The Benefits of Glacial Clay in Skincare
Canada has a wealth of amazing skincare ingredients. Consider our glaciers. Not only does it have significant anti-aging properties, it is also full of over 60 natural minerals.
Over time, erosion and glacial run off have carried vast deposits of precious minerals down-river to settle in the estuaries of British Columbia. Throughout the journey the minerals are energized through the process of hydrolysis which creates a negative electrical charge. It is this negative charge along with the essential nutrients that gives this particular clay its powerful natural healing properties.
Glacial Clay’s Rare Composition
The core structure of our glacial organic clay is chlorite-mica, enhanced by almost 60 rare earth minerals and marine ions, culminating in natural, restorative clay.
Glacial Clay’s Benefit For Your Skin
With aging comes poor circulation, internal inflammation, and dehydration. Exposure to harsh environmental pollutants can lead to a build-up of toxins which eventually show in the skin. According the research of BC glacial clay by Dr. Ernst A. Hauser, glacial clay’s high absorption makes it ideal for drawing out impurities and toxins from the skin.
The micro size of this clay's particles and its amazing absorptive ability are especially beneficial. The osmotic power of the clay pulls moisture up from deep inner tissues to hydrate the surface of the skin and also cleans the skin without dehydrating it, as other cleansing agents may do.
