This is a dark clay ideal for face masks and mud mask applications. Its color ranges from light gray/green to dark gray. Due to its high content of minerals, sea clay draws oils from the skin, and is rich in algaes, macro- and micro-minerals, as well as sodium and sulphur. Sea plants, seawater, sea salt and oceanic clay have long been popular physical-therapy ingredients in Europe. Recommended as medical therapeutic agents as early as 1578, seawater and sea derivatives were administered for rheumatism and general rehabilitation. If you will search online, you will come across a couple of companies which supply spas and salons with expensive body wrap products and you will see that sea clay is an important ingredient in body wraps to lose inches and cellulite. Sea clay is also recommended for use on horses to apply on minor cuts, scabs and so on. For horses it may be used after strenuous workouts (cold to cool and tighten legs and muscles, to pack hooves and cool them after work on hard ground) (warm to reduce stiffness and maintain mobility, to relax and soothe tired muscles). Please consult a veterinarian prior to treating any animals. Sea Clay: Origin - USA; CAS# - 1332-58-7; INCI - Kaolin, Aluminum Silicate; Mesh - 200

I use this in a facial bar that I formulated and it works wonders for acne prone skin. It is a wonderful clay and I love the color and texture it gives to my cold process soap.
Reviewer: Anna Tamaoka (Brookline, MA) 10.29.2012
This clay gave my cold process soap a wonderful, rich olive green color. I did find it a little drying even when mixed with a lot of olive oil, so I only use it for my face. I also made a mask out of it just by wetting it with some chamomile tea. I tried to use the clay to color half a batch of soap and swirl them together but it didn't work out too well; granted, it was my first time trying to swirl so I may have done it incorrectly, but the two colors just blended together into one.

Many different uses
I originally purchased this to use as an additive and colorant for soap but also used this to make a mask for myself and my daughter. I like to experiment with different clays and but this I will purchase again.

Very nice color.
I use this as CP soap, nice color and no odor. I also use it as a mask, it gets powdery when it gets dry. Feels very nice after using it.

Wonderful for clay masks!
I bought this to use in soap but my teenage daughter asked for a clay mask the other day so I tried it. She and my younger daughter have been in a show and have been wearing lots of stage makeup. I whipped up a batch using green tea for the liquid and a few drops of tea tree and lavender essential oils. Our skin felt so smooth and soft and invigorated afterward. I have made masks using other types of clay and this one was the best. Interestingly, it worked well for all of us despite the fact that we have different kinds of skin (middle aged and dry for me), oily for my teen daughter, and normal for the little one. I did not find it drying at all.
