Activated charcoal consists of high density skeleton carbon structures which absorb contaminants and toxins and purify. Activated charcoal is used for treating water and in cosmetics such as toothpaste, masks and scrubs.

Often referred to by its more scientific name activated carbon; activated charcoal is a natural material rich in carbon whereby the pores of the charred material have been opened through a steam activation process, increasing the carbon’s surface area. Activated carbon is characterised by its high porosity and adsorptive capabilities. Through adsorption, activated carbon can effectively remove a range of contaminants and impurities from liquid and air streams.

Activated Charcoal

I think it was my second time buying this product. It works very good if i mix it with other ingredients to produce our good products. I will never go anywhere looking for this product other than getting on Natural Essentially. Your product is 100% safe and good

Activated Charcoal

Charcoal is very good for internal use, but this brand got an after taste of fish.

Get rid of toxins

I have organic raised beds with sandy loam soil. Needed organic compost and trusted a supplier. The compost burned and killed my plants. I am now going to put a layer of activated Charcoal on the beds to get rid of the toxins. Thank you Essetially Natural,hopefully the beds will be ready for planting in September.
