Benefits for the body

Pink Clay isn’t just beneficial for the face. This incredible clay is also a valued ingredient for the body and hair. It can be used as a body mask by applying it to specific areas, such as the back or décolleté. Thanks to its purifying and exfoliating properties, it helps to draw out impurities from the skin. Pink Clay powder can be used as a dry shampoo, and is particularly suitable for hair that tends to get oily easily, as well as sensitive scalps.

How do you use Pink Clay on the face?

Pink Clay, like most types of clay, is used to make masks for the skin. Simply mix some Pink Clay powder with a little water or a hydrosol chosen for its specific benefits. The aim is to get a paste that’s nice and thick, but still “liquid” enough so you can smooth it over your face. Leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse off with clean water. Repeat about once a week.

Tip: Don’t let the Pink Clay dry out completely and crack! For a clay mask to be effective and gentle on the skin, it must remain moist. So remember to spray it regularly with a thermal water mist, hydrosol, or La Brume Systémique.

How do you know which Pink Clay to choose for the face?

Pink Clay comes in two forms: Pink Clay powder and ready-to-use Pink Clay. In both cases, always look for a good-quality clay, if possible one of traceable origin. To get all the benefits of Pink Clay, it shouldn’t be mixed with any additives such as mineral powders or plant oils, as these will alter its composition.

Tip: Pink Clay powder should be stored away from light and humidity. When you rehydrate the powder, it’s best to use a wooden spoon and a glass, ceramic or wooden bowl. Avoid using metal, as this will affect its properties.
