Activated Charcoal // This is a charcoal that has been treated with oxygen which creates more active regions to chemically bind with impurities (hence it is called “activated” charcoal!). When applied topically, activated charcoal binds to dirt, oil and toxins, detoxifying the skin. Great for facial cleansers and masks that target cleansing the pores to prevent break outs.

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

Neem oil // The neem tree has been used in India as a medicinal herb for thousands of years and is still used today in Ayuverdic practices. The oil is rich, fragrant, and useful for problematic skin because of its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Dead Sea Salt // Dead Sea salt is rich in minerals like magnesium, calcium and bromide which, unlike sodium chloride which is what regular sea salt is made of, actually helps hydrate the skin. These minerals, when absorbed in the skin, also stimulate detoxification, reduce inflammation, help improve acne and psoriasis, and improve skin barrier function.

Refreshing and so clean!

Both my husband and I (I'm combination skin and he's oily in the summer and dry in the winter) love this soap. It's smells delightful and although the charcoal is black by nature, doesn't seem to ruin the bath tile as we just rinse off the bar after use. I alternate use with the carrot not to dry my face out but it makes my skin soft and leaves me feeling refreshed.

Simply the Best Acne Fighting Cleanser!

This product is the best! It has helped my skin a ton! I've bee struggling with all sorts of different types of acne from little bumps to big cystic ones and its helped them all! Plus it's super cheap and lasts FOREVER! I like to cut smaller chunks off to use a portion at a time which helps it last longer and also makes it nice for travel! I love how pure the ingredients are so I don't need to worry about adding a toxin to my body!

The best soap ever.

I love all of Apoterra's soaps, but this one is my favorite. My skin just feels so smooth and clean, and it is not drying at all for my combination skin. The scent is so refreshing and clean as well. It's a great value as it lasts longer than other soaps.

It does exactly what it says it will do

I have tried many soaps but this charcoal and dead sea salt works amazing. It is clearing up my adult acne without over drying. The bar of soap also lasts a long time. I cut it up and use small pieces. It is well priced and I highly recommend this soap if your fighting acne.

Amazing soap!!!

I love how this soap makes my skin feel clean, but not stripped. I’m sure it’s the combination of products, but my skin texture has completely changed for the better! I still have breakouts, about a month in, but I can feel it getting better.

Also worth noting, I have had an acne patch, almost rash like on my chest for probably about a year. It’s gone now. This soap is all I used on it. It’s great stuff!
