Activated Charcoal // Treated with oxygen to create more active regions to chemically bind with toxins (hence why it is called “activated” charcoal!). When applied topically, activated charcoal soap stick to and pull out dirt, oil and toxins, providing a deep clean that helps prevent breakouts.

Tea Tree essential oil // Shown to have antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal, and immune stimulating properties. Studies have shown that topical application of Tea Tree essential oil can help alleviate acne by killing the bacteria that causes breakouts.

Neem oil // Consider this a centuries old cure-all. The anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties in neem oil are only a portion of what this miracle healer been used for. As the go-to remedy for a multitude of ailments and everyday practices in Indian medicine and ayurvedic practices, neem is rich, fragrant, and potent solve for troubled and irritated skin. It has even been used to brush teeth!

Dead Sea salt // Unlike sodium chloride, which regular sea salt is made of, Dead Sea salt is rich in minerals like magnesium, calcium and bromide which help level out some of the root causes of acne like high cortisol production and hormonal imbalances. These minerals, when absorbed in the skin, also stimulate detoxification, reduce inflammation, and improves how well skin retains moisture.

Wet hands and massage the Activated Charcoal + Dead Sea Salt Soap until a rich, creamy lather forms. Massage the foam into wet skin to gently remove dirt, makeup, SPF, and any other signs of the day. Rinse with warm water or use a warm towelette to remove stubborn makeup. The scent of tea tree and neem oil are refreshing and not overpowering.

Pro Tip: When it comes to acne, congestion and breakouts, it's often believed that drying or scrubbing skin "squeaky clean" will help clear acne and blemishes. We firmly believe that drying the skin does the opposite - it can cause skin barrier damage and aggravate the issue. The best way to address congestion and breakouts is through nourishment that promotes healthy skin without clogging pores or decimating the skin microbiome. This soap will not dry the skin like conventional bar soap and is a great start to a nourishing routine. We recommend following with a hydrating mist like our Neroli Toner and nourishing facial oil. If your skin has a tendency to be dry or sensitive, we recommend only using this soap as an evening cleanser. Use our Neroli Toner or Hibiscus Mud as your morning cleanser instead..

Very Handy

Both my kiddos use this soap for their faces and sometimes it is a hassle for them to pack up the entire regimen to take for sleepovers, so this is a convenient travel sized bar!

Amazing!

This soap smells wonderful, and works wonder in helping me deal with my adult acne.

I have chronic pustules and nodules acne for decades. I can honestly say that I have tried every topical treatment in the market. I understand that this kind of acne is most likely a symptom of other health concerns, but no doctor has been able to diagnose it, let alone cure it.... so my life with deep, painful, peanut-size pustules & nodules continue.

When I first find Apoterra back in Sept-2020, this charcoal soap was sold out, so I was not able to try the full CLARIFY RITUAL as recommended on the website. Instead, I used the pumpkin soap and the rest of the products in the CLARIFY RITUAL for 2 months. During that time, my breakout was getting worst, but the rest of my face was getting softer, more hydrated, and less patchy, so I waited for this soap to get restocked.

In Nov-2020, I was finally able to purchase this soap. Within 1 week of using it with the rest of the CLARIFY RITUAL, my nodules became smaller, heal / disappear faster, making them less likely to break the surface of the sink, creating bloody open wounds on my face.

Yes, those pustules & nodules are still coming, and they likely will not stop until I found out what is wrong with my body as a whole. But this soap and the other Apoterra products help me live with them with less pain and more certainty that I am helping my skin fight on for another day.

Love that's natural but maybe a little to squeaky clean feeling!

I love every product I've tried from Apoterra and I love how fast shipping is! I'm grateful for their pride in creating products that are safe for us and the environment! This bar soap was nice, didn't cause any breakouts but immediately after use I felt my skin was tight and couldn't seem to work quickly enough to introduce moisture back into my face! So 4 stars because I love the ingredients and company but I would prefer to use something else for my skin (face and body).

Deep cleanse without drying my skin out.

I love this facial soap. It really cleans my skin without drying it out. I've used other activated charcoal soaps and they always leave my skin feeling stripped of it's natural oils and very dry. This soap does a great job of cleansing while also keeping my skin feeling soft. I just bought the sample size and I'm very impressed with how long it's lasted.
