Brazil Clays Red Earth is perfect for soothing oily skin.
Naturally colored, straight from the earth! Our Brazil Clays are kaolin clays that are naturally pigmented due to mineral elements present in the earth—no artificial colorants or dyes are used. Each Brazil Clays color has its own unique mineral profile, giving each one different skin or hair benefits.
Brazil Clays Red Earth is a dark red clay rich in copper and iron oxides, important minerals for skin health. Skin lacking these minerals can be dry and thin with reduced elasticity. Brazil Clays Red Earth is clinically proven to:
- reduce oiliness
- improve skin elasticity
- increase skin firmness
Kaolin is superior to bentonite, illite or montomorillonite clays because it’s more gentle on skin. Other clays have a pH between 7-10, depending on the source of the clay. Ouch! Brazil Clays have a pH of 4-5, which is closer to skin’s natural pH. This makes kaolin more gentle on skin.
Kaolin clay also absorbs less water from skin than other clays, leaving skin feeling less dry and stripped.
Brazil Clays are sustainably mined from the earth in southern Brazil. Its unique characteristics are preserved during extraction through a selective process where the region’s biodiversity is respected and maintained.
