Activated charcoal is produced from materials that are carbon-dense (e.g., coconut husks, wood, coal, nutshells, and peat) that have been activated using gases (usually argon or nitrogen) then exposed to high temperatures. The result is carbon in the form of a tasteless, odorless black powder that has an expanded surface area, a characteristic that makes it especially effective for various beauty applications.
