We just had to spill the tea on the amazing benefits of clay! It works wonders for your skin and hair, how you might ask???
French Green Clay is from France….and a few other places! The clay's green color comes from a combination of iron oxides and decomposed plant matter, mostly kelp seaweed and other algae. (Encyclopedia, 2021) Not only does it remove impurities, but it causes stimulation and tightens pores for a firmer feeling. If your look for a natural cleanser this may be an option for you.
Bentonite Clay comes from volcanic ash, used for the variety of minerals and nutrients that it provides for our bodies, this clay is often used dry skin. Due to the large component of absorption, it can be used in an array of skin and hair care products.
Kaolin Clay is known for being a very gentle and mild clay. It comes in a variety of hues but the most popular is the off-white color. Kaolin helps prevents breakouts and removes excess dirt. If you are just trying out clay this would suite you simply fine.
Rose clay is a type of Kaolin Clay and loved by many for its pretty blush color. Rose clay also known as pink clay is great for sensitive skin because of its mildness. It draws out any excess oils while exfoliating.
Have naturally curly hair and you want to liven up your curls? Try a clay mask to make your curls pop! We must warn you, yes it is messssssyyyyy. First combine clay with equal parts water or Apple Cider Vinegar- we prefer ACV with “Mother”, then mix until you have reached your desired consistency. Apply to your strands and allow it to sit 10-15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and enjoy your revitalization!
