Chikuno Life

A local natural resource since prehistoric times, activated charcoal is an eco-friendly natural purifier renowned for its incredible absorbency. Its structure is filled with hundreds of microscopic cavities that trap odor-causing chemicals, so potent that one gram of charcoal has as much surface area as a tennis court. When its powder is infused into beauty and health goods, those products retain its amazing absorptive qualities. Originally harnessed by Japanese craftsmen four hundred years ago for its purifying properties, our collection reimagines an ancient technique for modern living.
