You might just try "charcoal", I know people who seek it out because it's supposed to relieve some of the weirder skin fungi and yeast problems (also mechanics like it-- not sure why, but they do.)

Otherwise just translate into french (which usually sounds good on soap labels) : "savon de charbon de bois" (lit: soap of charcoal)

What type of charcoal did you use? Some soapmakers in Asia use bamboo charcoal. It's suppose to help remove toxins from your skin.

I just made my 1st batch of charcoal soap too. But still waiting for it to cure. I use "acitvated charcoal" found at health food stores.

I just used the activated charcoal from the health food store. I put 1 tsp per pound, not sure. Is that enough? I also found at walmart activated charcoal in the fish section for like around five dollars. I wonder is it the same thing as in the health food store?

Other SMF members have used charcoal found it pet shops too. You'll find it in the older threads. So I think it's OK. I haven't tried that yet.

I used two capsules of activated charcoal with my 2 lb batch. I think that is about the same as your measurement. Althought I was thinking of using more, but it seem like that was enough.

My soap should be ready to use in a couple of days. Can't wait to give it a try! :)
