Aboriginal Australia has been utilising charcoal for tens of thousands of years as a natural cleaning property. Throughout the day, dirt and toxins are settling over your pores making them more noticeable and enlarged in appearance. As charcoal removes toxins, it can help reduce the instances of acne and other skin impurities you might suffer from. It also works wonders for completely removing makeup.

Jillan (Charcoal) used to create this soap is sourced from Girringun’s rainforest timbers. Fire from which charcoal is derived, was and is important to the traditional owners of Girringun. There are may protocols and beliefs associated with fire and the tools used to create it. Traditionally Jillan was used for painting the body and objects including bagu (firemaker), bigin (shields) and wangal (boomerang) and as a pacifier for teething babies.
