The gifts of Mother Earth: White Clay/Kaolin Clay

What is Kaolin Clay used for?

White clay, also known as Kaolin Clay, is a naturally occurring clay found in soil from the weathering of rocks. It has become a popular ingredient in skin care and hair care products in recent years and has also been used in many different cultures for hundreds of years for skin care. With a neutral pH, white clay is the mildest of all cosmetic clays. 

Rich in mineral salts, white clay contains kaolin which is an ingredient that repairs skin and hair. A gentle clay, it is suitable for all skin and hair types. It has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which heal, soften, and purify skin while also hydrating and restoring radiance to dry and fragile hair. It is known for its versatility and its wide ranging benefits. 

White clay is a potent facial cleanser. It gently sloughs off dead skin cells, removes impurities from pores, and deeply cleanses your face without stripping it of its natural oils and leaves skin feeling wonderfully soft and rejuvenated. Its ability to cleanse ensures that pore-clogging impurities like bacteria and excess sebum cling to the clay and removed from pores, not only detoxing your skin but also shrinking your pores in the process.

How do you use White Clay?

Regular use of white clay can also tone your skin due to its exfoliating and deep cleansing properties. It helps reduce pore size, stimulates new skin turnover, and gives your skin an overall toned and fresher appearance. It absorbs excess sebum without drying your skin out which helps combat skin inflammations like acne and breakouts and also soothes the skin. 

White clay’s ability to absorb harmful compounds from skin also makes it a perfect ingredient for deodorants. It detoxes your underarms and absorbs odor-causing impurities without any harsh chemicals and is gentle and natural on the lymphatic system. These properties also extend to scalp and hair care. 

White clay deeply cleanses the scalp of dead cells, excess sebum, product build-up, and soothe conditions like dandruff and dryness. It boosts circulation and helps make the roots of your hair stronger. While it deeply cleanses the scalp, it also hydrates hair resulting in stronger and more resilient hair that is less prone to breakage.
