Charcoal Is the New Black:
Naturally Purifying Products from Japan
Clean coal? It’s not a myth. In Japan, burned bamboo and scorched oak branches gain new uses as charcoal. Renowned for its purifying properties, this elemental substance can be used in stick form to filter water, absorb odors, and promote healthy soil. Ultrafine charcoal powder also gives an extra cleansing boost to Tenfold’s plush terry towels and Morihata’s facial soap, exfoliating tools, and blotting papers. The newest addition to our charcoal-powered assortment is Chikuseiko incense: scented sticks ready for another burn.
