Prana Activated Charcoal Masque

Size: 2oz/60ml
Bamboo charcoal ash acts as magnet to help absorb deep impurities that cause breakouts and inflammation. Eliminating aggressors, toxins, impurities, and other harmful substances from your skin, Activated Charcoal Masque will maximize skin regenerating performance by allowing healthy cellular growth. Like all products in the Truth In Aging store, Activated Charcoal Masque has been tested by the Truth In Aging community so you can trust that it works.

In the early days of Truth In Aging, I tried to track down a really good charcoal cleanser. Charcoal is extremely efficient at absorbing impurities. In Japan, it is a favorite spa and public bath house product that seems to pop up in all sorts of things, such as toothpaste and even cotton buds.

I never really succeeded in my quest, but now I may have found something even better – a charcoal cleansing mask. Prana’s Activated Charcoal Masque ($80) is a wonderful skin refresher that gives the skin a healthy glow. Although this is not an exfoliating mask, it does leave the skin looking polished.

The charcoal in Prana’s mask is from bamboo. Soot actually does make your skin cleaner. Here’s how it works. The charcoal is "activated" by processing it at very high temperatures. This changes its internal structure, making it more porous. The charcoal's porous texture has a negative electrical charge, which causes it to attract positively charged molecules, such as toxins and gases (source). It is so good at trapping toxins that it is sometimes used in emergency rooms to treat overdoses.

Bamboo charcoal ash can absorb impurities that cause breakouts and inflammation. Their removal will maximize the skins regenerating performance by allowing healthy cellular growth.

Prana has added a ton of skin enriching botanicals, some of them organic, as well as DMAE, B vitamins and two exfoliating ingredients (mandelic acid and willow bark). And there are no nasties.

Prana Activated Charcoal Masque dries on the skin in the way that a clay mask does. After rinsing off, my skin looks clear and clean with pores nicely reduced. I have slightly oily skin and the mask makes it feel and look nicely balanced. I do, however, need to use a moisturizer afterwards.
