French Red Clay comes from Hematite Iron, its coloring the result of the copper oxides contained in this rock. Rich in kaolinite, illite, montmorillonitea and calcite, French Red Clay is best suited for normal to oily skin types. It is great as a regenerative, replenishing product.
Appearance: Fine red colored powder.
Benefits: French Red Clay cleanses and sloughs off dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, leaving it refreshed and toned with a rejuvenated look. It is most widely used in cosmetic manufacturing. This lovely copper colored clay is rich in minerals that help draw toxins out of the body.
Application: French Red Clay can be used in body wraps, soap making, face masks, mineral based or cream based cleansers, face or body scrubs, cosmetics and facial powders.
Caution: Caution should be exercised as clays may stain fabric.
Deep Cleansing Face Mask Recipe:
Combine 1 oz of clay to 3 tbsp of water; add 1 tsp of vegetable glycerin and 2 drops each of geranium and grapefruit pink essential oils to form a paste. Apply to the skin and leave for about 10 minutes and wash off with warm water. Floral water or aloe vera gel juice can be substituted for water.
Detox Bath Recipe:
Mix 1 cup magnesium flakes, 1 cup baking soda, and 1/4 cup of powdered French red clay in mixing bowl. Stir well to combine, making sure to break up any clumps that form. In a small mixing cup, combine 4 tablespoons castor oil and 6 drops of your favorite essential oil. Drizzle oil mixture into the dry mixture, stirring continually. Keep stirring until you see clumps form. Stir well to break up clumps and fully incorporate all ingredients. Store in an airtight glass jar for up to one month. To use, scoop 1/2 to 1 cup of mixture into a warm bath. Soak for 20 minutes, rinsing clay residue off your body before exiting the bath. Pat skin dry so that oil remains behind to moisturize.
