Charcoal Face Masks

Wherever you live, especially if you live in a large city or travel frequently, your skin is exposed to many different toxins and pollutants. These contaminants can find their way deep into your pores, clogging your skin and creating dullness, blackheads, and accelerated signs of aging. In order to fight these tough toxins, you need to combat it with an equally powerful cleansing regime. Adding charcoal-based face masks to your weekly routine is a safe, effective way to detoxify your skin and unmask its natural glow.

Charcoal Mask Benefits


Charcoal is a powerful, natural substance that has long been known for its ability to absorb and remove tough toxins. For many years it has been used to purify drinking water, filter the air we breathe and even remove poisons from our bodies. Now, activated charcoal is taking its rightful place in the skincare industry to help those of us looking for relief from acne, dark spots, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Like a sponge for impurities, activated charcoal seeps deep into your pores and soaks up dirt, oil and other microparticles that are hiding in there. After your first charcoal-infused face mask, you’ll be left with skin that feels purified, clean, and healthy.

Normal Charcoal vs. Activated Charcoal


While charcoal is a natural filtration system, applying it to your skin in its solid form won’t do much good. Scientists and skin care experts have learned to activate charcoal to make it more potent for use in beauty treatments. This involves a method of grinding the charcoal into powder, then treating it with oxygen to increases its porosity. This process causes it to take on a sponge-like form. By increasing its porosity, they are lengthening the surface area available to extract chemicals, toxins, and dirt. For perspective, just one gram of activated charcoal can have about 1,000 square meters of surface area—that’s enough to cover four tennis courts. Because of this process, a single charcoal mask is powerful enough to clear even the most deeply-clogged pores.  

Knowing Where Your Charcoal Is Sourced
Charcoal is the result of wood or other materials that have been through a long, steady heating process. Understanding what materials were burned to create the charcoal used in your face mask can help you choose a product that is ethically-sourced, environmentally-friendly, and free of any additional chemicals or substances you wouldn’t want to introduce to your skin.

At KNESKO, we use activated bamboo charcoal in our Black Pearl Detox Face Masks. Bamboo is a fast-growing plant, making it a sustainable and renewable choice for our charcoal. Activated bamboo charcoal is just as, if not more effective at drawing out and removing impurities from the skin as any other wood-sourced charcoal. This makes activated bamboo charcoal good for your skin and good for the planet.  

A Safe, Natural Way to Detoxify Your Skin
The most enticing property of charcoal is its unique ability to aggressively remove layers of oil, dirt, and toxins from your pores without sacrificing your skin’s natural protective layers. Unlike other potent products that use harsh chemicals, charcoal is completely natural and won’t leave behind any unwanted contaminants during its cleaning process. However, because charcoal is so effective at removing excess oil, some people fear that it will leave their skin feeling dry. That is why we pair our charcoal masks with the natural hydrating powers of black pearls. This unique combination detoxifies your skin while leaving it feeling refreshed and renewed.
