French (European) Green Powder Clay
Other Names - Green Clay, European Green Clay, Green Illite, Montmorillonite Clay
Origin - Italy
As the name implies, French green clay comes from ancient bedrock deposits in France. However, this clay is also mined from other sites in Europe such as Italy, as well as deposits within the northwestern U.S. Wyoming, Montana, and even as far away as China. These varieties are all marketed under the moniker “French Green Clay.”
Like other clays, French green clay contains iron oxides, but its characteristic green color comes from the presence of blue-green algae and chlorophyll left by decomposed plant life.
French green clay is valued for cosmetic use because of its exceptional absorbent properties and its ability to draw out impurities from the skin. The detoxifying quality of this material is best illustrated by its use in 1986 by the former Soviet Union, who used a massive quantity of French green clay to cover the failed nuclear reactor site at Chernobyl.
Our French Green clay has enormous absorbent powers due to the constitution of its micro molecules. It literally “drinks” oils, toxic substances, and impurities from your skin. Its toning action stimulates the skin. French Green clay is great for helping to clear occasional skin blemishes. Use it daily on trouble spots, or weekly as part of a complete facial treatment.
