Char Chalk is an activated charcoal gym chalk made with a proprietary blend of magnesium carbonate (a fancy name for the drying agent used as gym chalk) combined with activated charcoal. This premium chalk is found in a handheld tube for easy and convenient use whether you sweat in a conventional gym, box, or at home.

We use activated charcoal in Char Chalk for two important reasons. The dark complexion of activated charcoal helps our chalk blend into most gym mats without using any artificial coloring or dyes. Plus—it’s said to have a ton of positive health benefits such as gentle skin-exfoliating and antibacterial properties. 

Char Chalk is the first of its kind, not a powder, nor a liquid chalk. It’s delivered in a tubem and applied like a balm or moist sidewalk chalk. You “paint” Char onto your hands exactly where you want it. By waiting :10-:20, Char turns to a lighter complexion, that is the water base evaporating and leaving behind the grippy stuff. Once dry, cap your tube and get to work!

Each individual tube has roughly 75 applications. It’s hard to define what one application looks like for each of our athletes, but we believe each tube should last you at least 3 months.

Our black tube, Volcanic Black. has four times the amount of activated charcoal than our white tube, Lunar Gray. With more activated charcoal, Volcanic Black is darker in complexion (dries from a black to a dark grey), has a grittier feel/texture and exfoliating properties. On the other hand, Lunar Gray has less activated charcoal, is lighter in complexion (dries from a dark grey to a light grey), and is less gritty texture but has the same secure grip. 

We suggest keeping each tube at a comfortable 65-80° F (18-27° C). Against harsh temperatures the contents in your tube may be affected. If that is ever the case, don’t hesitate to reach out so we can send you a replacement. 

No. Our product is water-based and colored naturally, without dyes. Char Chalk will come out of any clothing or equipment with just water

No. Liquid chalks are made with isopropyl alcohol and are in fact liquid, which gets all over the place when applying. Char Chalk on the other hand is more like a moist sidewalk chalk in a tube that allows for a personal and convenient application exactly where you need it.

Yes. Many gyms have bought Char Chalk in bulk for their athletes or have used it as an opportunity to resell for profit. Check out our wholesale options.
