Spiced Clay Mask | MARINE CLAY & ROSEHIP

 Invigorate and Clarify

Clay is a rock or soil material made up of aluminum and iron silicates, magnesium, calcium, copper, sodium, potassium, manganese and crystallized into very fine particles. Clay is one of the primordial materials used by men since the dawn of time to build shelters, to craft utensils and garments, and to heal.

Purify your skin once a week for maximum health and beauty. Our mask will deeply cleanse, invigorate and clarifie the skin. Clay acts as a safe and gentle alternative to harsh exfoliation treatments like peels, acids and enzymes. With the intelligence of nature, it absorbs dead skin cells, but leaves the living — all without damaging its protective hydrolipid barrier.

Use weekly for its transformative benefits. As needed, it is a wonderful spot-treatment for blemishes.

Stimulate cell renewal with precious and rare ingredients and draw out skin impurities, revealing a radiant and smooth face.

Marine Green Clay - It comes from a quarry located in the extreme south of Sicily, in a clean area that is sunny and breezy all year round. The clay is excavated and dried during the summer months. Being of marine origin, our clay is very rich in mineral salts and trace elements, which contribute to make the clay particularly active. It contains bivalent iron; a younger and more effective iron that gives clay a colour that ranges from green to blue. The presence of Silica helps slow down the ageing process, making our Clay an exceptional natural anti-ageing agent.

Rosehip Fruit has a unique chemical make-up that includes high Vitamin C content as well as Vitamin E and Vitamin A, making the fruit an excellent brightener. It has been used for centuries and studied at length for its ability to reduce the appearance of scars, repair deep cellular damage, and minimize the appearance of fine lines by supporting collagen and connective tissue. Ours is wild forged right here in Nova Scotia by us.
