Summer is in full swing. So our body tends to sweat more and accumulate dirt and grime throughout the day. Hence we have to have a good cleanser which can deeply cleanse all the gunk out of our skin. Activated charcoal is known for deep cleaning. I have been using charcoal face wash and face mask for my oily prone skin and I love the effect it leaves on my skin. So I was looking for a charcoal based cleanser to clean my body too. And I finally got one activated charcoal soap from the brand VYA Naturals. The brand is kind enough to send me two of their products to try out. So today I am going to review their Activated Charcoal and Cedarwood soap.
Before jumping to the review let me share little about the brand – Vya Naturals
Vya Naturals products are formulated using natural ingredients that are not only safe and non-toxic but also effective. All formulations are original, created by the brand, and tested on people, not animals. Vya Naturals uses therapeutic- grade essential oils, natural plant-based butters, natural clays and plant-based waxes. And they definitely DO NOT use parabens, sulfates, artificial colors, artificial dyes, mineral oils, formaldehyde, animal ingredients, artificial scents, phthalates, chemicals, fillers, mineral oils, or petroleum.
The brand name stands for
- Vimal (pure)
- Yajus (reverence)
- Ayush (healthy life)
Vya is reverence for a pure and healthy life.
INR: 295/- for 30ml. but now available on Amazon for 265/-
The soap comes in a black paper packaging which carries all the information related to the soap. When you open the paper packaging you can see that the soap is wrapped in a thin plastic which locks up the freshness. Vya Naturals Activated Charcoal & Cedarwood soap is 100% naturals and it is the best tool for maintaining healthy glowing skin. They make this soap the old fashioned way by hand, using only the purest ingredients and only in small batches. This soap is free from paraben, harsh chemical and artificial fragrance which is a big Yay! for me.
WHAT MAKES ACTIVATED CHARCOAL SOAP SO SPECIAL?
– Activated Charcoal has a higher capacity to absorb dirt and oil, leaving your skin clean and also help eliminate acne, blackheads, and blocked pores
– Shea Butter along with skin loving oils of coconut, olive, and sweet almond leave your skin moisturized and soft for a more youthful appearance.
– Pure essential oils of cedarwood, neroli and cinnamon leaf further protect your skin thanks to their antibacterial, deodorizing and antifungal properties.
– Pure coconut oil, olive oil, and sweet almond oil have high levels of Vitamin A and E, antioxidants and squalene, all of which keep your skin looking youthful and hydrated
100% Natural Ingredients with ZERO ANIMAL TESTING
This activated charcoal and cederwood soap is a charcoal black in color. When I first sniffed it, it smelt like cederwood. The fragrance is very mild and refreshing. I don’t think it would hurt your sensitive nose or give you any sort of a headache.
My face has oily to combination skin, whereas the skin on the rest of the body is normal to dry. But in summer it acts a little oily than the normal. Because of the excessive sweat, it accumulates pollution and dirt throughout the day which I feel, needs to be cleaned at the end of the day to let the skin of our body breath. I have been using this soap for a week now. It lathers up pretty well. It cleanses my skin deeply without drying out it. I really love how my skin feels squeaky clean after use and I’m too happy that it doesn’t irritate my skin and also leaves the skin well hydrated.
