Even with the healthiest skin, pores can become clogged and blocked, resulting in blackheads and blemishes. Rather than resorting to harsh chemical scrubs, a clay masque is a natural and gentle way to effectively cleanse and rebalance your complexion; reducing oiliness, drawing out impurities from clogged pores, and speeding up the healing of blemishes. So how exactly do the active ingredients in our Natural Skincare Clay Cleansing Masque work? Kaolin is a naturally occurring clay substance developed from the weathering of rocks in hot, moist climates. Kaolin contains a high concentration of silica, which acts as a skin detoxifier by removing dead skin cells and promoting cell regeneration. It absorbs excess oil on the skin and removes impurities such as dirt, oil, and cellular debris; reducing sebum production to inhibit the occurrence of breakouts. Comfrey is a perennial herb of the Boraginaceae family that has been used for centuries as a topical treatment for skin wounds. It is a rich source of allantoin, a natural compound known for promoting skin cell regeneration, thereby giving it the ability to treat scars and blemishes, accelerate healing, and improve skin texture. Manuka Oil is extracted from the leaves and small branches of the New Zealand native Manuka Tree, and is renowned for its potent antimicrobial properties. Maori have used it for centuries as a topical treatment for wounds, burns, and skin disorders. Its potent concentration of Sesquiterpenes and Triketones give it its powerful antimicrobial properties, and the ability to combat skin irritations, infection, and acne-causing bacterium. It has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory and tissue repair properties, in order to aid healing and reduce scarring. These super ingredients make our Natural Skincare Clay Cleansing Masque an excellent treatment for oily and acne prone skin, helping detoxify and regenerate cells to reveal smoother, brighter and healthier looking skin.
