This scrub got its name from the activated charcoal and its fresh and soothing smelling essential oil blend. Perfect for those who enjoy products with activated charcoal, the scrub can be used from head to foot, exfoliating and moisturizing the skin. It does this using a three-sugar blend, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil, shea butter, beetroot powder, and an essential oil blend including eucalyptus and peppermint.
