Kaolin Clay

What is Kaolin Clay?

Kaolin clay is a startling white clay because of its purity. It does not have any heavy minerals or toxins you may find with other clays. Kaolin's texture is talcum powder-soft and odorless.

Kaolin was first found in the 7th and 8th Centuries in China. It was named Kao-ling clay from the name of the hill where it was first mined. The clay was used for skincare, ingestion for ailments, and even to make beautiful porcelain dishware.

Kaolin Clay in Your Skincare Regime

Kaolin for oily skin: Kaolin clay will absorb excess oil from the surface, keeping the pores unclogged. This makes it an important addition to a masque.

Kaolin for Cleansing: Kaolin has a cleansing agent that removes dirt and impurities, making it a great cleanser product, as it is very gentle and won't leave the skin feeling stripped but nice and clean.

Kaolin for acne and exfoliation: As an exfoliator, it draws out the smallest bits of dirt and grime, pollutants, and bacteria, leaving the skin smooth and acne issues at bay.

Kaolin for Healing: Kaolin Clay has healing properties, calming insect bites, rashes, and inflammation. It helps to pull the redness out of the skin when irritated.

Kaolin for even skin tone: Kaolin evens out complexions when used consistently.

So how do you get the greatest benefit?

Kaolin is safe for all skin types, however, skin types require different frequencies of use or regimes. If you would like to know how best to use VinoSpa products for your skin type, contact me for a quick consultation. (link here)

As a 30 year esthetician, I always tell people, I understand that life is busy, and sometimes we don't follow a proper regime, but please, if you do just one thing for your skin, treat it to a masque. A masque can correct all those bad behaviors! For more on masquing, see my blog on Masquing.

Let Kaolin help bring out your inner radiance!
