French Blue Clay is highly rich in minerals and trace elements, and boasts absorption, stimulating and oxygenating properties.
It tightens and purifies pores, cleanses the skin, improves circulation, brightens the complexion, and removes dead skin-cells and impurities, stimulating blood flow to create healthy and glowing skin.
It is well suited for all skin types, particularly normal to oily skin.
Blue French Clay can be used in a wide range of skincare and cosmetic products, including soap making, detoxifying body wraps, face masks, cleansers, face/body scrubs, eye-shadows, and other various cosmetics.
French clays are 100% natural mineral powders - the clay is crushed and dried via mechanical treatment, with absolutely no chemical additives.
