It is naturally anti-inflammatory and helps to renovate the elasticity of the skin. Clay contains beneficial minerals - kaolin, calcium, phosphate, iron, magnesium and zinc which help to regenerate the skin, maintain its youth and elasticity. Many skincare products available on the high street use small amounts of clay, but did you know that raw blue clay powder is highly effective when simply mixed to a paste with spring water? Simply mix to a smooth non-drip paste then apply to your face. Leave for a maximum of 15 to 20 mins then splash off with clean water.
Sutton based company ‘Pure Skin Indulgence' import the finest blue clay from Latvia. "We use only natural clean resources to create pure skin care products that are not only beneficial to the skin, but also environmentally friendly creating the minimal amount of waste." The source of blue clay is in the Baltic region of Latvia - from a small town called Cesis, on the River Gauja Valley. The town is developed as a health region due to it's natural resources - spring water, and clay that is found near the town. The clay is extracted from a source 20M deep in the earth. The population of the town is only 18 000 people, therefore the pollution of the natural resources is almost non existent. "Here at Natural Skin Indulgence we offer raw blue clay powder for home made cosmetics, facials, body wraps, body treatments etc, and are developing a clay face and body scrub with almonds, and chocolate clay mask."
