How Does Kaolin Clay Improve Skin?
December 1st, 2011
Kaolin clay is one of the finest most gentle clay varieties. Its name is derived from the Chinese province “Kaoling,” China thought to be the original source of this lush clay. This is debatable since it has been used by Pueblo tribes in the Southwest United States since Prehistoric times.
Whatever the true origin, this silica-based clay, has been used effectively to absorb oils and remove toxins without over-drying your skin, leaving it naturally polished and healthy. It nourishes the skin with its many trace minerals as it reduces fine lines and wrinkles with each use. Depending on the variety, Kaolin can be especially beneficial for sensitive skin as it gently exfoliates, eliminating dead epidermal layers, with no known allergic reactions.
For the best skin care experience you can find handmade Kaolin soaps combined with cocoa butter for ultra-moisturizing. There are innumerable products on the market containing this versatile clay for its ease of use and the clear results for restoring skin’s health. The eye-pleasing colors of pink, white, red and yellow can be found in facial creams, exfoliants, powders and even shaving creams for optimal skin health.
Each vivid color of Kaolin has specific benefits for your journey toward improved skin. The color options provide the ultimate natural skin care for the range of skin types, whether your face is dry, oily or in between. This is good news with the change of seasons: you can change your skincare regimen and still use Kaolin year round.
If you have oily skin this Kaolin is perfect for you. This vibrant colored clay draws impurities from the skin penetrating deep into the epidermal layer to remove excess sebum (oil). It is recommended that this clay is used no more than once a week because of the intensity of it effectiveness. The detoxifying properties of red Kaolin make it the best choice for acne prone skin.
This is the best clay you can use to mildly exfoliate sensitive skin. When applying this soothing slip as a natural facial mask, toxins are gently drawn from the skin while enhancing elasticity in otherwise dry skin. The lines etched in skin visibly diminish with regular use of this delicate clay.

Similar to pink Kaolin, yellow is also good for all skin types as a gentle cleanser that exfoliates and tones skin as it purges toxins through the pores. The absorption is stronger than white clay but not as intense as red Kaolin, so it naturally soaks up undesirable oils as it revives the youth of your skin.
