Green Clay (French Argiletz)
Clay – Green (French Argiletz)
INCI: Montmorillonite (French Green Clay)
A superfine clay derived from a fine-grained sedimentary rock called argillite in France. Rich in minerals and with a neutral pH, this clay is used in face masks and body wraps for the treatment of skin problems. It is also suitable for nourishing and cleansing normal and oily skin types.
Directions for use: sprinkle the clay powder onto a carrier oil, such as sweet almond oil or purified water or onto one of our hydrolats or aromatic waters. Allow 5 minutes for the clay to sink before stirring into a homogenous paste. Use between 5% and 40% clay, as preferred. Apply the paste to face or body, allow to dry and then rinse off. Use a moisturiser on your skin to complete the treatment. You can also add essential oils and/or dried herbs to enhance the nourishing effect of the clay.
Note that the clay is not compatible with highly acidic or highly alkaline solutions.
