‘Purifying Australian Green Clay Mask’ is a deeply purifying, soothing and nourishing face mask made with a unique blend of super fine Australian Olive green clay, Activated charcoal, Oat meal and potent herbal extracts of Gingko Biloba, Aloe vera, Green Tea, and White Willow Bark.
Australian Olive Green Clay is one of the strongest clays for cleansing and detoxification and is especially beneficial for acne-prone and oily skin as the minerals in the clay help to balance the skin’s natural sebum production and draw out impurities.
Activated charcoal has got a strong purifying effect, drawing out bacteria, toxins and dirt from the pores.
Pure extracts of Gingko biloba and Green Tea are powerful antioxidants promoting healthy skin structure and encouraging cellular regeneration.
The anti-inflammatory and anti-redness properties of both Green Tea and White Willow Bark help to calm and soothe irritated and congested skin.
The natural content of salicylic acid in White Willow Bark serves as a peeling agent helping to remove old and dead skin cells making way for new and fresh skin cells while Aloe vera is healing and hydrating.
Finely ground Oat meal adds gentle exfoliating benefits to the blend, helping to remove dead skin cells, calm inflammation and stimulate circulation.
‘Purifying Australian Green Clay Mask’ is especially recommended for congested and oily skin types but is also very beneficial to normal skin types needing a boost and deep cleanse with the added benefit of a natural gentle peeling effect.

Clay masks are great for a bit of indulging me-time.
Allow yourself 10-15 mins to relax, focus on your well-being and pamper yourself.
To make the clay mask:
1: Using non-metal utensils mix 1 heaped tsp of clay with 1 - 1½ tsp water in a glass, ceramic, wooden or plastic bowl.
2: Slowly add the water, being careful not to add too much at the time.
The mixture should resemble a thick smoothie-like paste. If the mixture is too liquid and runny then add a bit more clay.
You can store leftovers in the fridge.
3: Apply the mask generously to your face and neck (avoiding the delicate eye area) using a make-up brush or just your finger tips if you prefer.
Now relax for 5-15 mins and let the mask do its job.
Have a cup of tea, meditate, breathe, think positive thoughts about yourself.
4: Rinse off the mask before it dries completely with warm water. Gently massage your skin as you rinse it off to achieve exfoliating effect.
5: Apply your favourite moisturiser or facial oil.
TIPS: To avoid the mask drying too fast or if your skin is very dry add a few drops of oil to the mixture (for example almond oil, jojoba oil, argan oil or olive oil).
Instead of water use rose water or other flower water.
