Why We Love

Charcoal

The name “Charcoal” comes from the Old English words “cierran” (meaning “to change, turn”) and “col” (meaning “coal”). Initially used for heat, cavemen discovered its potential as a pigment for cave drawings around 30,000 BC. Activated charcoal, a special form of carbon, binds substances on its surface through adsorption, resulting in a black, odorless powder. It offers various benefits and is well-tolerated.
The Phoenicians recognized charcoal’s outstanding substance-binding ability as early as 400 BC, storing water in charred barrels to enhance its taste. One of the  main benefits is its use in emergency rooms for gastrointestinal decontamination. Activated charcoal has gained popularity as a natural remedy, detoxifying the body and improving kidney health. In Ayurveda, it is believed to alleviate digestive problems and promote healthy bowel movements.
Charcoal also has external beauty benefits. It whitens teeth and is a common ingredient in natural toothpaste and whitening products. Additionally, it draws microparticles, including dirt, dust, chemicals, toxins, and bacteria, to the skin’s surface, aiding their removal. Its antimicrobial properties make it effective in treating skin conditions like acne and eczema.
