The activated carbon comes from pieces of the fast-growing bamboo moss – Phyllostachys edulis. As the bamboo moss matures, millions of tiny pores form on its stems. These tiny holes increase the surface area of the bamboo and add to its ability to absorb large amounts of bacteria, toxins and micro-particles.
Activated carbon (bamboo) if pulverized and vaporized further increases the attraction force due to its wider surface area, allowing it to absorb a larger volume of bacteria, dirt and microparticles.
Due to its antibacterial and exfoliating properties, as well as its ability to deeply cleanse, bamboo charcoal is excellent for people with acne, problem skin or oily and combination skin. It helps to clog skin pores, regulate the secretion of sebum and oil, fight blemishes and blackheads, leaving the skin extremely clean, soft and smooth. At the same time, it eliminates any impurities-dirt and neutralizes the odor of the skin.
In hair care, activated charcoal (bamboo) deeply cleanses the hair and scalp, removes dirt and dirt, absorbs unnecessary oil, but without removing the hair’s natural oils. Its antimicrobial properties help in scalp problems, stimulate circulation resulting in the promotion of hair growth and the prevention of hair loss.
