Perfection: Pore-Refining Clay

$34.00

For centuries, clay has traditionally been used to draw out impurities through absorption. Better than gold, earth's silica, iron, magnesium, calcium, sodium, zinc and other minerals bind with environmental toxins while removing old sebum that may be clogging your pores.

Perfection: Pore-Refining Clay is a flawless blend of our two favorite clays. Montmorillonite—Green Clay—is both antiseptic and healing. Derived from volcanic deposits, it is by far the richest in mineral composition. It energizes the connective tissue with gentle stimulation and is effective in promoting lymphatic drainage and circulation, increasing the flow of oxygen and speeding the elimination of wastes. Rhassoul clay’s most impressive property is its unique absorption capacity, due to its high level of ionic exchange. This makes it the most gentle of all clays and is used to smooth and improve even dry skin. It has been used for over 12 centuries in North Africa, South Europe and The Middle East.

Spot treatment: mix a pinch of any clay mixture with equal part water and form a paste in your palm. You may want to add 1 small drop of an essential oil (such as geranium for blemishes or lavender with sensitive clay for sunburns). Dot onto problem spot or area. Leave on overnight, or allow to dry & remove with a damp cloth. This is also great for insect bites and stings.

Facial masque (once a week): mix 2 scoops any Clay Mix with 3 scoops water water, herbal tea (fennel, chamomile, rose, etc.) or aloe juice to make a smooth paste (honey is a great addition as well). You can add a pinch of Sow Your Wild Oats or a drop of the women’s vitality oil blend. Lightly apply over damp/wet skin. Relax with a damp/wet washcloth over your face and witch hazel pads over your eyes for 10 minutes before removing the masque, intermittently misting your face with the Hydrosol of your choosing. You can also wear your masque around the house, vacuuming, dancing, yoga-ing, etc...please experiment! Try letting it dry if you love that tight feeling (it’s certainly better for you than other ways of getting that tiny-pore look!) and press with a damp cloth just before you are about to take it off.

All Perfection Clays are hand-mixed in small batches to perfection! Each batch takes 6 weeks of weekly infusions of herbs. 100% vegan and contains absolutely no chemicals or preservatives!
