In cosmetics, kaolin helps to cleanse and exfoliates dry cells and debris from the surface of the skin. We use it for these qualities in our fresh cleansers and face masks. It adds absorbency, texture and bulk to cleansers. It's also in our soaps and our dusting powders, too. We blend this soft clay with all sorts of beautiful essential oils and fresh ingredients, mixing it into a versatile paste so that we can mold it into products. Clays and powders are natural preservatives, and we will use kaolin in combination with other ingredients in some of our self-preserving formulas.
Kaolin (also know as China clay) is a naturally occurring soft clay. Its color varies from white to dark brown and we mostly use the lighter, cosmetic grade kaolin in our products.
