Charcoal Facial Bar

Rated 4.82 out of 5 based on 34 customer ratings

Try our truly natural, gentle charcoal facial bar.  It uses the power of avocado oil, coconut milk, mango butter, and charcoal to cleanse gently.



Keep your skin clean and healthy with our NEW charcoal facial bar!

Unlike other bars, ours is truly natural, using whole plant-based ingredients to cleanse gently.  We don’t play around with isolated chemicals or other junk, and we don’t use anything artificial either!

Most other charcoal facial bars are really detergent bars, not true soap.  Ours is different — and, we think, better.

This facial bar combines the gentle cleansing action of avocado and olive oils with the detoxifying properties of activated charcoal.  The bar is finished off with a small amount of mango butter to moisturize!

Avocado oil is a unique oil.  It has very gentle cleansing properties, which makes it great for sensitive skin.  But it’s also a “stronger” oil, which makes the bar of soap harder.  It’s nourishing for skin too!  It’s a super awesome oil for facial bars especially.

Then, there’s the charcoal!  It’s one of our very favorite ingredients.  It helps to gently detoxify skin, removing dirt and impurities gently.

We’ve even included coconut milk in this bar!  Coconut milk is super gentle and moisturizing for skin, and it adds a truly luxurious feel to this bar.

Finally, there’s a touch of mango butter.  It’s super nourishing for skin.  This keeps your skin from feeling dried out when washing.

All in all, this is the perfect, gentle, truly natural facial soap!


Olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, coconut milk, sodium hydroxide*, mango butter, castor oil, and activated charcoal.

*No lye is left in the final bar of soap!

Spearmint scent has spearmint essential oil.


Splash skin with warm water.  Rub the charcoal bar onto skin, and gently rub your skin until the soap is worked in.  Rinse completely with warm water.  Follow with your preferred moisturizer.


Safe for all ages.  For external use only.

    It was kinda gross looking and I didn’t feel clean after using it

      We’re sorry you didn’t like it, Jessica! Charcoal soap is not for everyone. 🙂 It definitely has a bit of gray-ness to it when washing. It also cleans very gently, so if you’re used to more harsh cleansers, this isn’t like that. Contact support if you need any help.

    When I found out Earthley was coming out with a Charcoal facial bar, I was ecstatic because I have had my eye on them for awhile (after years of just using baking soda out of frugality)! I haven’t found a charcoal bar with natural ingredients for less than $30, so this was a no brainer for me.
    I was honestly a little concerned that it would be drying (my skin has been crazy dry since I have been pregnant) because I have read that activated charcoal can have that effect, but it wasn’t at all! It has actually had the opposite effect (I’m guessing because of the butters and oils used to make the bar). I purchased the Spearmint version, so, aside from smelling amazing, if FEELS amazing and tingly on my skin while, at the same time, extremely moisturizing…something I’ve never experienced with a facial cleanser before.
    My husband keeps telling me how soft my skin feels!

    By far my favorite face wash. I started using it daily but I have sensitive skin and had to start using it every other day. Perfect. The spearmint smell is amazing. Keep it away from the shower water and store in a dry place and you’re golden. Seriously a must have!

    I love this charcoal face bar smells great and makes my skin feel clean and soft! The price is also nice cause the bar is pretty big and last a while.

    Love it. I have problem skin and I use this mornings and before bed with the Earthley skin care line. My face is clean and feels amazing afterwards.

    Love it! I have sensitive skin, but this charcoal face bar keeps my breakouts under control. I use it in combination with whipped butter, and my skin looks and feels amazing!

    I am so happy I got the free sample of this! I love your moisturizer and night oil(rejuvenate me?) also. I was so frustrated with the more natural face washes and moisturizers that you find at the store because my skin would still break out from them. The one natural company that makes skin care products that I also loved, I could not afford. I feel like my skin is less red and more glowing from this also. I never write reviews on products, but I was so thrilled with these products. My sister told me the other day that I looked beautiful, and I attributed it to your skin care regime! So a very happy costumer here! I thought the “Tone Me” was way too drying for my face though.

    Ok, this is seriously a gift soap bar for my face! I use this with EVERY shower! They now have spearmint back in a stock and bought myself the BIG one and AM IN HEAVEN! I am not a big face washer who uses all kinds of different products on my face. I am simple and literally only use this to clean my face specifically in the shower. The spearmint is bomb too and makes me feel extra clean and fresh! Along with the toner now (I have started using their toner after my shower and it clears up any small pimples within a day. I had never even heard of a toner until now 🙂 ) my skin is seriously looking better than ever. If you do buy the big bar I would cut into 4ths just because the big bar is big along with my other soaps on my shower ledge :).

    Sorry, one more thing! The 1 oz bars is the gift I give all my friends and family on the side of their larger gifts 🙂 I really love this one!

    This is the first charcoal soap I’ve tried and I love it. I have very healthy skin as it it and this wasn’t too drying. Also, it lasts FOREVER. Ive got the sample size and use it for my face 3-5 times per week and estimate ill get atleast 6-8months out of it.

    By far, my favorite facial bar I’ve ever tried. I’ve used charcoal bars from other companies but this one is superior. I can’t go without one. I use it along with the charcoal mask. It helps the mask to come off a lot better than using regular soap.

    I was very happy to find this. My daughter and I had been gifted a charcoal bar from a very expensive natural cosmetic company. I loved it, but couldn’t afford to buy another. Earthly’s charcoal bar is reasonable and works well.

    I bought this for my daughter. When she got pregnant her hormones went crazy. Her face was so broke out. She started using this and I was impressed. Her beautiful skin is back.

    I am in love with this facial bar! The charcoal is just what my face needs to get a good cleaning, and I absolutely love how clean and refreshed my skin feels after using.

    As a 35 year old woman, I am, unfortunately, still prone to acne. This bar, while ugly and bland smelling (unscented) cleans my face perfectly in the shower each morning, and my acne has decreased dramatically! My skin is no longer overly oily, nor is it dry, just fresh and healthy feeling. I’ve already ordered a replacement in mint.

    I will never go back to regular face wash! I got a sample of this bar and I love it. My skin has been clearer and smooth. It cleans my makeup off too!

    This has been my favorite facial cleanser so far. It cleaned my face well enough to remove all make up and oil, yet not completely strip my skin of natural oils. Typically my skin is so dry in the Winter, yet this cleanser still leaves my skin looking bright and refreshed, not dry and flaky.

    This seemed to work pretty well, but it dried out my skin too much, so I switched to the Oatmeal based soap that Earthley sells, and that has worked a lot better for me.

    I bought the 1 oz size quite a while ago. I just replaced it with another travel size and a full size one. My face is clean and not one chemical in sight.

    I wanted to jump on the charcoal bandwagon and tried a sample from a friend from another company. It was great but the price was steep. I ordered the one from Earthly instead for a third of the price and was NOT disappointed! My skin is detoxed without being dried out. I’m excited to try the spearmint one next time!
