The use of clay for soothing and healing the skin traces back throughout history as far back as ancient Rome, 60 BC to be exact. Clays shrink pores by unclogging them to prevent blemishes, dark spots, scars and skin aging. Blackheads, whiteheads and acne are caused by excess sebum, abnormal shedding of dead skin and bacteria, all of which lead to dark spots, scars and blocked follicles. This stress leads to premature skin aging.
So why do clays work so well? Clays act like magnets to toxins – toxins/bacteria have positive charges while clays have a strong negative electrical charge. When it comes in contact with a toxin, heavy metal, chemical, or other impurity, the clays will eat the toxin and in return, release minerals for the body to use.
