Charcoal CRUSH

2 GRADES OF EXFOLIANTS & 1 ACTIVE POWDER FOR SKIN, HAIR & BODY

Sustainable charcoal powder for cosmetics made from upcycled fencing offcuts

Known for its oil-absorbent and cleansing properties - and its intense black pigment - Charcoal is a versatile ingredient that lends itself to a variety of personal care applications. Made from small pieces of leftover charcoal - derived from oak fencing offcuts - the Charcoal CRUSH collection comprises 3 unique grades including skincare scrubs and an active powder.

Charcoal shards used for sustainable charcoal powder

A truly zero waste process

Charcoal CRUSH is made from small fragments leftover from the production of charcoal, used for cooking and heating. But there's a bigger story...

The charcoal is made from 100% sustainably harvested oak. More specifically - upcycled oak offcuts; leftovers from the production of cleft oak fencing.

The oak is transformed into charcoal. Any small charcoal pieces, where are not suitable for cooking, are collected into bags by hand and rolled in a ball mill to break up the particles. The particles are then sieved to size grade.

Any remaining leftovers from the sieving process are used for animal feed (which aids digestion), ensuring that absolutely nothing goes to waste.
