Clay is one of the most cleansing and detoxifying ingredients you can use on your skin —both now and in ancient cultures. Rich in minerals, the benefits of clay for skin in helping to clear blemishes, draw out impurities and leave you with a brighter and happier skin.
These clays are naturally coloredby variations in the minerals found in the soil in the different regions and do not contain any artificial dyes or pigments. There are many different types of clay: from Rose and Kaolin, to French Green and Red. Each full of different benefits for your skin.
This is probably the most aesthetically pleasing clay ever due to its calming green color. Green clay has minerals like iron oxide, dolomite, magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, aluminum, silicon, copper, selenium, and cobalt. This type of clay is important for its stimulating effect on the skin surface. It helps absorbs dead skin cells and debris from the surface and stimulates blood supply of the skin. As the clay dries, it contracts the pores making them appear smaller while cleaning away the unwanted oily secretions.
Kaolin clay comes in various colors like pink, white, red, and yellow are the better-known ones, each of which have different capacities.
Bentonite clay can be used to treat skin discoloration. It also lightens your skin naturally and takes care of acne, scars, and stretch marks. Therefore, use it in products formulated for skin whitening.
Kaolin Clay is one of the mildest clays available, as it gently cleanses the skin without removing too much oil and causing sensitivity to the skin. Its mild exfoliant properties help to remove dead skin cells and impurities from the skin, reducing blemishes and imperfections.
For a gentle cleanse, reach for our Milky Way Bath Salt to gently detox the skin without disrupting the natural balance of your skin. To add even more moisturizing into your bath add in our Garden Goddess Bath Bomb. This is made with coconut oil and coconut milk powder, a animal free, milky, and moisturizing bath bomb to hydrate your skin.
Sensitive skin can be one of the hardest skin types to work with due to the fact that most ingredients can cause some degree of irritation. Opt for a clay that gently cleanses without drawing out too many impurities so that your skin remains soothed.
Rose Clay is an ideal clay to use if you have sensitive skin as it has mild exfoliating properties, which is great for clearing your skin without harsh and abrasive ingredients. It doesn't absorb a lot of oil from the skin, so still leaves you with a hydrated complexion, while still removing toxins at the same time.
Luckily for our sensitive skin friends rose clay is one of our favorite clays to work with. Our range of Rose Clay products will easily bring the energy of the herbal apothecary to your self care routines while carefully refreshing your skin. Ceramic Rose, Healers Horizon, and Desert Moon were all created with rose clay being the main ingredients and scented with settle aroma. **We still recommend doing a small test patch before using.
If you have oily skin, clay-based skincare is brilliant at removing excess oil and leaving you with a matte and healthy complexion. French Green Clay is brilliant for oily skin types as they work much better at absorbing excess oil than more gentle based ones. It helps to clear out clogged pores, eliminating blackheads, whiteheads and acne thanks to its purifying properties that draw out impurities and toxins.
You can find French Green clay in one of our favorite bath bombs Ego Rebirth which is filled with this magical clay. It is also featured in Funeral Ashes and a mix of matcha powder and green clay make up our Soulful Retreat bath salt.
