Once upon a time, charcoal was what our fathers threw under our grills during a cookout. But now the stuff is popping up in our skin care, and truth be told, it's a pretty exciting development. As a skin care ingredient, charcoal works to draw out all the impurities that get trapped in our pores. After one use, your skin looks instantly clearer, more refined, and even feels smoother. Here you'll find a range of products, from blotting papers to soaps, to start you on your charcoal journey.
