Why active charcoal?
Charcoal has so many benefits including it's ability to absorb into your pores and draw out the dirt and oils that are blocking the pores!
Using our charcoal bar consistently on your face can reduce or eliminate acne, bumps and blackheads (when combined with our facial scrub and patchouli facial moisturizer)! Our charcoal soap is also a great body bar for an all over skin detox, as well as a wonderful soap for your hands as charcoal soap can help reduce pigmentation and make your hands look younger.
If that wasn't enough to have you grabbing up all the charcoal soap I've made, here's a few more benefits: charcoal soap won't dry out your skin, helps to fight odors (hello arm pits!), and my charcoal soap has shea butter added to soften & condition your skin! It's also a big 5.5 oz bar that will last and last as cold press soap is harder than any glycerin soap bars!
Lastly, this soap is made with my "hard bar" formula, just like all the soaps in the signature collection. Soaps made with this formula are not only super mild, but they last a really long time!
- Organic sunflower oil
- Organic olive oil
- Organic palm oil (sustainable / saponified)

About Batty's Soaps
Batty's Bath Cold Press Soaps are 100% natural and made from scratch using old world techniques & ingredients. The care that was put into soap making years ago as well as the recipes that were passed down from generation to generation make their come back with these creamy, soft soaps that produce spectacular lather! The luscious lather from these soaps are not produced by any synthetic ingredients or chemical boosters; instead, Batty uses specific oils in her soap batches that are known to be mild on the skin while producing great lather! In fact, they lather up so well that they can easily be used to shave with!
There are no short cuts when it comes to the cold press method - these soaps take weeks to cure but are well worth the wait! Batty's Bath handmade method of soap making ensures the most amount of glycerin possible is retained unlike commercial soap making. Retaining the glycerin makes a softer, milder soap which is emollient and moisturizing to the skin.
Batty's Bath Cold Press Soap is ideal for those with sensitive skin, for conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis or anyone allergic to commercial soap because they don't strip the skin of its natural, beneficial oils. In fact, they are mild enough to use on babies' delicate skin.
These 100% natural soaps do not contain any synthetic ingredients, colours, or scents. Instead, they are made with the freshest, highest quality natural ingredients, colored with natural clays, and scented with aromatherapy grade essential oils.
If you haven't experienced the world of Batty's Bath Cold Press Soaps then you are in for a real treat! Many bath & body lovers say that once you try natural cold press soaps that have been made with the finest ingredients and utmost care, that there's go going back to anything they were using before!
What's the Difference Between Handcrafted Soap and "Commercial" Soap?
Commercial soaps are manufactured in large factories (often located overseas) staffed with anonymous employees, using the most economical ingredients. Often they contain some or all synthetic detergents; most have the glycerin removed.
Batty's handcrafted soaps, on the other hand, are manufactured locally in small batches with the personal oversight and care of long-time soapmaker, Batty. Batty makes use of high-quality ingredients including specialty oils and botanical additives to personalize her formulations.
The creative artistry of Batty results in soaps that are different and unique, offering you a wide selection of soaps that are not only natural, but functional and beautiful as well.
How to Make Your Soap Bars Last
Once you've tried handmade soap you want every silky skin loving bubble to last! Thankfully I won't stop making handmade soap any time soon BUT I know you want each and every bar to last even longer than they already do! No problem! Here's a few tips on how to make them last!
- Don't leave your handmade soap in the tub while you're soaking in the tub.
- Make sure your handmade soap isn't in the water stream – keep it in a corner of the shower or tub where it won't be constantly hit by water.
- Use a soap dish that provides appropriate drainage so your soap bar can completely dry out between uses.
- Rub your soap bar onto a wash cloth & use that to get clean rather than rubbing the soap bar right onto your body.
- Keep your soap bars in their packaging, in a cool dry place until you're ready to use them.
- Consider cutting your soap bars in half and only putting one-half in the shower at a time.
Size of Each Soap Bar: 162 g / 5.5 oz

This is by far the creamiest, gentlest soap I've ever used. It makes my skin feel clean without drying it out and making it feel tight. I've used a third of my first bar, and I see a noticeable difference in my skin. This soap has reduced redness and breakouts for me. Love it!
I'm still on my first soap and I already bought another. I like how it cleans your skin, but doesn't leave it dry. I started using it in the shower, too, and love the results!!
I won't be using any other soap any time soon. The benefits of this are so numerous. It doesn't irritate my Rosacea and as part of my routine it is actually helping my Rosacea. Sometimes my skin feels a bit tight afterward but not dry. I use this on my body as well (particularly underarms to help rid that bacteria that causes door). It lasts a very long time too which I love.
Great feel and great quality
This is my third time purchasing the charcoal soap bar and I love this product. It's gentle enough to wash my face daily, and takes care of those annoying back and chest breakouts I usually experience in the summer months. I definitely noticed a difference in my skin when I ran out and didn'thave this soap in my routine, so now I make sure to stock up during my orders!
This product got rid of almost all of my blackheads after one use! Leaves my face super-clean but never stripped and always soft. I don't know how it does that, but I am grateful that it does. This is one of my Batty's Top Two that I can't live without. Great job, Batty.
I love how my face feels after using this soap. I'm now starting to use this on my body . Can't ever be without it. Oh, and a bar lasts forever.
I started using this as part of the rosacea care kit and I was a bit worried it would dry out my skin, therefore leading to more redness. And while it isn't exactly moisterizing it isn't drying either, I found using it at night before I load up on mosterizers and serums leaves my skin open for targeting products. I don't use it in the morning before make up because I need an extra boost of moisture for make up to sit well, so I use the soothing cleanser in the AM. This soap has helped shrink my pores, lessen my acne and reduce inflammation, and it washes make up off like a beast.
I can't stop touching my face after using this product! After just one use, I noticed a huge improvement in the softness of my skin and minimized the look of my pores (huge struggle for me). I follow this up with a tinted moisturizer in the mornings before running to work and I look and feel clean and refreshed all day. My kids hate washing their faces but they love the look of the dark black soap. Also, my daughter's pimples have been erased after just a week. I need to stock up on more before they use it all!!!
this product works well at removing makeup and the day's grime. This soap bar makes a nice lather which you can use to give yourself an extra clean scrub. Unfortunately, sometimes my face feels a little tight after using this. However, if you make sure to use some good products afterwards you'll be fine. Another small gripe that's based on my personal preference with facial cleansers is that you need to make sure that your soap is totally dry after you use it. Otherwise, this soap will stick to whatever it's resting on and get black soap all over the place. If you like facial soaps in bar format, then you'll already know this and will likely be fine with it! All in all, this is a solid product! I would recommend this.
