Living Naturally Activated Charcoal Organic Soapnut Bar is an artisan soap bar made using activated charcoal to draw out impurities and deep cleanse skin. Excellent for gardeners and those with cracked skin, this soap moisturises and detoxifies as it cleanses.
Suitable for all skin types, especially for acne-prone, oily or combination skin.
Activated charcoal is an extremely effective and gentle ingredient to draw out toxins, cleanse dirt and oils, refining and clarifying your complexion with its minerals.
Organic shea butter is deployed for its rich concentration of fatty acids and vitamins, nourishing and moisturising skin.
Organic avocado oil is packed full of vitamin A, and has a high content of vitamin E, as well as vitamins B, C, D and K. Its vitamin E content ensures deeper hydration than coconut oil with its high content of monsaturated fat content. It also modulates the immune system and calms inflammation, thanks to its high content of sterolin compounds. These compounds are ideal for treating inflammatory skin conditions including eczema and troubled skin, as well as healing age spots and sun damage.
Vitamin E is added for its nourishing and skin healing properties as an effective antioxidant.
Living Naturally won Silver at the Free From Skincare Awards 2016 for this product. Below are a selection of comments from the judges:
"Lathers up fantastically well and easily. Yes, it does do the job very well, although it does seem a bit counter-intuitive to use a black soap for cleansing. I was pleasantly surprised that this soap doesn’t leave my skin at all dry and doesn't irritate it at all. I always moisturise, but didn't need to use any more than usual after having washed with this soap. The soap has not broken, bent or anything untoward. However, it's reduced in size far more quickly than our bar soap usually does which could well be a refelction of the fact that the whole family seems to have used it. "
"Loved the packaging, loved that it's vegan, it could make a cute gift too. Unusual in it's appearance and scent and this was a good thing. Very unique. Nice.
