Our Charcoal cleanser is recommended for oily skin. An effective ingredient in this product is activated charcoal. It works like a sponge on the face to remove toxins. Charcoal also deep cleans the pores and removes excess sebum, dead skin cells and oil. Both cleanser & face-wash do the basic job of cleaning the face. A face wash is foaming in nature while a cleanser is non-foaming in nature.
