Our facial clay mask made from natural and simple ingredients from earth and plants, offers a creamy DIY mud mask.
Made from Kaolin clay, known for its gentle nature, this is an ideal choice for individuals with sensitive or dry skin. It acts as a magnet to draw out impurities from your skin and pores, leaving them clean, while simultaneously moisturizing your skin leaving it smooth and soft. It is so gentle that it can even be used on babies (although we do suggest conducting a patch test first).
Kaolin clay's oil-absorbing qualities also make it a suitable option for those with oily skin. All skin types could benefit from it's many applications.
Deep Cleansing: Due to its unique molecular structure, kaolin possesses the capability to effectively absorb deeply embedded impurities such as dirt, grime, and environmental pollutants. It provides a thorough cleanse for the skin, and notably, it doesn't lead to skin dryness, making it particularly beneficial for individuals with dry skin.
Gentle Exfoliation: Kaolin clay has a slightly abrasive yet exceptionally gentle texture. This quality makes it an outstanding exfoliating agent that removes dead skin cells without causing redness or irritation.
Pore Refinement: Kaolin clay's ability to deeply cleanse and exfoliate renders it an excellent choice for reducing the appearance of pores.
Excess Oil Absorption: Kaolin's absorbent properties enable it to effectively soak up excess oil without completely stripping away your skin's natural oils. This leaves the skin looking balanced, radiant, and well-nourished.
Soothing Irritation: Whether you're dealing with a bug bite or an uncomfortable rash, kaolin's healing properties can offer immediate (albeit temporary) relief for inflamed or irritated skin. It also provides relief for inflamed pimples, facilitating skin healing without causing redness and itching.
Skin Benefits when used as reccomended
Acne: Kaolin clay serves as a natural remedy and detoxifier for the skin. Its potential to eliminate toxins, bacteria, and excess oil from skin pores makes it a valuable option for managing acne. Kaolin clay face masks prove highly effective for addressing acne-prone skin. To harness its acne-fighting properties, you can create a face mask by blending kaolin clay with other natural antibacterial ingredients like apple cider vinegar or honey. Alternatively, you can mix it with water or gentle essential oils such as tea tree essential oil to treat acne in sensitive areas such as the neck and chest.
Kaolin Clay for Psoriasis: Psoriasis, a persistent skin condition characterized by red, flaky patches, often accompanied by itchiness and discomfort, can benefit from the anti-inflammatory and soothing effects of kaolin clay. It aids in reducing irritation and inflammation associated with psoriasis, fostering skin hydration and promoting healing. Kaolin clay can assist in alleviating existing psoriasis symptoms and potentially preventing future flare-ups by diminishing inflammation.
Kaolin Clay for Eczema: Eczema, a prevalent skin condition leading to red, itchy, and inflamed patches, can find relief through the application of kaolin clay. To employ kaolin clay for eczema, prepare a paste by mixing one tablespoon of kaolin clay with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Apply this paste directly to the affected areas once daily. After allowing it to sit on the skin for 10 minutes, rinse it off with lukewarm water and gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel. Following this, apply an ointment or cream to lock in surface moisture.
Dry and Sensitive Skin: Kaolin clay, known for its gentleness, proves to be an excellent choice for individuals with sensitive skin. This makes it an ideal option for those seeking a clay mask that won't be harsh on their skin. It effectively absorbs excess oils from the skin and contributes to inflammation reduction. Kaolin clay operates by extracting impurities from pores, making it suitable for those with blemish-prone and oily skin types. Additionally, it exhibits mild astringent properties that aid in controlling excess oil and enhancing skin complexion.
