Coal care, keeping beauty pure with Clinique, Erborian, etc

Green oak coal (Binchō-tan) = an absorbing and exfoliating action to cleanse oily skins in a gel scrub, a purifying and mattifying action in a plant-based soap, and has a “dusting” and cleansing effect when using the long-haired brush dipped in an ultra-fine coal powder.

Volcanic ashes + activated coal + mud from the Irish moors + Japanese algae = a black face mask that cleanses and hydrates, absorbs any excess sebum and boosts the epidermis with an uplifting dose of minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants.

Bamboo coal + caffeine + glycerin = a powerful anti-pollution cleanser in a soothing formula. Purifying Charcoal Cleansing gel, 26 euros for 150 ml.
