Binchotan Charcoal has been used in Japan for centuries to filter and purify water. Made in the region of Kishu, this eco-friendly water purifier draws unwanted chemicals out of tap water, naturally softening and improving its taste for up to three months.
Binchotan Charcoal is activated by burning branches of oak at extremely high temperatures inside a specialized kiln. This process, called nerashi, carbonizes the structure of the wood and leaves behind countless porous cavities that naturally bond with toxins, trapping chemicals and other impurities commonly found in tap water.
A one-quarter pound of Binchotan Charcoal can purify up to one gallon of water and will keep your water fresh and pure for three months.
Revered in Japan since the Edo period, Binchotan Charcoal is a natural way to purify, cleanse, and improve the quality of your daily life. Our Binchotan Charcoal is made the time-tested way in its birthplace, the Kishu region of Japan in the WakayamaPrefecture.
