KNESKO’s Black Pearl Detox Collection features activated bamboo charcoal, an all-natural ingredient that is taking the modern skincare industry by storm. As popular as it is right now, bamboo charcoal has been used in healing and beauty rituals for centuries. Ming Dynasty Chinese physicians used “the black diamond” to create medicines, filter water for tea, and infuse potions with age-defying minerals such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium.
These ancient healers knew what they were doing, as contemporary scientists have proven that bamboo charcoal helps draw out chemicals, bacteria, oil, dirt, and other toxins trapped within skin to help a more flawless complexion shine through.
What Is Bamboo Charcoal?
Bamboo charcoal is made from Phyllostachys edulis, or moso bamboo. As the moso bamboo stalk ages, it develops millions of tiny pores that increase it’s surface area exponentially. When the stalk is completely mature, its harvested, cut into pieces, and fired at 1800 degrees Fahrenheit.
The remaining charcoal is then “activated” by being ground into a powder and injected with steam. This activation process increases the charcoal’s surface area even more. This substantial surface area is what gives activated bamboo charcoal its value, as it allows the powder to adsorb an incredible volume of toxins, bacteria, and micro particles.
The Power of Adsorption
Yes- you read that right! “Adsorb” is not a typing error. There is a big difference between absorption and adsorption, which means a big difference to how bamboo charcoal interacts with your skin.
Absorption is the process in which toxins or chemicals pass into and become part of the absorbing material, similar to the way a sponge absorbs water. Adsorption, on the other hand, is the process when toxins or chemicals simply adhere to the surface of the adsorbing material, similar to when you cover a cut with a bandage and the bandage simply adheres to the surface of your skin.
Bamboo charcoal adsorbs toxins and chemicals, acting like a magnet that attracts and removes impurities from deep within your skin’s layers. Adsorption allows you to wash away toxins that the bamboo charcoal draws out while also enjoying other healing benefits of this powerful ingredient.
What Does This Mean For Your Skin?
Because of its natural adsorption properties and large surface area, bamboo charcoal is a natural detoxifier; adept at naturally drawing out and removing dirt, debris, and other impurities.
Activated bamboo charcoal also provides:
- Gentle exfoliation
- Natural deep cleaning
- Antibacterial, antimicrobial, antifungal and antiviral protection
- Acne prevention and treatment
