Green clay

Green clay, a natural substance, derives its name from its distinctive green hue, primarily attributed to the presence of minerals such as iron, magnesium, and calcium. Its fine and powdery texture makes it easily usable in the making of masks and scrubs. Composed of minerals, trace elements, and aluminum silicate, it benefits from purifying and revitalizing properties due to these constituent elements.

What are the benefits of green clay?

  1. Absorption of Impurities: Green clay has a high absorption capacity, allowing it to effectively remove excess sebum, impurities, and toxins from the skin.
  2. Purification: It purifies the skin by removing impurities and unclogging pores. This can help reduce the appearance of blackheads, pimples, and enlarged pores.
  3. Sebum Regulation: By absorbing excess sebum, it helps regulate sebum production, which can be beneficial for people with oily or acne-prone skin.
  4. Skin Toning: Green clay has an astringent action that tones the skin by tightening pores. This can give the skin a firmer appearance.
  5. Relief from Irritations: Thanks to its soothing properties, it can help relieve skin irritations, redness, and itching.
  6. Scalp Cleansing: Used in hair care, green clay cleanses the scalp by removing excess sebum, dandruff, and residues from hair products.
  7. Hair Revitalization: The minerals present in green clay can provide nutrients to the hair, revitalizing it and making it healthier.
