Clays originate from the superficial layer of the Earth’s crust. Because of their abundance, people have used clays for millennia, their remarkable properties allowing for multiple applications across a wide variety of activities.
Cosmetic clays are particularly unique due to their:
The absorbent and adsorbent properties of each type of clay will vary according to their composition.
100% natural products of mineral origin, clays for cosmetics are multi-action active ingredients. Clays come in many different types depending on the number of layers and minerals they contain. They are found in nature in a wide variety of colors, each with its own specific properties:
Our clays are sun-dried, stored in appropriate conditions to ensure proper ventilation, and then very finely crushed. The clays we use are also ionized to ensure their microbiological cleanliness. Usable in hot or cold conditions, clays must be dispersed in the aqueous phase at the start of the manufacturing process to ensure the formula is homogeneous. Depending on the amount of clay incorporated into the finished product, the pH may be slightly basic. The pH should therefore be adjusted at the end of the manufacturing process.
Clays can be used in numerous products, including:
Clays also provide natural color to cosmetic products according to their color and dosage used.
The amount of clay used in cosmetic formulations depends on the type of care:
