Three clays, multiple benefits

Alban Muller offers three clays ER from France.

  • White clay ER: has a white color because it is strongly leached out by rainwater. It is made up of as much aluminum as silica. White clay is perfect for sensitive skin.
  • Green clay ER: a mixture of illite (majority), kaolin and montmorillonite, green clay ER is rich in calcium and iron. It is particularly suitable for mattifying and purifying oily skin and hair.
  • Red clay ER : Its red color comes from its richness in oxidized iron. It has properties ideal for reducing diffuse red blotches of the face and restore luminosity to the complexion.
