Our Brazilian clay is from sources committed to the sustainable utilisation of the Amazon rainforest.
Pink clay is perfect for balancing stressed and sensitive skin. It helps hydrate, firm and brighten, moisturise and improve the overall texture of the skin.
Brazilian clays are said to have the highest mineral potential in the world thanks to the rich environmental conditions they have been formed in, a mixture of ancient mountainous ranges and deep sedimentary basins.
The largest basin, accounting for 40% of the whole South American continent, is drained by the Amazon and its tributaries, with the Parana System, covering 14.5% of Brazil, being another basin of significance. It is from these basins that our Brazilian clay comes from.
Brazil's rich soil diversity shows traces of volcanic ash and minerals dating back thousands of years and enriching the clay with iron oxides, magnesium salts and calcium, among others. These minerals make Brazilian clay fantastic for skincare applications.
Clay has been used for thousands of years to absorb toxic substances in the body and eliminate them, to stimulate, reinvigorate and rejuvenate skin cells and tissues, cleanse and beautify, making them an ideal ingredient for skin care and natural beauty products.
