|Used to colour your soap black, activated charcoal powder has additional benefits other than just the fact it creates a true black in soaps.
This is not the charcoal from a fireplace, but is a by product of burning coconut.
It is used as a detoxifier in soap.
Usage rate of approximately two tablespoons per kilo of soap will give a nice black shade. Reduce quantity if you are seeking a grey tone.
Mix with water or oil first, before adding to your soap mixture.
