Pink kaolin clay, also known as rose clay, is a highly absorbent clay that cleanses the skin. This pink kaolin clay was mined from France. It is known to tighten pores, reduce irritation, flush out harmful toxins, and reduce inflammation. It is very gentle, so we recommend this clay to anyone with normal, dry or sensitive skin.
For best results use a wooden or plastic spoon mix 1 tsp of clay with 1 tsp of water, rosewater or your liquid of choice in a plastic, glass or ceramic bowl until it creates a paste, not too thick or too thin. Use a brush or clean fingers to evenly distribute onto your face. Leave on for 5-8 minutes not allowing the clay to fully dry on your face. It shouldn’t be hard or painful to move the muscles in your face. With a washcloth use cold or warm (not hot) water to remove the clay using a circular motion. Pat dry and follow with a toner and moisturizer.
How to store: Always use glass, wood or plastic when storing natural clays, never allowing it to touch metal since clays will absorb the metals and become less effective. Keep in a cool, dry place.
