Activated charcoal, also called activated carbon, is a fine black powder that’s produced when common charcoal is exposed to high heat. This exposure creates tiny internal spaces or holes in the charcoal, making it highly absorbent and able to trap chemicals and toxins. Although it’s a type of charcoal, activated charcoal is different from the charcoal used on an outdoor grill. Because of activated charcoal’s ability to absorb bacteria and toxins in the body, charcoal face mask can help draw impurities from the skin. Acne is caused by a build-up of dead skin cells, oil, and bacteria that gets trapped inside the pores in your skin. Acne-causing bacteria can trigger pimples and other inflammatory lesions, resulting in irritation, redness, and swelling. The antibacterial properties of activated charcoal, however, may help lift bacteria from the pores. This may help with reducing acne and improving overall skin complexion.
Salix alba (Willow bark) – Willow Bark Extract contains salicylic acid, a BHA that is a natural exfoliant and is used in many acne treatments because of its ability to help skin shed dead cells and clear pores; it can also stimulate new cell formation. Willow Bark Extract also contains “phenolic acids; such as salicin, salicortin, fragilin, populin, triandrin and vimalin, as well as flavonoids, tannins (gallotannins and catechin-type tannins) and minerals,” which all allow it to aid in skin rejuvenation.
Papaya contains the proteolytic enzyme papain which helps to gently breakdown and digest large proteins that have accumulated on the skin. It’s known as a “skin-debriding agent” for this reason, contributing to the breakdown of protein in the skin, helping to remove damaged skin cells, allowing the healthy tissue to heal. The papain found in papaya is attributed with soothing skin irritations and its anti-inflammatory properties make it an ideal ingredient for acne and blemish-prone skin. Its natural and effective exfoliating properties brighten the skin by removing dead skin cells and flaky patches on the top layer of your skin. Papaya can also help with hyperpigmentation which can occur after breakouts and can help the skin to recover after any scarring. The combination of enzymes, phytochemicals and high beta-carotene content helps to brighten the skin and repair the skin’s natural complexion.
Pineapple extracts contain bromelain, a mix of enzymes, and are used in skincare as bromelain helps to gently exfoliate the skin. The enzymes found in pineapple can slough away dead skin cells and reduce the appearance of blackheads, which means it’s ideal for anyone struggling with persistent spots.
