Benefits of clay
Clay, a natural and beneficial land, is a generous material used since the dawn of time for its benefits on the body and mind. A true gesture of love, this is how Argiletz has been imagining his clay care since 1953.
Clay comes to life in surprising textures and gives the best in a palette of soft and powerful colors. While green clay is by far the most widely used in the world, coloured clays each have its own properties.

Clay also has many benefits for the body, which it relieves and soothes. In cataplasm or plaster, clay does good: it contributes to the muscular well-being and comfort of the joints, it helps with cellular regeneration, cleanses and revitalizes. Thanks to its virtues, it also helps to maintain and complement the effects of a spa treatment when it integrates into daily care.
Did you know that? Clay can also be added to bath water. It thus acts on both the body and the mind. It envelops the skin with a gentle nourishing veil and offers a pure moment of relaxation.
Clay in all its forms
Clay is a rich and authentic material, from our Mother Earth, which is born in a raw and authentic form. Once extracted from our French quarries, we dry it in the sun and store it and then grind it so that you can appreciate all its qualities.
Once ground, the powdered clay can take different granulometry.
From crushed clay to ultra-ventilated powder clay, each grain size (or granulometry) is specially designed for specific use of clay. Whether you want to enjoy its benefits via a plaster or make a face mask, you will need to choose a suitable granulometry.
Ultra-ventilated clay powder and surfine clay are perfect for use in face masks or hair. They can also be added to the bath water to benefit the whole body. Their grain is so fine that they melt in the blink of an eye to form a paste as light as silky.
Crushed, granulated or finely ground clay is ideal for the preparation of plasters and cataplasms, which require a significant amount of dough depending on the area to be treated. They are available in larger sizes (1kg or 3kg) and require a longer preparation time (between 2 hours and a few minutes).
