Clay has been used as a quick and effective beauty trick for thousands of years all over the world. It's a star ingredient that comes in lots of colours, thanks to different mineral properties, meeting different skincare needs. Here’s your colour-coded guide to which one to use:
GREEN CLAY CONTROLS SEBUM
Green clay, often called French green clay, is the most commonly used in skincare and it's great for combination, oily and acne-prone skin. It is a bio-mineral that is made up of both decomposed plant material and trace minerals, and as such is naturally rich in calcium, aluminium and magnesium. This helps to purify, regenerate and detoxify the skin, while controlling excess sebum. It is also a highly effective antibacterial, making it an all-round great skincare product.
PINK CLAY SOFTENS
A subtle blend of red and white clay, pink clay is the gentlest of all the clays, which makes its cleansing action fantastic for sensitive and irritated skin. Rich in trace elements, which include kaolinite, iron and calcite, pink clay aids regeneration of skin cells, and used once a week it will calm and moisturise the skin.
WHITE CLAY PURIFIES
White clay is essentially kaolin, and is known for its gentle cleansing qualities. Its silica-rich properties make it brilliant for softening, purifying and cleansing sensitive skin without irritating. It doesn’t draw out oils, so is ideal for dry skin, too.
RED CLAY BRIGHTENS
Thanks to its complex range of minerals, red clay is highly absorbent and has excellent exfoliating properties. It has been used for centuries to help restore radiance to tired faces, even out skin tone, close pores and smooth skin. If you are susceptible to blackheads, regular treatment with red clay will work wonders. You’ll also notice a difference if you suffer from dry, flaky skin.
BLACK CLAY DETOXIFIES
Known for its iron-rich content and oxygenating properties, black clay contains active cleansing ingredients that nourish skin and eliminate toxins. It is also rich in magnesium and calcium, and is great for combatting blocked pores and smoothing out wrinkles.
