French Green Clay

French Green Clay

A premium cosmetic clay from France. Excellent detoxifying clay used in face and body masks, bath powders, soap making and poultices. French Green Clay absorbs and removes impurities from the skin, stimulating blood flow to create healthy and glowing skin. When prepared as a mask, the clay dries on the skin causing pores to tighten and the skin to feel firm, toned and refreshed. French Green Clay can be used in poultices to treat arthritis, sore muscles, and sprains and mineral baths for stress relief. It is suitable for all skin types. French Green Clay comes from the sedimentation of Silico-aluminum, its coloring the result of the oxides contained in these rocks. French Green Clay is prepared for the commercial market by a process of sun-drying and crushing. After the clay has been mined, it is spread in the sun to remove excess water. It is then ground by large hydraulic crushers and micronized, or finely pulverized. The last stage in the process is a final period of sun-drying to remove the last traces of water.

French Green Clay is a premium clay containing Iron, Silica, Aluminum, Magnesium, Calcium, Titanium, Sodium and Potassium which helps absorb and remove impurities from the skin.
