What you need to know about cosmetic clay

Wat je moet weten over cosmetische klei

Clay or rather clays, are a natural source and contain numerous minerals. It is an age old ingredient from nature and does more than you think of your skin. Clay plays a significant role on earth and in human and animal life. In addition to industrial applications (especially the kaolin, the white clay) such as in ceramics, paper industry also has cosmetic applications for improving the skin.

Elements of clay

Chemically, clay belongs to the Kaolinites group or candies consisting of aluminum silicates containing metals and non-metals.

The most important elements are:
silicon, aluminum, titanium, iron, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium.
then a long range of other elements is present in the form of trace elements.

There are different types of (colors) clay such as white, red, pink, green, yellow clays. The color depends on the presence of iron and the chemical state. If the iron is present in a certain state that is mentioned bivalent, the clays are green, while if the iron is present in another state that is named trivalent, the clay red colors.

White clays such as certain kaolin do not contain iron, or if they contain it, it is in a low percentage and a shape that cannot color the clay. Iron with a green color is a younger, immature clay and in a certain sense more active iron than iron with a red color.

Clays have always supervised man in his development through different civilizations. Clay is primarily known for ceramic applications while clay has incredibly many applications with health promoting properties. As a cosmetic application, they come into effect by adding water just before use. The water turns on the clay particles to bind tallows and toxins, for example. Science is it Again that clay fungi and bacteria can kill . It is not easy to find good research about specific clays. In This research It has been shown that green clay has an anti-inflammatory effect.

Animals apparently also know what is good for them. For example, American researchers discovered that the Are, a family of parrots in Peru, visit Kleibergen. They take clay to heal the poisonous substances from seeds that they eat too.

From cosmetical point of view, clays are rare natural substances with emulsifying properties. At the same time, clay can absorb hydrophilic substances such as water or aqueous plant extracts, like oils and fats such as olive oil or butter. Normally mix oil and water not well together but with clay they can form an emulsion to even a creamy homogeneous soft substance. This emulsifying style of clay is used, for example, to prepare compresses that contain both water and oils.

The mothers of the clays are rocks. Under the influence of rain and other atmospheric influences such as temperature changes, the rocks transform and various field pods are formed. Strictly speaking, clay is a feldspar.
