Route One Pumpkins launches Activated Charcoal Soap, handcrafted with organic vegetable oils, sustainably sourced activated charcoal and peppermint and anise essential oils. This soap has a strong following and reported to help rebalance skin affected by acne, excema and similar skin conditions.

"This soap has quickly become one of our best-sellers at farmers markets with thrilled customers, seeing a real difference in their skin, coming back for more." Sandra Klein, CEO

Route One Pumpkins announces the launch of Activated Charcoal Soap, made with activated charcoal from bamboo (a pure and sustainable resource) in combination with skin-balancing Meadowfoam Seed Oil from the Pacific Northwest, other organic vegetable oils including local pumpkin seed oil and Peppermint and Anise seed essential oils.

Activated charcoal is best known for internal use absorbing toxins and is used to treat poisonings, reduce intestinal gas (flatulence), lower cholesterol levels, prevent hangover, and treat bile flow problems (cholestasis) during pregnancy. To make activated charcoal, manufacturers heat common charcoal in the presence of a gas that causes the charcoal to develop lots of internal spaces or “pores.” These pores help activated charcoal “trap” chemicals.

Route One Pumpkins Activated Charcoal Soap combines the benefits of activated charcoal with organic, skin friendly vegetable oils including pumpkin seed, coconut and sunflower, PLUS amazing meadowfoam seed oil.

Like all Route One Pumpkins soap, Activated Charcoal is handcrafted with organic, food-grade vegetable oils, gluten-free, and free of phthalates and parabens. It is also vegan. And certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny.

Route One Pumpkins Activated Charcoal soap is available as a traditional bar soap as well as a felted soap (in silky-soft alpaca) under our Dirty Hippy Soapworks line. It is available in select stores including Other Avenues San Francisco and online at routeonepumpkins.com, whiterabbitbeauty.com and amazon.com.
