Black Paint Pore Cleansing Soap


dsc_0016Having looked closely at Black Paint skincare some time ago, I am rather impressed with their products as they appear to be of high/premium quality. Black Paint Pore Cleansing Soap is described as “a gentle pore cleansing hand-made face soap with Kishu Binchotan Charcoal (White Charcoal, a high-grade charcoal produced from Ubame oak made in Wakayama Prefecture). This soap cleans pores and removes oil and dirt thoroughly but gently without stripping away skin’s essential moisture, leaving skin fresh and silky smooth.

To use this soap, dip it in warm water (40°C) for about 40 seconds until its surface is as soft as butter texture to release the essential oils, silk and honey. It nourishes skin with 28 types of plant oils, amino acids, silk powder and vitamins in honey and brown sugar. The Kishu Binchotan Charcoal effectively absorbs impurities and delivers natural minerals.


The soap is to be applied directly to the face, looks like a mask. Then massage face with wet hands for 20 seconds. It’s effective in removing make-up and great for deep pore cleansing. Skin feels so soft and smooth after the soap has been rinsed off.

Like the water at a hot spring spa, the soap’s pH is slightly alkaline. This triggers the skin’s own self-cleansing process which pushes dirt out of the pores from within. The need for harsh chemical cleansers, abrasives, artificial surfactants and antiseptic agents is eliminated, and skin regains its natural, healthy glow.
