You might have seen an activated charcoal product or two in the skincare aisle or online, most likely as some kind of mask. Perhaps you’ve even used one before. Private label skincare products containing activated charcoal are usually black or a dark grey in appearance, and typically marketed as being detoxifying. But what exactly is activated charcoal, and why is it something you would want to use in your skincare routine? What are the pros and cons (if any), and is it any different than using clay instead? Here’s the RSL breakdown:
When it comes to private label skincare, one of the things, if not the most important thing, to consider is the active ingredients within the formula. The higher the quality of these actives, the higher their percentage within the formula and the more strategically they are combined leads to better, more effective skincare. After all, it’s the actives that do all the work for your skin in the first place! Percentage of actives is one of the main things that sets different brands and products apart- it’s that important. So we thought, why not make a product out of 100% active ingredients?
