Anjelika creates her own blend of Italian, French green and white clay, Hawaiian red clay, Moroccan red clay, seaweed, and pearl powder.
Clay has been used around the world for centuries by indigenous people as an important medicinal and cosmetic tool. Externally, clays are used to absorb excess oil, dirt, and toxins from the skin while simultaneously exfoliating and improving skin circulation. Clays come in a variety of colors such as red, green, white, gray, and can range in texture from coarse and heavy to fine and fluffy. The different colors of clays occur because of their natural mineral content.
Our blend of cosmetic clay literally "drinks" oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your skin. Its toning action stimulates the skin by bringing fresh blood to damaged skin cells, revitalizing the complexion. Our clay is a bio-mineral, and contains decomposed plant matter as well as many trace minerals, such as: silica, aluminum, magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, selenium, cobalt, manganese, phosphorous, silicon, micro-algaes, kelp, and phyto-nutrients. Cosmetically, our clay is revered for its ability to stimulate blood and lymph circulation, remove dead skin cells, absorb impurities and fats, exfoliate & cleanse, tone and strengthen connective tissues. After using the clay, skin feels fresh, smooth, radiant, and soft. Our clay is suitable for all skin types, whether it be oily, blemish prone, normal, sensitive, dry, or mature skin.
For mature skin, we are enhancing our formula by adding pearl powder. Pearl powder is rich in minerals, amino acids and co-factors that make it one of the premier anti-aging substances. Pearl Powder can help prevent the overproduction of melanin, which causes freckles and dark patches on the skin. It can help prevent wrinkles and sagging. Consistent use of pearl powder can eliminate blemishes such as colored spots, pimples and boils. Constant use can help assure that the skin will age much more slowly and that it will not be easily harmed by either time or the elements.
Face Mask: Mix a small amount with water until a smooth paste is obtained. Apply a thin layer of the paste to your face. Leave for 30 minutes or until dried before rinsing with warm water. Apply weekly. For certain skin conditions like acne, use it daily on trouble spots, and weekly as part of a complete facial treatment until inflammation subsides, then continue to use clay twice a week.
In addition, those with normal-dry skin may use honey, yogurt, cream, milk, or vegetable glycerin instead of water, or can add pureed avocado, cucumber, or a few drops of a carrier oil (such as Jojoba oil) to the mixture. Those with oily skin may add Witch Hazel extract, vinegar, lemon juice, or an egg white to the clay mixture. Those with acne prone skin can add vinegar or lemon juice to the mixture, and 1-2 drops of Tea Tree or Lavender essential oil.
Please discontinue clay if you are experiencing unpleasant symptoms.
