What Are The Benefits of Natural Clay?

We love to fill our bodies with organic, natural food as nature intended. Why should our skin be any different? Just as packaged foods contain nasty preservatives to prolong their shelf lives – the mass-produced creams, serums, masks we use are no different.

So we make our own for three main reasons!

  1. We know that the ingredients are natural and straight from the Earth.
  2. We know that no unnecessary extra have been added, including harmful chemicals.
  3. We get to choose the clay that is right for us and our skin!
