A soap bar usually doesn’t garner much excitement around here, but the Sister & Co. Ultimate Detoxifying Soap Bar with Activated Charcoal has us singing its praises from the roof tops!
Most of us will have heard about the ‘ingredient of the moment’, Activated Charcoal. It is found in a number of kind-to-skin (especially acne prone skin) products, such as these make up brushes. But when you really take a look at what charcoal actually DOES on the skin, it’s quite remarkable and frankly why haven’t we been using it sooner?
How can Activated Charcoal help acne?
Porous Activated Bamboo Charcoal to be precise, acts as a magnet to lift and remove oil, dead skin, toxins and any other impurities from your pores, leaving skin clear and smooth. Ideal for acne prone, combination or oily skin, it’s suitable for use on your face as well as body.
When used frequently as part of your skincare regime it can significantly reduce blemishes and acne flare ups. And the proof is in the pudding: after continued use for 3 weeks Barefaced’s Editor has seen a clear improvement in skin clarity and a drastic reduction of oiliness.
What else is in Sister & Co’s Soap Bar?
The unique soap is blended on a base of shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil and olive oil. This means that it adds softness and hydration to skin rather than drying it out as is often the case with standard detergent-based soap products, making it gentle enough to use everyday.

About Sister & Co. Skin Food
The founder of Sister & Co, Sophie, first discovered the benefits of coconut oil on holiday in India. Converted to the use of raw plant oils to nourish the body from the outside as well as in, she is now behind this natural body and skincare range that also includes scrubs, haircare and lip treatments.
Each and every product is filled with an array of skin loving goodies, including organic cold-pressed plant oils, raw nut butters and milks, sugars, salts, clays, waxes and pure essential oils.
You won’t find any chemical preservatives or fillers, synthetic fragrances or toxins of any kind to artificially alter texture, smell or colour of the range.
The finest extra-virgin coconut oil is used and raw, or minimally processed ingredients are able to remain as potent as they are found in nature at source.
100% natural, vegan, SLS and paraben-free.
