The charcoal has been used medicinally for more than 2,000 years. It has been used for all kinds of things, from cleaning wounds to filtering water. And when a bright spark in the 18th century discovered that so-called activated charcoal can protect us from toxins, there was no going back: the next step was adding it to soap.

Like acne, psoriasis is an unpleasant skin condition that can damage our self-esteem. Psoriasis can cover many parts of the body, and when you are in the mood it can be unstoppable.

Charcoal soap can also treat eczema and dry skin, and it may even prevent your condition from returning.
