Organika Activated Charcoal
Activated Charcoal is a staple in homeopathic medicine as a Carbon-based supplement.
It is prepared by igniting a pile of dry beech or birch wood which is then covered by a thick layer of soil. This slows the burning process down and increases the intensity of the heat. The combustion process takes place with very little oxygen present, and the wood is converted into volatile compounds and the remaining charcoal, which consists mainly of carbon.
Traditionally used often as an acute remedy for indigestion, flatulence or venous congestion.
Organika’s Activated Charcoal powder is an all-natural product to help clean up and revamp your beauty routine. Activated charcoal is versatile, cruelty-free, and sustainably sourced. It can be mixed with water and used as a face mask or brushed on teeth for a quick and effective whitening treatment.
Organika’s Activated Charcoal is uniquely treated with oxygen to expand the product’s carbon pore size, which in turn creates a larger surface area that traps more toxins—a process referred to as “activation.” To give you a reference, 1 gram of Activated Charcoal has 32,000 ft^2 of surface area which is equal to seven hockey rinks. Activated Charcoal has millions of tiny pores where through the process called “adsorption,” elements, toxins, and surface stains get trapped inside the charcoal.
Traditionally Activated Charcoal as an ingredient has been used in medicine since the early 1500’s as a safe and effective way to capture and dispose of toxins from the body naturally. With the help of a process called “adsorption,” medical professionals have been using charcoal for centuries to treat a variety of ailments, from poisoning, treating wounds and detoxification of the complex digestive tract.
