Our green clay soap is made by a French Soap company who have specialised in producing soap since 1688. They have expert knowledge of blending natural ingredients to produce soaps that are kind and gentle to the skin as well as enriching and feeding your skin.
One key benefit of green clay soap is that it is enriched with Shea butter which has many health and skin benefits. It acts as a wonderful moisturiser, has great anti aging properties and is beneficial for those with blemished/oily skin. Shea butter is from a tree called a Karite Tree, this bears fruits and the nuts inside are crushed, boiled and manipulated to extract a light coloured fat commonly known as Shea Butter. Shea butter contains oleic acid, stearic acid and linoleic acid which are absorbed into your skin very quickly:
Oleic acid is a well known anti-inflammatory.
Linoleic acid helps aid in the repair of the skin's top layer (epidermis) .
Shea butter is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F.
It is a rich source of vitamins and contains disease fighting antioxidants.
Green clay, also known as French Clay and Sea Clay, has been used for generations as a skin preparation and face mask. It naturally absorbs excess oil, gently removes bacterial and toxins on the surface of the skin, while gently exfoliating away dead skin cells and sebum. It is ideal for clearing blocked pores by bringing blemishes to the surface making them easy to remove. Green Clay is the most versatile, most effective, and most commonly used mineral skin clays found in the world, it contains many valuable elements. Green clay owes its coloration to two very important factors: iron oxide and plant matter. French Green Clay contains several elements which are responsible for working the outer epidermis in its own way and in dispensing their biological constituents as best as possible, for ultimate cleansing and purifying.
French clay soap is high in minerals such as magnesium, calcium, copper, selenium, potassium and manganese. It is used for cosmetic purposes and medical treatments as it stimulates the skins cell turnover. The clay works by absorbing impurities from skin cells which causes dead skin cells to slough off which in turn stimulates the epidermis. This stimulates the flow of blood to the skin making your skin feel younger, tight and giving a overall glowing feel to your face.
