activated charcoal benefits

Ever wonder why you can’t find activated charcoal in most home and beauty products? Activated charcoal is a powerful natural ingredient that works by trapping toxins and chemicals in its millions of tiny pores.

Here are seven benefits of using activated charcoal:



Activated charcoal is ideal for eliminating toxins from your body and has the power to clean deep inside sweat glands. With its amazing detoxifying abilities, it is used as a universal antidote for poison in virtually every hospital in the world as well as a great way to cure hangovers and reduce high cholesterol. Activated charcoal is also used to treat drug overdoses as well as in kidney and liver dialysis machines to purify blood before it can enter back into the body.


Teeth Whitener

Activated charcoal is a great way to naturally whiten your teeth for that big up and coming event when you want immediate results.



Due to its porous structure and massive surface area, it makes activated charcoal ideal to remove toxins and draw impurities out of your skin. At kaia naturals, we love to make our own DIY charcoal face masks!



Does your hair feel heavy and weighted down? Use activated charcoal to remove surface dirt, oil, and toxins while adding some volume! It doesn’t leave a residue like most shampoos do so you can be sure that your hair will feel lighter and be more voluminous. Mix it in with your regular shampoo and use it as a scalp treatment to target itchy, red and dandruff-ridden scalps.



Stung by a bee or have a skin irritation? Activated charcoal is accredited to speed up the healing process, bring down swelling and lessen the pain when applied a paste.



Activated charcoal is one of our founder’s favourite ways to deodorize her home. One of Mary’s secrets is to use granulated activated charcoal in her kitty litter. Just a little goes a long way, but it’s so effective in naturally deodorizing that yucky smell! Activated charcoal is also a great deodorizer for water filtration and to take away mold!
