High in iron oxide, Red Clay is a rejuvenating clay for most skin types. It works to absorb excess oil and draw out toxins, bacteria and impurities, and naturally stimulates healthy blood flow. It also closes pores as it dries and leaves skin smooth and toned. Assists in encouraging muscle tone, skin firming and an even texture. Containing high mineral content, this fine powder is perfectly suited for use as a cleansing paste and will create a beauty mask that will exfoliate, nourish, cleanse and purify, to leave the skin soft and smooth. Generally Red Clay is a good choice for tired and dehydrated skin. Suitable for weekly applications.
A cleansing mask with this fine powder works to increase blood circulation and the flow of oxygen to healthy tissue (thus assisting nutrition, repair, regeneration and general resilience to infection). It is naturally detoxifying, antiseptic, curative and balancing. And it absorbs excess oil, exfoliates, rehydrates and delivers essential minerals. Finally, it leaves pores cleaned-out and closed-up for that wonderful smoothness that makes clay such an asset to natural beauty. Particularly suited to sensitive skin (Clay Powder doubles as baby talc), it is also tonic for stressed or irritated skin, and has proved useful in the treatment of both acne and eczema. For even greater therapeutic value we can add Evening Primrose or Rose Hip oil, or it can be blended using Neroli or Rose hydrosol. You can apply a clay mask treatment weekly, fortnightly or monthly, according to skin type. Clay Powder can also be added to the bath for an all-body 'milk' treat.
Yellow Argyle Clay offers a wonderfully mild middle ground for the therapeutic clay family. It has similar curative and cleansing properties to the Green clay while being gentler and more suited to dry, dehydrated or combination skin. It brings the same famous benefits of super fine clays, working to absorb excess oil and draw out toxins, bacteria and impurities. It closes pores as it dries and smoothes skin, encouraging an even, firm skin tone. Perfectly suited for use as a cleansing paste and will create a beauty mask that will exfoliate, nourish, cleanse and purify. Great as a mineral bath for easing sunburn and as a topical mask up to 3 times a week to encourage healthy, rejuvenated skin.
