Mineral rich White Kaolin Clay (Kaolinite) is a gentle skin purifier that is suitable for all skin types, particularly dry and sensitive skin. It has a natural absorbency which draws excess oil, dirt and impurities from deep within the pores without overly stripping the skin and leaving it dry and tight. Kaolin Clay gently exfoliates the skin and stimulates the circulation to reveal a clearer, healthier, more radiant looking complexion. It can also help to soothe irritation and inflammation.
Kaolin Clay can be used as an ingredient in a variety of natural skincare products and is particularly useful for creating your own therapeutic face masks.
For a fully-setting face mask we recommend mixing the clay and your chosen liquid or gel at a ratio of 2:1 i.e. 2 parts clay to 1 part liquid. For a softer consistency, that won't set completely, use equal quantities. You will typically need 2-3 tsp of clay per face mask.
Please be advised that larger bulk quantities of clay (500g) will be packaged in plastic bags. Smaller quantities will be packaged within 50g sachets.
