for different uses
Argiletz's illite green clay is naturally dried in the sun: The gentle heat of the sun concentrates its assets and our clay is thus more efficient and beneficial. This natural drying method preserves its molecular structure, to make you benefit from all its active minerals and trace elements.
Drying clay in a natural way thanks to the sun also allows us to respect our nourishing land. Indeed, thanks to this eco-friendly drying method we do not emit any CO2 emissions when drying the clay!
Did you know that? Most clays are dried in ovens. This drying method is certainly very practical and fast, but it greatly impoverishes the qualities of the clay and is very energy-intensive. At Argiletz, we have made the choice since 1953 to respect and fully value this land of health and beauty, and also our beautiful planet!
