White Clay (French Argiletz)
Clay – White (French Argiletz)
INCI: CI 77004
A superfine clay derived from a fine-grained sedimentary rock called argillite in France. Rich in minerals and with a pH of 5, this white clay is used in face masks and body wraps for the treatment of sensitive skin.
Directions for use: sprinkle the clay powder onto a carrier oil, such as sweet almond oil or purified water or onto one of our 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.
