Kaolin Clays are some of the most versatile ingredients that you can use in natural skincare. They can be incorporated into body powders, facials, scrubs, masks and many more skin care products. Available in a variety of beautiful colours, these clays when mixed together give a distinct and striking colour without compromising on the effect! Whether used for presentation, or in treatments, taking advantage of Kaolin Clays similar natures and aesthetic colours present a unique opportunity to be creative.
Here are the various types of clays and their effect on skin.
The soft, fluffy texture and pure white appearance of White Kaolin Clay make it not only aesthetically pleasing, but ideal for mild exfoliation when used in a cleanser or scrub. This gentle clay is perfect for sensitive skin for the silky slip it provides. White Kaolin clay can be used as a face or body mask along with almost any wetting agent, including Hydrosols, Humectants, or Gels. Try adding milk, yogurt or even pureed cucumbers to your fresh masks.
Like other Kaolin clays, Yellow Kaolin has mild absorption and a soft texture. The difference lies in its slightly stronger absorption than is found in White Kaolin. Still maintaining its soft texture, it is safe for use on most skin types, giving it the signature versatile skin care ingredient while acting as a gentle cleanser and defoliant, stimulating circulation, and leaving skin fresh and bright. Given its softness it is ideal for daily use and can replace soaps and face washes with chemicals. Its earthy gold colour makes it an attractive additive for honey themed products! AyurDeva loves Yellow Kaolin Clay!
Red Kaolin Clay has a bold muddy red orange colour and is one of the strongest Kaolin Clays. While most clay in the Kaolin range are ideal for dry, sensitive, and normal skin types, Red Kaolin is more suitable for oily skin. It has a considerably stronger drawing power than other Kaolin Clays and therefore care should be taken not to use it on the face more than once a week. It makes a great addition to acne masks or detoxifying body scrubs.
This is AyurDeva’s pick of all Kaolin Clay. Nature has skilfully combined the Red and White Kaolin to their ideal balance to create Pink Kaolin Clay. This beautiful clay is ideal for normal skin types due to its unique balance of properties. The Red Kaolin Clay provides a deep absorption of toxins and excess oil from the skin while the gentle White Kaolin keeps the skin from becoming irritated or overly dried. Unlike most cosmetic clay, Pink Kaolin has a very vibrant, bold colour and makes a lovely addition to Rose themed scrubs, masks and dusting powders!
