Clay: an ancient natural remedy

The one that we find in our face cleanser in its white and pink version is a healing substance that has been used for centuries. Its benefits are numerous but the main one is certainly the purifying and detoxifying property. But what is clay? It is a mineral deposit, that is obtained from rocks and their natural erosion process. It is rich in minerals and vitamins and it is therefore important to ensure that it comes from controlled sources (as in our case) because if the soil from which it is taken is polluted, its quality would inevitably be compromised.

But speaking of clay in general is not very useful because there are various types of it. In this article we will talk about the two types of clay used in the tukiki face cleanser, namely the pink and the white one, but you should know that also the green, red, yellow and Ghassoul clay exist.

White clay

White clay, also called kaolin, is indicated for its kind and light action which makes it perfect even for the driest and most delicate skin. It has an exfoliating action that helps to remove dead cells with extreme delicacy, without affecting the lipid part of the epidermis, and promoting cell regeneration and the softness of the complexion. It also has lightening qualities, for both the skin and the teeth, therefore a mask based on this product is indicated if you want a smooth, healthy and bright skin.

It performs a sebum-regulating action so it is perfect for the cleansing of oily skin, helping in the fight against blemishes, blackheads and acne. Its healing properties make it an excellent ally against cracked skin and stretch marks.

But white clay is not only excellent for the skin. Even for your hair, it can be an amazing product: it fights dandruff and gives strength and volume, contrasting dry, dull and tending to break hair.

The pink clay

Pink clay is instead a mixture of white and red clay. The latter owes its color to the presence of iron and merges the classic detoxifying and purifying properties of clay with a stimulating function of the microcirculation. It therefore improves the complexion of the skin and it is indicated for those suffering from redness and couperose. Your face will remain bright and revitalized.

If used on the scalp it can absorb excess sebum, remove impurities and stimulate the skin. Obviously, the revitalizing action of red clay is mitigated by the presence of white clay which, as we already said, is so delicate that it is also suitable for children's skin
