Activated Charcoal Powder -hard to find.Activated Charcoal used to be fairly easy to find but as with many simple things that is no longer true. I was happy to find a selection on Amazon.
This particular product was exactly what I was looking for at a good price. This activated charcoal powder is very fine texture powder, easy to work with and appears to be very pure. If you haven't worked with activated charcoal powder before be sure to do your research and read the labels.
