DIY Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Body Scrub

August 5, 2016

Updated: August 13th 2018

Get a healthy glow with our homemade exfoliating body scrub recipe

Most beauty products are full of ingredients that you can’t recognize yet alone even pronounce. That’s why for this recipe, we raided the kitchen cupboards for ingredients you’ve heard of, to mix with our activated charcoal powder in this detox exfoliating charcoal body scrub.

We took organic granulated sugar and organic virgin coconut oil and mixed it with Organika® Activated Charcoal Powder for the perfect homemade exfoliant.

Now, we know that beautiful skin comes more from the inside than it does the outside, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of the outside as well. As our skin cells turnover, the top layer skins cells die. Without exfoliation, dead skin cells can block your pores and dull the appearance of your skin.

Exfoliating gently removes dead skin cell debris to speed healthy skin turnover, prevent breakouts and brighten your skin for that healthy glow we’re all after.
