The Body Shop presents the strength of active bamboo charcoal!

By on March 6, 2018

Active carbon is today’s hottest beauty ingredient. Thanks to its high absorption capacity, it is extra effective for thorough skin cleansing – and through The Body Shop it also makes a difference in the world.

WHAT MAKES CHARCOAL SO GREAT?

Active carbon has physical properties that make it superior to absorbent. It is often used in air and water filters and medically at poisoning. And with such cleansing properties it has also become popular in health food and beauty products. Active carbon works like a magnet that attracts impurities, toxins and tallow surpluses from the skin.

“Active carbon has been used for decades for its detoxifying properties, and today you’ll find the effective bamboo charcoal in everything from toothbrushes and cocktails to the latest beauty products. A perfect example of the best of traditional medicine and modern skin science. The fast growing bamboo is also an environmentally friendly material. Instead of harvesting it with the root, you cut it so that it can grow up quickly.”
– Jennifer Hirsch, Beauty Botanist at The Body Shop

WHEN YOU BUY HIMALAYAN CHARCOAL PURIFYING GLOW MASK AND NEW HIMALAYAN CHARCOAL PURIFYING FACIAL SOAP YOU HELP THE RED PANDA NETWORK TO SAVE THREATENED RED PANDAS IN HIMALAYA.

Every purchase you make helps protect the threatened red pandas and their habitat. The Body Shop collaborates with the Red Panda Network in Nepal with the aim of planting more food for red pandas and recreating forests using natural spreading corridors (biobroar). The Body Shops bamboo is grown and harvested in a way that ensures that the access of the red pandas food is not reduced. For each sold face mask and soap, The Body Shop donates 3 kronor to the Red Panda Network.

 

FARM GROWN BAMBOO CHARCOAL FROM THE HIMALAYAN FOOTHILLS

The Body Shop procures the bamboo charcoal from areas at the foot of the Himalayas. Bambun is cut after four years when there is a large and safe amount of it. As one of the fastest growing plants in the world, bamboo can grow three to five centimeters an hour, making it a very environmentally friendly material.
