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.

Although formulated specifically as a facial cleanser, this soap is suitable for face + body. Some customers have reported it also works great as a shampoo bar!

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.

Lovely and not drying!

I was split between which of the three soaps to buy and was worried that this one would be too drying, but went with it given my chronic acne I've been trying to address while moving away from prescription acne medicines. Given the hot humid summer weather, sweating much more often and using face oils afterwards it has been perfect and not drying at all! I use it morning and night and its the perfect balance of cleansing for my skin/makes it really feel like its addressing my acne unlike other face washes I've used in the past

The Apoterra Soaps are amazing!!!

I just started using Apoterra on last november thanks to limitless beauty collective in Panama, Central America!. I love the soaps, I even use them for my body and intimates. Also for washing my face before/after makeup. The night serum I use it before my night generative balm and they are absolutely wonderful!. In the mornings my face feel so soft that it is truly great!.

Day 2 and already seeing results

I've used this bar for two days and I've already seen an improvement in my acne. Stress and hormones have led to painful, red acne all over my chin and jawline. After just two days I've seen of marked reduction in size, redness and pain in the bumps on my chin. This is a lifesaver. I'm so happy I found this.
