Pink Kaolin Clay.
Milder than red clay, but slightly more “pulling” than white clay – this pink cosmetic clay has the ability to absorb dirt, oil, and bacteria from your pores.
To use, simply add warm distilled water to form a soft paste, apply to your face, avoiding the eye area. Allow to set and wash off with warm water. It’s that simple and yet very effective!
Please note, that Pink Kaolin Clay is best suited for “normal” to oily skin types. If you have sensitive or very dry skin, white kaolin clay would best suit you.
If your skin is suffering from a specific problem, you can easily change the basic recipe (above) to accommodate your own unique need:
Very oily skin: add a little FRESH lemon juice to help draw out oils and tone the skin.
Dry skin: Add a little expeller-pressed mayonnaise (or plain yogurt works well, too), or mashed up avocado – your skin will feel TERRIFIC!
Or try this bath recipe!
- 1/2 cup dried buttermilk powder
- 1 cup dead sea salts, fine grain
- 3 Tablespoons white kaolin, French green, French red, or pink clay.
- 10 drops essential oils of your choice (or none at all for an unscented bath experience)
Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the essentials oils (if using) and stir very well. Add to rushing water and soak your pains away!
Clays can also be used to naturally color homemade cosmetic products. Using this in bath bombs, melt & pour soaps, and other recipes, it will produce a nice ‘earthy pinkish-red’ tone as well as provide your finished product with an excellent texture & skin-softening properties.
Pink clay gets its color from iron oxides, which can stain clothing. Use caution.
