Binchotan White Charcoal Powder is a traditional, Japanese charcoal that is completely different from typical black charcoal. The starting material is Ubame Oak (Quercus phillyraeoides), a tree possessing great strength and hardness.

The wood is heated to temperatures upward of 1000°C (1832 °F), followed by a covering with a moist mixture of earth, sand and ash to cool it. This gives a whitish hue to the charcoal surface, thus the name "white charcoal". The resultant charcoal contains a variety of minerals that were absorbed during its life as a tree.

The rapid rise in temperature, followed by a rapid cooling, incinerates the bark and leaves a smooth, hard and highly adsorptive surface. When used it can adsorb chemical substances such as impurities and oil on the skin and hair, making it a useful ingredient in soaps, shampoos, body scrubs, face masks and cosmetic products.

The highly adsorptive properties of Binchotan Charcoal provide a purifying and balancing effect on sensitive skin. Binchotan Charcoal is known to:

  • Purify and balance skin
    Enhance blood circulation
    Capture moisture
    Capture odors
    Elicit a sense of well-being
    Adsorb impurities and oils from skin and hair
  • Please Note: 
    This product's inherent color is black despite having "White" in the name
