Activated charcoal chemically binds other substances to its surface and hold them there, so molecules adhere just to the surface of the activated carbon. This is called “adsorption” (not the same as absorption where one substance is incorporated into another).
Charcoal can adsorb thousands of times its own weight. As mentioned before, it also has an incredibly large surface area due to all its pores – one cubic inch of charcoal has the surface area equivalent to a 150,000 square-foot field which is a lot of adsorption power!
That’s why just a bit of charcoal can absorb so many toxins from our skin.
People have been using activated charcoal for thousands of years. Its detoxifying properties have been used by ancient Egyptians or Native Americans. In the early 20th century, activated charcoal was used to remove the colour of sugar, was even used in World War I in gas masks to prevent soldiers from being poisoned by chemical exposure.
