This clay will also double up as a natural aid for stomach problems. Given its benefits, this is a good investment.
Sensitive: If your skin tends to get irritated from all products, opt for the French Green clay. Originating in Southern France, this clay is rich in kelp and algae, which explains its colour. It is very calming and soothing due to the presence of the marine herbs. It is very effective in removing toxins and healing the skin.  No matter what skin ailment you have, whether it is a sunburn, allergic reaction or a wound, this marine clay will help soothe your skin and calm the inflammation.

This clay is perfect for giving mature skin the boost of hydration and radiance it needs.
