A 100% vegetable activated carbon
Anaé charcoal is obtained by calcining coconut shells, then thermally activated in the presence of water vapour, without the use of chemicals unlike many activated charcoals. Coconut shell produces a very fine pore carbon, which allows it to be the most effective in adsorbing gases as well as liquids, but also heavy metals, hydrocarbons, chlorides,... Coconut charcoal also has a higher density than charcoal obtained from softwoods, cellulose residues or petroleum residues. Its absorbent power is 25 times greater than that of ash. It is possible to obtain activated carbon from all kinds of carbon-rich organic materials, but coconut shells are the one that gives the highest quality of carbon, especially in terms of its adsorption capacity but also at the level of the various parameter indices measuring the quality of the coal and its efficiency.
A simple process that guarantees the preservation of the properties and a healthy use of charcoal: absorption of impurities, cosmetic dye, digestive discomfort, care of the mouth and teeth... but also deodorant in the house.
Perfect adsorption capacity
Anaé Activated Charcoal owes its properties to its incredible adsorption capacity due to its extremely porous surface (much like a sponge) on a microscopic scale. By a physical phenomenon, the negative ions of the contaminants attach themselves firmly to the surface of the carbon. This adsorption capacity makes it possible to trap pollutants, contaminants, etc. Activated carbon is particularly renowned for adsorbing chemicals, drugs, narcotics, heavy metals, synthetic hormones, pesticides, but also the toxins produced by certain plants, the venoms of insects or snakes, or certain bacteria, such as staphylococci and salmonella, and even certain viruses. Since carbon is hydrophobic, it will not adsorb water. On the other hand, it is also capable of adsorbing gases, which in particular gives it its effectiveness internally against flatulence.
