About Japanese Charcoal

Charcoal and cleansing are two things which might not seem to go together, though Japanese have known the purifying effects of charcoal for centuries.

Bamboo sumi charcoal, also called takesumi, is highly porous carbon. It is very conductive and exhibits exceptional properties for releasing negative ions and electromagnetic wave absorption.

First, raw bamboos are cut to about one-meter size and laid to dry for about three months. Then, the cuttings are heated in earthen kilns at 800 to 1,000 degrees Celsius for 28 days. Next, they are ground into a fine powder with microscopic pores in a mesh-like crystalline structure. 

When incorporated into soap, this micro-pore mesh of the carbon powder traps skin's toxins and other organic impurities, which get washed away as you rinse.

    Super awesome addition to my skincare routine along with Yomogi soap.

    Posted by Min Raj on 29th May 2021

    I usually use Yomogi soap in the morning and this charcoal soap in the night. After a whole day of exposing my skin to a lot of harmful particles, it does a really really good job of clearing out all the oil and dust from skin and makes your skin feel super fresh again. I recommend everybody to use this charcoal soap and Yomogi soap as a first step of their skin care routine.

    Sumi Charcoal soap

    Posted by Mark Dunkerton on 25th May 2020

    I am a male and have been using Wawaza oils for a while now with great results. This Charcoal soap which I have just started to use is so good. Its gentle on the skin and leaves a very moisturising feel when rinsed off, I use it every day before shaving. Thank you Wawaza!

    Absolutely amazing <3

    Posted by Sameera on 15th Jan 2018

    I virtually never write reviews but this soap is absolutely amazing. It cleanses extremely well and doesn't leave a residue on my skin either. I noticed my skin has felt cleaner, softer, and glows whenever I step out of the shower! My skin has not looked like this in years. The best part is, the ingredients are simple and not hard to pronounce chemicals! Arigatou gozaimasu, Wawaza, for your absolutely amazing customer service, amazing products, and quick delivery times! I cannot thank you all enough!

    Excellent soap

    Posted by MT on 8th Nov 2017

    My body has overall normal/bit dry skin and my face is normal with oily-sensitive t-zone. I used this soap daily and it caused absolutely no dryness or irritation to my body or face, while leaving a clean feeling. The soap also lathers very well and lasts long. Will be trying other soaps from Wawaza next!

    I received a wonderful sample of this soap and I am quite impressed. Eventhough I do not have oily skin as I did when I was a youth, and very rarely get any breakouts anymore, my dusty work environment has left some buildup on my skin. For my very first try/use of this soap, not only did it get rid of the grime from work, but instantly took out the redness my skin had from sensitivity to work related conditions. This is perfect for my weekly routine. Thank you for a wonderful product

    It's fine.

    Posted by Nina S. on 28th Sep 2015

    This soap is alright. As it was made from charcoal, I expected it to be a little powdery, but it's soapy. It has a nice lather though.

    Good acne prone cleanser

    Posted by From SG on 27th Jul 2015

    Fast delivery. Received it in a cute packaging on the third day. There are even free gift tat comes along !! Firstly, I have acne prone skin, it lighten my skin tone and leave my skin squeaky clean. Really good cleanser but it takes time to create a lather. I used the Petite-Lady-Aoi-Kimono-Silk-Body-and-Face- Sponge which came along to more easily create lather. will continue to use to see whether it will clears my acne.

    Holy grail facial cleanser

    Posted by LC on 1st Mar 2014

    My search is over. I've tried all sorts of cleansing methods (drugstore brands, prescription, natural, oil cleansing and even no cleansing/water only) over the past 15 years and nothing has improved my non inflamed acne as much as this bar! I've only used a few bar soaps in the past on my face and they dried me out horribly. This leaves my face squeaky clean (which scared me at first), but did not dry out my skin. My skin is brighter, more even toned and has significantly less blocked pores. It feels sooo smooth to the touch. I've been using it every night for 3 weeks. Bonus: it's an amazing body cleanser too. I no longer need to scrub my skin vigorously after a hard, sweaty workout to eliminate the BO. Just a light lather with my hands does the trick.

    lots of lather and it doesn't over dry

    Posted by Ed from Hayward, CA on 25th Apr 2012

    I love the Japanese charcoal soap because it is so pure and natural. lots of lather and it doesn't over dry. It's the simple joys and the simple solutions that give you the big breaks in life.
