Charcoal Thieves



The activated charcoal in this black soap draws dirt and impurities from skin like nothing else. Some youths who have been using it recently say it helped with their acne.

This soap has been what they call French Milled and for some unknown reason, that raises the price in some markets, but not here. It’s a high-falutin way of saying we made it cold process, then rebatched it in a crockpot.

It’s called “Thieves” after a bunch of perfumists in the 14th century who figured out a concoction of essential oils that kept them from getting the Bubonic plague while they robbed the dead victims. Also known as the Black Death, it killed an estimated 50 million people in Europe, 25-60 percent of the population.

Ingredients: Cosmetic-grade activated charcoal; castor, coconut, olive and palm oils; rainwater, lye; and a proprietary blend of essential oils.
