The Activated Charcoal Cleanser is an incredibly absorbent, refreshing one-step cleanser which is packed with extracts, vitamins and oils that will moisturize so as not to destroy your lipid barrier, while the charcoal deeply cleans all the bacteria away. This Activated Charcoal Cleanser is very effective for blemished, oily, combination and normal skin types. It contains both a cream-based cleanser and surfactants.
Ingredient-wise, the cleanser is composed of oils, fats and mild surfactants, which are mild and effective cleansing agents. Oils and fats are actually complex compounds called triglycerides. All oils and fats are mixtures of triglycerides with different fatty acids attached. To further explain, an oil molecule is formed from one glycerin molecule and three fatty acid molecules. All fatty acid molecules are lipophilic and hydrophilic. Lipophilic means that a substance has a great affinity for oil, while hydrophilic means that a substance has a great affinity for water. The glycerin component of an oil or fat is an alcohol with three locations on its molecule where the hydrophilic molecule of the fatty acid attaches.
