Blackened beauty: Charcoal and its purifying properties are the latest health fad

Craig Kraffert, MD

Quotes from Dr. Kraffert are featured in a timely article in the New York Daily News on the latest skincare fad, activated charcoal. The writer, Molly Friedman, covers all the latest purifying uses for activated charcoal and explores how this unusual ingredient reached fad status. 

The story reads, “How well does (charcoal) work on the skin? Truthfully, there isn’t solid clinical data one way or the other,” says dermatologist Dr. Craig Kraffert, who chalks up the popularity of the stuff to its weird factor. “Using a pitch-black product to purify the skin sounds both intriguing and cool … the uniqueness of the ingredient itself, especially its color, is likely the main driver behind the recent surge in popularity of activated charcoal facial cleansers and masks.”
