The Process

KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal (Binchotan) is created through an ancient Japanese technique where high quality hardwood is baked in a kiln, at temperatures of over 1000ºC, until it becomes carbonised. Through this process KURO-Bō Activated Charcoal becomes a highly porous natural filter and, when placed in tap water, naturally adsorbs and removes toxins, while enriching it with beneficial minerals, turning ordinary tap water into filtered water, with a delicious and more refreshing taste.

The sticks are affordable (just over R1 per litre of filtered water) and very simple to use. Watch the video here.
