    Several people had told me of the wonders of charcoal soap for skin issues. I made a small batch a while ago, and it did help with my grandson's psoriasis. I have, er, mature, skin, and it even helped with some menopausal breakouts without drying my skin.

    I made a batch last afternoon, and cut it today, and a friend on Facebook said it would make awesome Christmas gifts. I was touched, until he pointed out that it looked like coal for the naughty folks!
    Unfortunately, I'm having trouble uploading the photo, but I will admit it's black. :)

    I render tallow from grass-fed beef, and if I get a deer with a lot of fat on it, I will render that as well. I found that deer tallow soap is awesome, but for this batch I used commercial oils with matcha powder and vit E.

    I read that as charcoal SOUP not soap. Goes to show I'm a bit brain dead.

    I've seen the benefits of charcoal and the skin but have never seen more than reviews that could be made up by others. This is helpful since I'm pretty certain you're a real person. :D

    I would give it at Christmas anyway just to see their reactions, it would have to be priceless.

    I'd love to see the recipe you used. I am always looking for good soap recipes.

    I agree with Grimm, a Recipe and a short how to would be helpful for those Folks who have never made Soap before,

    I have mild psoriasis on my hands and feet. I started thinking about making my own soap so that I could get more natural relief. I made a batch of olive oil based lavender soap but haven't tried it yet. Did the charcoal soap help quickly or did it take a while?

    Me too, my daughter has eczema and she tries all kinds of remedies. She keeps it under control but still has breakouts now and then.

    I love the idea of charcoal soap for Christmas presents, especially for men . Add a few drops of sandewood or even birch oil and it would be "manly" enough for any guy to display proudly in their shower ! Recipe ? Thank you !
