Does this remove different toxins than your charcoal bath? If so what toxins and how do these ingredients remove them?

The 2 recipes detox in different ways, both equally effective. Some people may not like the idea of a black bath, or want something that smells better.

The charcoal bath draws out toxins and absorbs the toxins into itself.

Ginger helps circulation and blood flow which in turn helps the body to sweat out the toxins, but it does not absorb the toxins.

Both recipes have baking soda, sea salt, and epsom salt which are all well know for their detoxing effects in baths.
