This soap is not only stunningly black, but the charcoal gives it great cleansing properties. Activated charcoal is great in facial masks because it has the amazing ability to control facial oil and draw away the impurities that build up in the pores. In soap, it is effective in the removal of oils and dead cells, thus providing clean skin. Each of our bars is approximately 2.75" x 3.50" x 1.00" thick and an average of more than 4 oz. each.
