Moroccan Red Clay (aka Rhassoul Clay) has been used for the last 1400 years as a soap, shampoo, and skin conditioner. Luxuriantly smooth to the touch, it's highly absorbent and exfoliating qualities make this clay a must have in top notch professional spas. It comes from ancient deposits in the fertile Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Its use in history as a cosmetic clay can be traced back to ancient Rome and Egypt where it was used by nobility to tone and enrich the skin.
Kaolin clay, the most versatile and easily applied clay is commonly added to skincare products and cosmetics. White Cosmetic clay, also known as White Kaolin clay, is a very fine and light clay that has natural absorbency properties. White Cosmetic clay is found in virtually all powdered and dry cosmetics and most wet cosmetics, including soaps, scrubs, poultices, deodorants, facial powders and masks.
Being one of the mildest of all clays it is suitable for people with sensitive skin. It helps stimulate circulation to the skin while gently exfoliating and cleansing it. It does not draw oils from the skin, so it can be used on dry skin types without negative results. In our soap it is used for contrasting whites with other darker hues to give the soap a distinctive swirling effect. Potentially one could leave out the kaolin clay in this soap, however I have found that it makes the soap silky. Great Shave Bar! It is gentle for underarm shaving and around the bathing suit area. You will kiss stubble and ingrown hairs goodbye.
The green clay from France acts as an absorbent. It's powers are due to the constitution of its micro molecules. It literally “drinks” oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your skin. Its toning action stimulates the skin. If you're looking for improving your skin tone, minimizing ashy dry skin use the green clay. Using this clay in a soap provides that added benefit in removing bacteria and toxins from the skin, just as triclosan. Except it is natural.
