamboo kills bacteria and bamboo charcoal cleans the skin thoroughly and allows the body’s natural moisturizers to work effectively on eczema and psoriasis. Bamboo is not only antibacterial but also anti-viral, anti-fungal and antimicrobial. As a result activated bamboo charcoal soap is ideal for people who are exposed to or battle fungal, viral and other bacteria based problems of the skin.

When used in bath water, activated Bamboo Charcoal releases many beneficial minerals, such as calcium, potassium and magnesium into the water. This creates a soothing, relaxing hot spring-water like effect. The challenge until now has been sourcing good quality Bamboo Charcoal Soap that isn't mixed with low quality fats to make it go further. We've found a UK manufacturer, using coconut oil - another natural wonder and the result is a fantastic, medicinal, yet luxurious bar.
