Clay has traditionally been used to DRAW out (not dry out) impurities through the processes of adsorption and absorption. As good as gold, the Earth’s silica, iron, magnesium, calcium, sodium, zinc and other minerals bind with metabolic and environmental toxins that other types of cleansing just don’t address. The bond they form is called an ionic bond, and we refer to the type of cleansing that our masks provide as ionic cleansing.

In addition to this special housekeeping duty, our clay mixes are formulated to support specific functional issues. By keeping the surface hydrated with various sea "weeds" (Kelp and Irish Moss) and maintaining an intact structural barrier, additional minerals from the sea as well as added zinc stay behind to energize the cells and increase intra-cellular communication.

All clay masks bring more blood flow to the surface of the skin, increasing circulation. On sensitive skin or individuals who have a tendency towards redness, this may give them a flushed look upon removal. This is a beneficial action and should not cause alarm. The Sense & Sensitivity is suitable for all types of sensitive skin--in fact, when mixed it is very much like calamine lotion.

How to begin working our clay masks into your rituals and skin care regimen:
Use as a cleanser 1-2 times a week. Great before a shower.
Use as a mask 1x/week
Make a paste and use as a spot treatment when needed.
