French Green Clay
Our French Green Clay is a great choice for oily skin types as it possesses the most absorbent action on the skin. Use it in your soap making as a natural colorant for a subtle pastel green colour.

To use as colourant in soap making:

Cold Processed Soap Rate:
1 tablespoon per kilo of soap.  Mix with either distilled water or thinly traced soap.

Melt and Pour Soap Rate:  1 teaspoon per 500g of soap base (all types).  Mix into a paste with either distilled water or glycerine and gently stir into the melted soap.

Also suitable for facial masques, scrubs, liquid soaps and shampoos too!

Appearance: Light green coloured powder.

Benefits: French Green Clay absorbs and removes impurities from the skin, revealing the fresh surface of the skin to provide a healthy looking glow. When prepared as a mask, the clay dries on the skin causing pores to tighten and the skin starts to feel firm, toned and refreshed. French Green Clay can be used in mineral baths to promote relaxation of the body and a sense of well-being. It is suitable for all skin types.
Caution should be exercised as clays may stain fabric.

French Green Clay comes from the sedimentation of Silico-aluminum, its coloring the result of the oxides contained in these rocks. Its unique composition includes Iron, Silica, Aluminum, Magnesium, Calcium, Titanium, Sodium and Potassium. French Green Clay is prepared for the commercial market by a process of sun-drying and crushing. After the clay has been mined, it is spread in the sun to remove excess water. It is then ground by large hydraulic crushers and micronized, or finely pulverized. The last stage in the process is a final period of sun-drying to remove the last traces of water.
