I’m really glad that OXY has followed suit of other skin care brands and released a charcoal 3 in 1 facial product. The benefits are charcoal on the skin is truly a miracle. Here are some to name a few: Charcoals help in removing the dirt, from the pores and give your skin a thorough cleansing. These masks also control the oil secretion in your skin, making it perfect for skin prone to blackheads and acne. Activated charcoal draws bacteria, toxins, dirt and oil from the skin. After the first wash my skin felt more clean and soft.
Ideal for those with problem and oily skin, OXY CHARCOAL 3 in 1 can be used as a wash, a scrub and a mask.
“Activated charcoal is a wonder ingredient,” says Dr Mathobela, a leading specialist dermatologist and OXY’s resident skincare expert. “It draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of one’s skin, helping to achieve a flawless complexion while fighting acne.” The charcoal is not metabolised, adsorbed or absorbed by the body.
Rich in natural moisturisers and other extracts, OXY CHARCOAL 3 in 1 ensures the skin is left soft and smooth, clean and healthy.
- Biodegradable metabeads for gentle, yet effective, exfoliation of the skin leaving it with a far smoother appearance.
- A combination of almond and olive oil act as moisturising agents, helping to effectively moisturise the skin.
- Charcoal helps to unclog the pores and detox the skin, leaving skin looking clearer and more purified thereby enhancing skin tone.
- At an inclusion rate of 15%, Kaolin reduces excess sebum and skin breakouts by absorbing excess oil and helping to unclog pores.
- Salicylic Acid acts to remove all excess sebum and eliminate impurities.
