Stay fresh with these de­tox­i­fy­ing char­coal-in­fused must-haves.

1 Man­duka

GRP YOGA MAT

Hot and power yoga ses­sions will be slimy no more, thanks to this char­coal-in­fused, no-slip mat from Man­duka. De­signed to make the yoga towel ob­so­lete, its tri-lay­ered de­sign wicks away mois­ture and char­coal ban­ishes odors for good ($98, man­duka.com).

2 Nawrap BINCHOTAN BODY WASH TOWEL

Quick dry­ing and del­i­cate to the touch, this yoga towel is wo­ven with an­timi­cro­bial and anti-odor binchotan (a tra­di­tional Ja­panese Oak char­coal that ab­sorbs im­pu­ri­ties) so you can fo­cus on lib­er­a­tion—not per­spi­ra­tion ($15, nawrap.ip­pinka.com).

3 Dirty Le­mon DAILY DETOX

Take an in­side-out ap­proach to well­ness with a le­mon-gin­ger elixir packed with phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal­grade char­coal that prom­ises to elim­i­nate harm­ful chem­i­cals be­fore your body can ab­sorb them. An added bonus? Dan­de­lion root may re­duce choles­terol and im­prove liver and kid­ney func­tion ($65 for case of 6, dirtyle­mon.com).

4 Lit­tle Seed Farm AC­TI­VATED CHAR­COAL DE­ODOR­ANT CREAM

Char­coal’s ab­sorbent pow­ers make this or­ganic, minty cream de­odor­ant strong enough to stand up to HIIT work­outs but gen­tle enough for sen­si­tive un­der­arms. We love that it’s made by hand in small batches on a Ten­nessee farm that’s com­pletely pow­ered by the sun ($14, lit­tle­seed­farm.com).

5 Her­bi­vore BAM­BOO CHAR­COAL DE­TOX­I­FY­ING SOAP BAR

This cleanser’s sparkly lather gen­tly buffs skin to a soft shine. Charred bam­boo dives deep into pores to draw out dirt, while tea tree oil soothes ir­ri­tated skin and min­i­mizes blem­ishes. Use it all over for a happy face and body ($12, her­bi­vore­b­otan­i­cals.com).

6 Lush BOOM! TOOTHY TABS; Wilder Goods BAM­BOO AND CHAR­COAL TOOTHBRUSH

The ul­ti­mate dream team of oral hy­giene: travel-friendly tooth­paste tabs (spiked with ex­tra de­tox­i­fy­ing gun­pow­der tea) meet a toothbrush as eco-friendly as they come— its fully com­postable bam­boo and char­coal­im­bued an­timi­cro­bial bris­tles make it easy to scrub your way to a bright smile ($11, lush.com; $5, shop­wilder­goods.com).

7 Sky and Com­pany OBSIDIAN BATH SALTS

Melt away stress and in­flam­ma­tion with sooth­ing rose petals, mus­cle­re­lax­ing Ep­som salt, and de­tox­i­fy­ing ac­ti­vated char­coal—all you have to do is draw the bath ($30, shop­skyandco.com).
