French Green Clay
Like all our other clay masks, our French Green clay is blended with Sea Algae and herbs to assure a complete cleansing, drainage, detoxification and exfoliation program relying on the properties of these valuable elements put together for our benefit. The green clays are used in skin care for oily skin, blemished skin or problem skins. They are used on normal skins only when intense drainage and detoxification is wanted.
How to use: Mix enough clay blend with some distilled water or better still, our hydrolates, until you obtain a smooth creamy mixture. Spread the mixture on the skin to be treated and keep it moist for at least 20 minutes. This is the times it takes for the clay to be efficient. Keeping it until it dries as advised by some individuals is just a waste of time and money. Once dry, the clay is no longer active and therefore useless. To keep it moist just spray some distilled water on the surface of the clay. Remove with a cotton ball and water and rinse thoroughly. Hydrate the skin afterwards with our hydrolates and nourish with our Fusion oils.

Dr. Paul's Boulevard: I have been dealing with clay for over 50 years, of which 16 years in my practice. Green clay have been used mostly in natural health care for actions far beyond general skin care. The green clays availabe for natural skin care are usually either Montmorillonites or Illites. The Bentonites are just Montmorillonites full of volcanic ashes. Clay is a mineral crystal (tetrahedric structure) composed mostly of silica and aluminum (silico aluminate). Its actions and powers are exceptional and even though some make fun of its use, it is well worth the effort to use it at all times and in all instances. It is quite an exceptional element coming directly from the earth, manufactured after 4 million years of hard labor and process. Never underestimate the value of this material.
