All my clay is natural occurring and sustainably harvested in river beds. I work with a few larger producers that harvest from areas that are very consistent in color, but I also like to give smaller harvesters a chance and end up with beautiful different colors. I call them my MISFIT CLAY!
Super limited quantities.
Gray-licious - Very fine clay (grains are smaller, clay is denser, and easier to mix into other products), it looks lighter than my regular gray but when mixed with a liquid it becomes a little darker, it also has a light blue tint to it.
Dark and Light Gray are very self explanatory, my Green-Gray has a different texture, not as smooth as my other clay and very "sticky", I think it would look great in soaps but not for masks.
Clay has been used for centuries for cosmetic use and are present in many traditional beauty regimens.
Clay has several cosmetic and therapeutic properties: anti aging, antioxidant, drying, astringent, reconstructive, antiseptic and detoxifying among others. They can be applied to the face, body and even hair. In the latter case, it controls oiliness and dandruff of the scalp.
They also can be used as a 100% natural colorant for soaps and lotions.
Some of the most popular uses are:
facial and body masks and scrubs
balms to alleviate skin conditions, burns and insect bites
Cosmetic clay are made up of different mineral contents and each clay type has a different effect on the skin. Regular use of clay facials will remove dead skin cells, improve circulation to the skin, remove debris from the pores and bring about a smooth healthy glow. Each clay has the ability to absorb toxins from the skin but they differ in their level of absorption.
The Red Clay is rich in iron oxide (important for cellular respiration and electron transfer and copper. Great ability to absorb temperatures and to reduce localized fat. Suitable for body use, to clean completely and deeply the skin; due to its powerful drying capacity helps in healing wounds; assists in the case of rheumatism and arthritis; remove excessive water in the skin; removes excessive oiliness of the skin restoring softness and shine.
The Pink Clay is rich in iron. At the same time while it absorbs toxins and excess of oiliness of the skin, provides the minerals needed to return the freshness and the natural glow of skin and hair, making it silky and soft. It is the softest of all clays, rich in mineral salts and with naturally healing properties. It is suitable for sensitive and delicate skin. Vitalizes the skin, restores natural luminosity (brightness and vigor), increases circulation, with is anti acne and anti-seborrheic action. Being extremely soft it can be used all day without drying the skin.
The Yellow Clay It is rich in silicon dioxide, a catalyst for the formation of skin collagen; suitable for rejuvenating and cosmetic treatments. It has a high exchange capacity for cations and anions. Combats and slows down skin aging processes. This clay stands out by its hemostatic action, purifying, astringent and remineralizing action. Moisturizes the skin and reduces inflammation, improves the elasticity and blood circulation of the skin.
FOR SOAPS - I use 1 tsp of clay for 1 lb of fats in the recipe, I mix the clay dry to the soap at light trace. Make sure you "fold" the soap over the powder before using the stick blender.
They are sold in sealed and re-sealed pouches, the most environmentally friendly option I have found.
