Natural, black colourant.  Our activated charcoal powder comes from various hard woods (a renewable resource) and is made in Binchō-tan style.  It is produced by a high temperature steam activation process and is used in pharmaceutical and the food industries.

Activated Charcoal Powder is used to make beautiful black and rich grey colours in natural soap and many other personal care products.  If used at lower concentration, shades of grey are achieved, at high concentration coal black is the result.
