This grey-green clay is ideal for facial masks and body mud masks.  It originated as mud laid down under the sea millions of years ago, is washed, and dried ready for use.  This clay acts as a mild exfoliant and is thought to have many properties around detox and cellulite reduction.  Sea Clay has a high mineral content.

Sea Clay works wonderfully as a mask, body wrap, hair wrap and to color soap. It can be used by itself or in conjunction with other clays.  Sea clay is an "hydrous clay", which means that it contains roughly 14% water of hydration that is chemically bound within its crystalline structure.

This clay is cosmetic grade (FDA approved) for use on the skin, it is washed and cleaned without the use of chemicals.
