Kaolin clay is a mild cleanser for every skin type, removes impurities and absorbs excess oils without causing inflammation or redness.
Kaolin clay has been used for centuries to absorb excess oil from the skin and prevent breakouts before they start. It's also perfect to help repair acne-damaged skin. For some people, regular use helps balance their skin's oil production, making them less likely to suffer from oily skin. Kaolin clay becomes a smooth paste in combination with water and the small particles can gently exfoliate the skin. Because Kaolin clay is so soft, it's also suitable for sensitive skin.

Make a face mask or hair mask with Kaolin Clay by mixing it with water or rose water. Optionally add a tablespoon of honey, oil or aloe vera gel.
For the hair: The amount used for the hair depends on the length and thickness of the hair. On average, 2 to 3 tablespoons are enough for the hair. Water can be added until the clay forms a spreadable paste. Let the clay sit on your hair for 20 to 30 minutes before washing it out.
For the face: 1 to 2 teaspoons of clay is enough. Mix with water and apply on your face (avoid the eye area!). Leave the mask on for 20 minutes and rinse. Can be repeated several times a week.
