Activated Charcoal capsules have a variety of uses - internally and externally. Use 2-3 cap-fuls to whip up a mask - very good for acne-prone skin types.

A must for your beauty arsenal. (And inexpensive, too).

I originally ordered this as a health supplement to detoxify and to have in case of gas, food poison, oral cleaner, skin care. First it doesn't cost very much and I have the capsules that break open if you desire to use loosely. But I think it is essential to have in the medicine cabinet. This cheap little product all but saved my face one day when I was removing my makeup with a Epielle …Read more

I was curious about the claims that activated charcoal can be used to whiten teeth, so I got an inexpensive little bottle of capsules for under $5. I open a capsule and dump it into a little cup, then I put toothpaste on a damp toothbrush and dip it into the AC. I brush for about a minute, then rinse very thoroughly. I'll try to floss afterward too because bits of the AC can get stuck …Read more

I just love finding inexpensive, multi-use, natural items like this. The ways I have used this so far are:

1. As a face mask. I looked for recipes online and didn't have any of the other ingredients needed. One way to make a mask with this is to mix with bentonite clay. My Queen Helene mask is mainly bentonite so I threw a dollop of that in a glass bowl, dumped a bunch of …

I don't find the mask aspect of AC to be the best use, but in using it I did not experience any AC detritus in my large pores. It is better used for tooth whitening, which is messy but effective. (I use it with baking soda and my ancient electric Oral B toothbrush.) Incidentally, I purchased the capsules from Whole Foods to have on hand on my vet's advice after my dog chewed an untold …Read more

Hi Guys,

I've been reading these reviews on Charcoal and am like the other person earlier - with red Wine - love it, I also have imflamation so have going to try it for that also, my capsules are en-route.

BUT !!!! I think I have an idea for when your using it over the sink and it's staining/marking your sink. What about either covering your sink in clingfilm on …

I use activated charcoal when I am bloated or have some stomach problems. It works great for this.

As a face mask- I crush some charcoal pills, put water, make a paste and put on my face.
I leave it for 10 mins, then I gently massage and wash my face.
Results- clear skin BUUUUUT even after 2 days of scrubbing with everything I still had charcoal dust in my pores. Not worth …

There was one period of time where I was literally losing tufts of hair everyday. It was serious. No amounts of clarifying shampoos or hair masks helped; topical hair loss solutions only gave very mild results. I decided to apply activated charcoal paste (just activated charcoal powder/tablets mixed with water) all over my scalp, left it overnight and washed it off in the morning. After about 2-3 …Read more

There's already a review for activated charcoal under "Masks," but I recently read a tip that advised trying activated charcoal for tooth whitening. Now, I'm a dedicated coffee drinker and I like my red wine, so my teeth aren't dazzlin' white, or whatever PLUS I get excited about trying new things, so I immediately went to Amazon and ordered my bag of coconut-shell …Read more
