GREEN CLAY FOR YOUR SKIN
Illite green clay is by far the most used in the world and has been since the dawn of time. Pliny the old one did not say "you have to take the one that has the color of the wheat in the grass"! An unstoppable remedy to pamper your skin and hair and say goodbye to imperfections, green clay is ultra absorbent and tackles excess sebum as well as impurities and toxins of all kinds. It is the most mineral-rich clay and trace elements.
While illite green clay provides its benefits to all skin types, it is mainly aimed at mixed to oily skins on which it will have a rebalancing and sanitizing effect. Applied as a mask on the face, it rebalances, absorbs and detoxifies skin with mild or mixed problems.
It adsorbs, solves blackheads and acne pimples, removes excess sebum with delicacy and gives your skin a second youth by tightening pores and unifying your complexion.
Opt for the green clay mask. It is your beauty ally par excellence, easy to achieve, it cleanses and revitalizes your skin deeply. Illite green clay comes in different forms at Argiletz to better meet your expectations.

Green clay is the indispensable ally of oily or blemished skin.

THE CLAYS OF COLOR WITH UNSUSPECTED VIRTUES
While green clay is by far the best known, clay can also take on other hues with each other's own properties. This natural material consists of silica, alumina salts, iron, magnesium and many other essential minerals. It is the content of each oxide-rich element that determines the hue that the clay takes.
RED CLAY AS A COMPLEXION ILLUMINATOR
Red clay is known for its richness in iron oxide and trace elements. It is ideal for sensitive skin, with stains, redness or dull skin tone, as it will have a unifying and illuminating effect of complexion. With red clay, good looking effect guaranteed!
WHITE CLAY: IDEAL FOR SENSITIVE AND MATURE SKIN
For sensitive and mature skin with a dry, devitalized or sluggish tendency, white clay - also known as kaolin - with its neutral pH is preferred. Its low mineralization makes it less absorbent than green clay and will have a delicate effect on your skin. Its high silica content (an excellent anti-wrinkle) makes it particularly effective on mature skins that it will gently remineralize.
PINK CLAY CARE FOR A GOOD LOOKING EFFECT
Subtle mixture of red clay and white clay, pink clay is aimed at all skin types and combines the benefits of the two types of clay that make up it. With its neutral Ph for the epidermis, it takes care of the most fragile and reactive skin. Widely used in cosmetics, it nourishes, detoxifies and eliminates dead cells while respecting the structural balance of the epidermis and maintains the natural hydrolipidic film. Enough to give a boost to your skin and pep's by giving it all the minerals it needs.
YELLOW CLAY WITH EXFOLIATING EFFECTS
Yellow clay has a composition and virtues quite similar to green clay. It is aimed at more fragile skin, with a mixed or oily tendency. It also has exfoliating and purifying properties that make it essential for skin in need of shine. Yellow clay is recommended for brittle and fragile hair. It gives them strength and shine.
GHASSOUL CLAY: AN ORIENTAL TREATMENT
Coming from the eastern tradition and more specifically from Morocco, ghassoul clay (also called rhassoul) is a very soft volcanic rock. It is traditionally part of the hammam care rituals - just like argan oil - and has been used for centuries by Maghreb people to cleanse and care for their skin and hair. Ghassoul clay respects the hydrolipidic film of the skin, making it particularly soft and non-irritating, even for ultra-sensitive skin. It eliminates impurities and dead cells while absorbing excess sebum. Used on hair, it acts as a 100% natural shampoo and restores flexibility and volume.
CLAY AS A FACIAL
Argiles, whatever their colour, always find a natural application to facials.
