What Is Charcoal?

It's the lightweight black carbon-based material made from heating wood and other materials without oxygen. Activated charcoal, which is the more common version for health and beauty products, has been ‘activated’ to form small, low-volume pores in order to increase the surface area. This ‘activating’ process helps to increase the surface area to mass ratio, making it more absorbent.

This ‘activating’ process the charcoal of previously absorbed molecules and frees up bonding sites again. This process also reduces the size of the pores in the charcoal and makes more holes in each molecule, therefore, increasing the surface area to mass ratio, making it more absorbent.

How Is Charcoal Made?

One common process to make this is by steam activation. In this process, the coconut shells are heated to create char which is then ‘activated’ at high temperatures via steam and with an absence of oxygen. By using steam activation, it helps to remove volatile compounds and helps to form pores, creating activated versions of the same.
