Description: Infinitum Health Soaps have a fresh clean linen fragrance with hints of aloe vera. Contains activated charcoal for removing of unwanted chemicals and toxins on the skin. Our activated charcoal comes from the conflict-free regions of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa.
Common charcoal is made from peat, coal, wood, coconut shell, or petroleum. “Activated charcoal” is similar to common charcoal, but is made especially for use as a medicine. To make activated charcoal, manufacturers heat common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop lots of internal spaces or “pores.” These pores help activated charcoal “trap” chemicals.
Orally, activated charcoal is used to treat poisonings, reduce phenytoin levels, reduce intestinal gas (flatulence), lower cholesterol levels, prevent diarrhea caused by the cancer drug irinotecan, reduce phosphate levels in dialysis, prevent hangover, calm upset stomach and treat bile flow problems (cholestasis) during pregnancy.
Activated charcoal is also used topically in bandages for helping heal wounds and to improve the appearance of skin.(1)
