Green Clay (Montmorillonite), sometimes called Sea Clay, is a highly adsorbent clay that cleanses the skin. It's especially beneficial for those with oily skin and wonderful in use as a clay poultice, mud pack, facial mask and even in some lotion and cleanser recipes. It gently exfoliates and cleanses resulting in younger looking skin. Clays used in water based products are best preserved with broad spectrum preservatives such as Essential's Preservative Blend.
