Charcoal is known for its detoxifying properties, which is why it’s used as a skin care ingredient. And because charcoal is porous, it works like a magnet and attracts excess oil, dirt, and impurities.
The Body Shop’s Himalayan Charcoal line is made from charcoal from sustainable bamboo grown in the foothills of the Himalayas.
The Himalayan Charcoal line also has hibiscus flower extract that contains organic acids, salicylic acid, and alpine willow herb. These ingredients gently exfoliate the top outer skin and help refine pores over time, leaving skin feeling smother, softer, and more luminous.
Products in the line include Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Clay Wash, Himalayan Charcoal Skin Clarifying Night Peel, and Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask. These are available at The Body Shop stores and on its online store.
