Today, we are going to look at Pure Strength Black Diamond Cleansing Bar by Human Nature.
"Pure Strength Black Diamond Cleansing Bar contains nature's powerful deep-cleansing ingredient Bamboo Charcoal known in East Asia as the “Black Diamond”, said to have numerous health benefits. It’s charged with all-natural premium powerful ingredients and none of the compromising chemicals so staying clean and looking good goes beyond good grooming. It’s good stewardship.
Our cleansing bar is cold-processed, which means that it takes more time to make than your usual chemical soaps, which are hot-processed. Hot-processing removes the naturally hydrating glycerin in soap, which is often replaced afterward with synthetic fillers and harmful additives that leave the skin dry and dull after bathing. Cold-processing, on the other hand, produces high-quality soap that retains beneficial natural glycerin which keeps skin soft and hydrated. As a bonus, cold-processing consumes less energy and produces less waste -- so it's not only skin-friendly, but eco-friendly as well!
Did you know: Found in many soaps and washes, Triclocarban is a chemical known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties -- which is why it may come as a shock that it’s also known to interfere with normal development and bodily functions in humans and animals.1 Because of its common household use, triclocarban easily finds its way into the wastewater stream and frequently turns up in sewage sludge. The worst part? Triclocarban is a highly persistent chemical in the environment and takes more than ten years to degrade!2
Dermatologist-tested as non-irritating and safe"
Yep, it is safe to use even if you're having dermatological issues, unless you really have problem with its ingredients (based on site):
"Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, aqua, sodium hydroxide, sodium lactate (sugarcane-derived), sodium gluconate (sugarcane-derived), coco glucoside (coconut-derived), glyceryl oleate (coconut-derived), stearic acid, decyl glucoside (coconut-derived), Mentha piperita (peppermint) essential oil, Mentha arvensis (corn mint) essential oil, charcoal (bamboo-derived)"
Good thing about this soap is that it does not contain microbeads like major cleaning liquids we use. In the other words, it is environmental friendly. What is microbeads, you say? Story of Stuff has a very good materials to explain the impact of micrbeads on our living environment which I think we shall check it out.
OK, enough of those introduction and description. How is it really feel like if you use it? Well, this is my personal account.
It is a black soap, yes, because it is made with bamboo charcoal but it does not creates black bubbles like what I get while washing hands after mechanical repair works. It does not smell anything particular with its dry condition but when it is in contact with water, it starts to smell nice (coconut oil smell, unless you don't like it). Sensationally speaking, my body feels fresh like my body is chewing pepper mint (you know, that kind of sensation when you take pepper mint).
