Clay is a rock or soil material made up of aluminum and iron silicates, magnesium, calcium, copper, sodium, potassium, manganese, and crystallized into very fine particles.
Bactericidal, antiseptic, and balancing, clay acts gently and encourages cells turnover. It has a healing and softening effect on the skin and hair shafts, which it coats. Porous and absorbent, and also full of beneficial minerals, clays help to draw oil and impurities out.
ABOUT DEAD SEA CLAY
Dead Sea Clay, also known as Sea Clay, is a product that originates from the Dead Sea, a salt water lake in the Middle East, located between Israel and Jordan. The geographical features of the Dead Sea — including the fact that the lake is at the lowest sea level of any body of water on earth and surrounded by mountains — makes the surrounding silt and mud rich with a unique combination of minerals like magnesium, sodium, and potassium.
Dead sea clay helps remove toxins from the skin, provides gentle exfoliation, and helps remove dead skin cells.
- Detoxifies and Purifies
When it comes to detoxifying and deep cleansing your facial pores, there is no better solution than a Seaweed Stem Cell Mud Mask by ECOKISS. Dead Sea Mud penetrates deep into your pores and draws toxins and excess oil out of your skin without stripping your skin of its natural moisture, making it the ideal choice for people with combination skin or for use during the winter months when your skin needs more natural moisture to combat the drying effects of the cold. Dead Sea Mud Masks are perfect for summertime too. Your skin tends to produce more oil during the summer months than during the winter months, and you’re probably more likely to sweat during hot summer days. Regular applications of Dead Sea mud masks can help keep your pores from becoming clogged with sweat or excess oil and possibly stave off an acne breakout Its gentle pulling action helps gently exfoliate the skin, which unclogs the dirt and oil in your pores that can cause breakouts.
- Shrinks Pores
- Anti-Aging Properties
The key anti-aging benefit to look for in any face mask is its mineral content. Minerals, like vitamins, are essential for your skin’s metabolism. Without proper metabolism, your skin’s cell turnover rate will go down, resulting in a dull appearance. Mature skin often must rely on an external source to provide it with sufficient minerals to restore a normal cell turnover rate. Dead Sea mud contains high concentration of silica, calcium, magnesium, sodium, sulphur, bromide, iodine, iron, potassium and zinc. It’s also high in minerals, such as sodium, chloride, magnesium, potassium, iron, and calcium.
Clay masks and baths are universal remedies, which nowadays enable us to offset our deficiencies in certain minerals through absorption. Our increasingly urban lifestyles have separated us from the earth. For thousands years, men used to coat themselves in mud for protection, and to paint themselves with clay-based ochre paint for show. Thanks to the absorption of minerals by the skin, they thus imbibed beneficial minerals which the body needs in order to function.
