Pure Delight Hemp have used the highest quality, organic food grade, coconut husk derived, activated charcoal we could source and packed it into a biodegradable ziplock bag to keep it together and packed that into our BioBags. No plastic is used in these. Once considered a universal antidote, activated charcoal is negatively charged, drawing toxins and trapping them in its porous structure.
– Though they make this with organic, food grade activated charcoal and then packaged it into food grade packaging, this is labelled as not food grade. There is too much risk in such a product with it absorbing peoples medication so they have decided to label this external use only :).
-Tooth whitening: Activated charcoal clings to and absorbs tooth staining compounds and plaque, leaving your teeth cleaner and whiter.
-Skin treatment: Can be used as a mask, wash or rinse for your skin. Removes toxins and is slightly abrasive removing dead skin too. Best combined with our Moisturising Face Scrub.
What is Activated Charcoal?
Activated charcoal is a fine black powder made from (in this case) organic coconut shells.
It is then “activated” in a high temperature steaming process. This changes the particles, giving them a large surface area, shrinking it pours and negatively charging it.
How does it work?
With a strong negative charge, activated charcoal picks up toxins and chemicals trapping them. The charcoal itself can’t be absorbed and is easily removed along with its payload.
