Renowned for its strong absorptive powers, bentonite clay sucks up deep-rooted impurities that cause your skin to look bumpy. Unclogging pores and drawing debris to the surface, bentonite is a volcanic clay that has been used for centuries as a powerful but gentle skincare ingredient.
Kaolin clay—bentonite's bestie— absorbs excess oil without parching your skin. The minerals in kaolin clay are able to eliminate impurities that build up in + around the hair follicle, balance the overproduction of oil and deeply cleanse skin. A fierce antimicrobial, kaolin fights active breakouts by dialing down irritation and working with niacinamide to calm redness.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Another talented antimicrobial that eases irritation, ACV buddies up with mineral-rich bentonite and kaolin clays to unclog pores more efficiently. This mild acid, when used overtime, can also help to restore the pH balance of your skin.
Salicylic acid (BHA)
Unlike other exfoliating acids, salicylic is a deep-diving BHA that’s able to wiggle inside pores to dislodge dirt and lift + impurities. With use overtime, sal acid is a superior ingredient for eliminating blackheads for good, and in combination with mineral-rich clays and sulfur is able to block future breakouts from forming.
A (frankly underrated!) antimicrobial that sloughs the top layer of skin to accelerate cell turnover and encourages new skin to take its place. A concentration gentle enough for sensitive skin types, sulfur also nixes impurities from within the pore. Consider her salicylic acid’s half-cyster :)
Trio of AHAs
Whereas salicylic acid (BHA) does its work within the pore, lactic, tartaric + malic acids tackle the skin’s surface. These refining agents exfoliate surface skin to retexturize, smoothing bumpy areas and improving skin tone and consistency.
Niacinamide works with the natural substances in your skin to shrink the appearance of redness, soothe breakouts and improve the appearance of uneven skin tone. Your skin's calm, logical, level-headed friend, niacinamide can also help to repair signs of damage.
Clay, when not paired with nourishing ingredients, can dry out the skin and strip its natural oils. Jojoba steps in to negate the drying effects to support your skin barrier during masking. An emollient that prevents overdrying and retains hydration during masking and after your rinse-off, Jojoba is non-comedogenic which means it doesn’t clog pores.
I love this clay mask. It absorbs my oil and I love that it doesn't "shedd" product when it's on the face dry. I've had other clay masks that "shedd" products off the face so the whole area around gets all powdery. This one does not do that to me! I love how it makes my face feel and look.
It works really well. Good texture and inoffensive smell. Just functional and effective, no gimmick. I’ll buy again when my tube runs out for sure, but that will probably be a long time away because a little goes a long way with this stuff.
My skin responds really well to sulpher- so this is the perfect mask for me!
Words can not describe this product.
Applied it to my husband skin and found myself watching it and looking for the little black dots which I am assuming is unclogging the skin. Amazing to watch
