Lets Talk About Clay

There are so many different Clays available today that it can be a bit confusing knowing which one to choose. Pure, mineral rich Clays and Spa Minerals are a natural way to cleanse, revitalise and detoxify your skin. Clays and Spa Minerals will give your skin vitality and a healthy glow by increasing circulation and oxygen flow to the skin.

Kaolin (white) Clay - The mildest of the Clays, and not particularly drawing, which makes it suitable for dry skin. Kaolin helps to stimulate circulation whilst gently exfoliating the skin. For all skin types this Clay is calming, cooling and softening. It is ideal for sensitive and irritated skin, dull complexions and sufferers of rosacea. Kaolin Clay is included in the Green Tea and Rice Clay Mask.

Argiletz Pink Clay - Mild and gentle in its actions; it is used for extra-sensitive and mature skin. Pink Clay exhibits a softening and toning effect on the skin's texture. You will find this Clay in our Pumpkin and Papaya Clay Mask.

Argiletz Yellow Clay - Recommended for all skin types. It is restorative and revitalising for tired and neglected skin. This clay features in our Cucumber and Camellia Clay Mask.

Argiletz Green Clay - Is the Clay which possesses the most absorbent action on the skin; it is used mainly for oily, neglected skin and in the treatment of acne. It is a little too drawing for dry or mature skin; it cleanses, exfoliates, smooths and softens. This Clay is featured in the Rosemary and Coconut Clay Mask.

Rhassoul Clay - This Clay is also known as "Micronized Moroccan Lava Clay" or "Red Moroccan Clay" and comes from deep under the Atlas Mountains of Morocco; the only known source in the world. It is a totally natural product that is used today as it was hundreds of years ago. It has the ability to absorb oil and impurities from the skin. This Clay contains higher percentages of silica and magnesium along with potassium and calcium than other Clays. Rhassoul Clay is included in our Rosemary and Coconut Clay Mask.

Golden Spa Minerals - This mineral blend helps increase the activity in Clays and has amazing healing properties. Zeolite minerals are known for their ability to draw out toxins and help healing processes. Golden Spa Minerals are suitable for all skin types. Spa Minerals are important ingredients in all of our Clay Masks.
