Clay for Stunning Skin
At Sweet Living Company we ensure that our exceptional quality clays are naturally sourced, dried and mechanically crushed. We do not use any synthetically manufactured ingredients in our products. When combined with other healthy anti-aging skincare habits, using a clay-based mask 2-3 times a week is a great way to keep your skin looking radiant. Clay-based beauty treatments naturally exfoliate the skin, refine pores, inject beauty minerals, increase circulation and absorb impurities.
1. Ultrafine Canadian Glacial Marine Clay
Profile: Naturally sourced and scooped off the coast of Vancouver Island, then dried.
Origin: Vancouver Island
This clay is a product of erosion caused by the movement and melting of Canadian glaciers. It eventually deposits as a sediment in the ocean and becomes enriched with beneficial phytoplankton. This is one of the most pure natural clays on the market in terms of its concentration of anti-aging minerals. Glacial clay’s net negative ion charge attracts most positively charged bacteria and toxins, thereby detoxifying, rejuvenating and revitalizing the skin. It is reputed to stimulate blood circulation, soften the skin texture and neutralize the skin with rich sea minerals to help smooth out wrinkles and slow the aging process. Another beneficial element of this clay is its micro size particles and its amazing ability to absorb. The osmotic power of the clay pulls moisture up from deep inner tissues to hydrate the surface of the skin, and also cleans the skin without dehydrating it.
2. Bentonite Clay (Montmorillonite)
Profile: Sourced from a lage natural Bentonite deposit. Surface mined using lengthy exploratory, quality surveying, permission and reclamation procedures.
Origin: Wyoming, USA
Bentonite is a finely textured, naturally occurring clay that is obtained from Volcanic ash sediments. It is an excellent choice for those looking for detoxifying properties as it draws out toxins, treats Acne, refines pores and prevents blackheads from forming. With over 70 trace anti-aging minerals, Bentonite is an exceptionally healing clay that contains high concentrations of Silica, Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Iron, and Potassium (to name a few). These minerals encourage the regeneration of skin tissue, reduce the appearance of scars, even out skin tone and leave the skin feeling soft and velvety.
3. Kaolin Clay
Profile: White Kaolin, naturally sourced (not manufactured) and mined out of the earth.
The use of Kaolin clay originated from the Romans, Greeks, Egyptians and the Chinese! Kaolin is a gentle clay that improves blood circulation, absorbs toxins and cleanses the skin. Dead skin cells adhere to this nourishing mineral-rich substance and are washed away, removing impurities without removing the skins natural oils. This clay is a great choice for dry or sensitive skin types.
