How BLEMISH BUSTER Charcoal Soap Helps
Activated charcoal is the workhorse in the BLEMISH BUSTER Charcoal Soap. It’s super attracted to toxins and draws them out of skin’s pores. Charcoal gently exfoliates, increasing circulation to skin’s surface. Lemongrass essential oil combats the bacteria that causes acne and its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce outbreaks to keep skin clear and blemish free.
Rice bran extract brightens and softens skin. Along with sweet Licorice Root, both whiten skin, naturally correcting discoloration. With continued use you will see noticeably softer and a more even skin tone. With zero synthetic ingredients, you can say goodbye to unsightly blemishes.

What is the recommended shelf life of BODYTRUTH© soaps?
As all natural soaps age, some of the natural essential oil scent may be lost over time, especially from the surface. However, the scent will be there when you lather up the bar, just not as strong! Over time, natural color may fade as well, although it has no bearing on the performance of the soap.
We recommend using your handmade soap within 12 months, especially if when they contain essential oils. Castile soaps like our ECZEMA RELIEF bars, are the exception, they cure for nearly 12 months and continue to get better with age, therefore they have a much longer shelf life.
How are BODYTRUTH© products best stored?
Our products are made from plant based ingredients. They do not contain artificial ingredients, stabilizers, synthetics nor preservatives like BHT or Trisodium EDTA to prolong shelf life. Therefore, they can deteriorate when stored in areas exposed to excessive heat and humidity for prolonged periods.
Handmade, natural and organic soaps need to breathe. Exposure to air promotes further hardening of the bars and contribute to longer-lasting quality. Soap can be left unwrapped in a cool dry place away from excessive heat and humidity or wrapped with breathable, recyclable materials. Avoid tight wrappers and plastic wrap; such material doesn’t allow the soap to breathe.
Does BODYTRUTH© soaps use fragrance oil?
NO we do not use any fragrance oils in our products nor our shop and we have no gripes against those who do.
We’ve chosen to remain holistic in our approach in support of whole body health, therefore we only use ingredients gifted to us by nature.
What do I look for in skin care products?
(1) Know your skin & pay close attention to ingredients.
(2) Be aware of cosmetic trends & stick with what works.
(3) Make note of the ingredients that your skin responds well to and vice versa; if you aren’t sure, save the labels and take notes.
(4) Make note of any ESSENTIAL oils that you do or do not respond well to. Citrus oils like orange and grapefruit are natural but sensitizing.
(5) Look for soaps without FRAGRANCE OIL & added colors.
(6) Read labels and investigate ingredients that you are unfamiliar with.
Even if a product touts the inclusion of a trendy ingredient like Argan oil, or the exclusion of a controversial one, it’s still important to pay attention to what else ‘IS’ there.
Can I use BODYTRUTH© soaps on my infant?
