Thunderbrook's Activated Charcoal is produced from coconut shells, that are heated to very high temperatures to remove any organic matter, it is then exposed to super heated steam to activate the charcoal which increases the surface area and absorbency of the material by over 300%. It is pharmaceutical grade, B.P.C 1934 which stands for British Pharmaceutical Codex which defines the quality and specification of the activated charcoal.  The correct chemical term for this grade of material is activated carbon.  

Charcoal is a low grade material and can be produced from organic matter such as moss or wood, They only use coconut based Activated Carbon as the material has a high surface area, absorbency and purity which is far safer to use than charcoals derived from woods etc.  Such products based on charcoal should not be taken orally for use in man or animals as the material can contain harmful substances, only use Activated Charcoal (Carbon).


Produced from natural ingredients, no artificial additives or ingredients.
