The origin of green clay is the rich volcanic earth of the Auvergne region in France, an inexhaustible source of energy.
This geographical location, with a strong natural and geological heritage, has the largest underground water reserves in France.
Because the green clay is extracted at these natural reserves, it is extremely clean.
The grain distribution of the clay is perfectly controlled, even on very fine powder (to less than 20 micrometers).
The purer the clay, the more active ingredients it contains, the more effective it is.
The mineralogical analyzes prove it: this Green Clay is extremely pure.
They prove it doesn't contain quartz.
The fineness of the grains, in addition to its composition, makes the green clay, a light and soft clay when it comes into contact with the skin.
In addition, the stability of Green Clay when mixed with water, as well as the mineralogical stability over time, has been scientifically proven.
These analyzes revealed the unique composition of the Green clay as it consists of three different clays with additional properties and benefits.
(illite, montmorillonite and kaolinite)
See the analysis certificates for this.
Because Green Clay is a mineral, it cannot receive an “organic” quality mark.
Many cosmetic products based on green clay are certified as COSMEBIO every year. They also carry the ECO-CERT quality mark.
French green clay has many benefits for your skin:
- is rich in minerals and trace elements
The green clay is formed by the collection of certain minerals.
These are transported by water after destruction of rocks by erosion.
On the southern side of France it is perfectly sunny.
The green clay absorbs the sun's rays and a large part of the heat (along with the underground heat) and is therefore rich in energies.
150 gram jar = 2 body treatments or 15 facial treatments
3.5 kg bucket = 55 body treatments or 350 facial treatments
This clay can be used on the entire body, but when used on the face, do not leave it on for longer than 10 minutes.
Green clay is often applied to the face, arms and legs.
