Founded in 2006 by Danish ceramic artist Louise Vilsgaard and Danish film producer Pernille Lembcke, Sort of Coal was created in an effort to bring the centuries-old benefits of White Charcoal to the Western world with a minimal, modern esthetic. Despite its name, White Charcoal is pitch black and originates from the wood of trees grown in Japan and Korea. White Charcoal absorbs impurities in the water, air and skin while releasing essential minerals in turn.
