Kaolin

What It Does

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 Blush Rose Earth is a rose clay that balances skin to leave it feeling soft and free of grime. It is ideal for sensitive skin types and has been clinically proven to exchange ions with skin, which is an indicator of the clay’s detox effects.

Why Choose Kaolin

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.

How It's Made

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.
