Charcoal and Silver Detox Mask

Purify your skin.

Själ Elemental Energy

This deep-cleaning mask acts like a magnet to extract impurities from the skin including environmental toxins, dirt, and debris. The activated charcoal attracts and binds to metals, chemicals, and toxins, while the colloidal silver and bentonite clay help kill bacteria. You can always use a foundation brush or fan brush to spread the mask over your face and neck, ensuring a thick, even application. But fingers work just fine, too!

Skin type: All, especially oily or combination skin; use once per week or as needed.
Purpose: Helps to detox and purify the skin.

What you’ll need:

-2 capsules of activated charcoal
-1 teaspoon bentonite clay
-1 teaspoon (heaping) pure organic aloe vera gel
-⅛ teaspoon silver colloidal


Break open the charcoal capsules and empty their contents into a small glass or ceramic bowl. Add the bentonite clay, aloe vera gel, and silver colloidal to the charcoal, mixing with a wooden spoon.

On cleansed skin, gently smooth a thick layer of the mask over the neck and face, avoiding the eye area. Allow the mask to sit for 5 to 8 minutes. Rinse off the mask with warm water or remove it with a damp soft cloth. Gently pat your face dry.
