Clear Skin with Kaolin Clay

Clear Skin with Kaolin Clay - Three Ships

As the weather changes, so does your skin. Did you know that with extra heat and humidity, our skin produces more sebum - resulting in oily skin? This is the perfect time to use a clay mask that contains Kaolin Clay to help draw out oil and dirt from deep beneath the surface of your skin. 

What is Kaolin Clay?

Kaolin Clay is a white clay that is often used in clay masks to lightly draw out impurities from the skin. When prepared as a mask, the clay dries on the skin, causing pores to tighten and the skin to start feeling temporarily firm, toned, and refreshed. This ingredient works as a great base clay for those with sensitive and dry skin.

Skin Benefits of Kaolin Clay

  1. Absorbs Oil: Is often used in gentle clay masks as a base to absorb oil from the skin, leaving skin feeling smoother and refreshed.
  2. Prevents Clogged Pores: Attracts dirt from the skin and impurities from the pores to reduce breakouts.
  3. Gentle for Sensitive Skin: Kaolin Clay is gentle and mild, making it a great base for people who want to deeply cleanse their skin with a mineral mask but do not want a stripping mask.

Where You Can Find Kaolin Clay

You can find it in our Detox Green Tea Antioxidant Clay Mask which only contains three simple ingredients: Kaolin Clay, French Green Clay, and Green Tea Extract. Detox helps to revive irritated skin by absorbing excess oil, leaving skin looking brightened, smoothed, and youthful.
