Are you looking for a natural ingredient that can serve multiple skin-care purposes? Kaolin clay could be your one-stop solution. This all-natural ingredient, filled with essential minerals, can be used as a cleanser, exfoliator and even a mask. That’s why it’s the main ingredient in our popular Purifying 3-in-1 Wash, Scrub and Mask.
Kaolin clay is one of the gentlest facial clays. It has kaolinite, a mineral that consists of layered silicate and it’s suitable for almost all skin types.
Here are 5 ways Koalin Clay can benefit your skin.
1. Absorbs extra oil
This fine clay soaks up extra oil (also called sebum) on your skin’s surface, helping to keep your pores unclogged and prevent spots. The beauty of it is that, unlike some other clays, kaolin only controls only excess oil and doesn’t affect the natural oil in the deeper layers. And because it absorbs only a small amount of water, it won’t dry out your skin.
2. It’s a natural cleanser
Kaolin clay has cleansing properties so it can remove dirt and the impurities from your pores that lead to acne breakouts. It is gentle to use, and cleans your skin without making it dry and dull.
3. It gently exfoliates
Kaolin clay is an excellent exfoliator. It helps remove even the smallest bits of dirt, pollutants and bacteria from your skin, as well as dead skin cells, to deep-clean pores and help reduce embarrassing breakouts.
4. Calms your skin
Kaolin clay has soothing qualities that can calm your skin. It has mild healing properties that can help to soothe any type of irritation and redness.
5. Evens out skin tone
With regular use, kaolin can help even out your skin tone, by stimulating your skin cells to renew more quickly and brighten your complexion.
This wonder ingredient is not the only reason to get your hands on our 3-in-1. It also has Rooibos antioxidants to protect your skin, Baobab extract to help balance sebum and reduce oiliness, salicylic acid to help treat and prevent spots, and Shea Butter and Jojoba to soften and condition your skin.
