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.
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!
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
They delivered my order super fast! Soooo smooth with lots of lather and it didn't dry my skin at all. Very impressed.
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.
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.
Frist of all thank you for the quick delivery. I received this amazing soap and coudnt wait to try it out. Its really amazing soap it made my skin brighter, it didnt make my skin dry.. feels fresh and young...my search is over. loved it... Best cleanser. Thank you. cant wait to buy more...
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.
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.
