Kaolin and Glacial Clay Facial Treatments

Seaflora Skincare wants to see your skin SeaFlourish with an at home facial treatment! That is why we have created Sea Results Sample Routines for all skin types! All of our masks and exfoliators use Canadian Glacial Clay and Kaolin Clay.

Canadian Glacial Clay has been used for generations by First Nations for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. While Kaolin Clay’s use originates in China, it is perfect for softening, restoring and rejuvenating the skin. Read on to see which Seaflora Masque is right for you! Learn how Seaflora works their magic to bring your skin back to a perfect balance, 100% naturally.

Canadian Glacial Clay

The core structure of our glacial organic clay is chlorite-mica, enhanced by almost 60 rare earth minerals and marine ions, culminating in natural, restorative clay.

This clay is a product of erosion caused by the movement and melting of Canadian glaciers. It is one of the few clays that exists naturally in a mud-like state. Glacial Clay eventually deposits as a sediment in the ocean and becomes enriched with essential vitamins and rare minerals from the ocean water. This is one of the most pure, natural clays in terms of its concentration of anti-aging and restorative minerals.

Glacial clay’s net negative ion charge attracts most positively charged bacteria and toxins, drawing these impurities out from deep in the skin, detoxifying, rejuvenating and revitalizing the skin. It is reputed to stimulate blood circulation, soften the skin and balance the skin with rich sea minerals to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles and slow the aging process.

Another beneficial element of this clay is its amazing ability to absorb micro-sized clay particles. The osmotic power of the clay pulls moisture up from deep inner tissues to hydrate the surface of the skin, and cleanses the skin without dehydrating it. This clay is excellent for acne-prone skin, and reducing the look of large pores while removing and helping to heal any impurities.

Kaolin Clay

Kaolin Clay‘s use can be traced back to being used by the ancient Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians. It is a gentle, natural clay that reputes improving blood circulation, absorbing toxins and cleansing the pores in the skin. Making sure dead skin cells adhere to this nourishing mineral-rich substance, Kaolin Clay washes away impurities without removing the skins natural oils. This clay is a great choice for dry or sensitive skin types or to soften and illuminate rough, textured skin.
