Tea Tree & Activated Charcoal Tallow Soap


Our charcoal soap started as a light facial scrub called “Al Andaluz” because I was inspired by the charcoal scrubs done at ancient Arab baths in my home, Seville. It remains our most popular product to take on facial acne caused by oily skin or clogged pores but is enriched with beef tallow and beetroot for reducing red skin and inflammation. So, it nourishes even as it unclogs pores and takes on oily skin. Athletes and laborers applaud its gentle exfoliation that helps to take off the day’s work grit and grime while being soft enough for gentle skin. 

This  is by definition my most favourite Morning Cleanser. Originally called Al-Andalus Baths I wanted to create an experience in which you imagine yourself in an arabic looking bath. That smell of citrus brought by the combination of Bergamot pairs really well with the freshness of Tea Tree.

Activate Charcoal has a long history as an ingredient used to drawn toxins out of the skin. But also a wrongly consideration that it might break up your skin.

That is WRONG in this special case. In general, Charcoal will absorb the water content surrounding it, as I see it happen in the soap making process. But after many changes, this soap needed to have added Tallow as the first ingredient to balance out that effect.

Activated Charcoal with Tallow and Avocado Oil create the perfect combination to cleanse your skin of unwanted toxins at the same time it balances out your oils without stripping your face out  completely.

Do I recommend it to People with Oily Skin? Yes, in case of Body. It goes well with active and sportive people (cleans better those toxins brought up by the sweat).

Do I recommend this product for Facial Cleanse before a moisturizer? Absolutely Yes. I do recommend to clean the face to clear the pores out of pollution sitting on our always uncovered face. Choose Morning or Night Time for a lovely fresh experience.

Do I recommend this produc for Gardener Hands? Oh yeah, as it will draw out the dirt much easier. In this case I also recomment a highly moisturizing Tallow Balm to give back what the soil took away.

Would I recomment this product to people with mature and really sensitive skin? I would NOT be my first option. This is, at the end of the day, a product more adecuate for people with Acne and a skin prone to oily. Otherwise, the person would need an intense moisturizer to follow!
