Mineral Co mineral clay mask powders are a versatile and affordable way to improve the health and appearance of your skin. They are made from natural clay minerals that have been used for centuries for their cleansing, exfoliating, and healing properties.

Why use a powder rather than premade masks?

  • Customisable: You can mix the clay powder with different liquids, such as water, honey or yoghurt to create a mask that suits your specific skin type and needs. You can also add other ingredients, such herbs, or fruits, to enhance the effects of the mask.
  • Fresh: You can prepare the clay mask right before you use it, ensuring that the ingredients are fresh and potent. Pre-mixed masks may lose their effectiveness over time or contain preservatives that could irritate your skin.
  • Cost-effective: You can buy clay powder in bulk and use only the amount you need for each mask, saving money and reducing waste. Pre-mixed masks are often sold in single-use packets or jars that may be more expensive and generate more packaging.

Benefits of Using Mineral Clay Masks

  • Absorb excess oil and impurities: Clay masks can help remove dirt, bacteria, and sebum from your pores, preventing acne and clogged pores. They can also balance the oil production of your skin, making them less oily or dry.
  • Exfoliate and smooth: Clay masks can gently scrub away dead skin cells and smooth out rough patches, revealing a softer and brighter complexion.
  • Tighten and firm: Clay masks can help stimulate blood circulation and oxygen delivery to your skin cells, promoting collagen production and skin regeneration. They can also create a film that helps retain moisture and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.
  • Heal and soothe: Clay masks can help calm inflammation, irritation, and redness caused by various skin conditions, such as dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea. They can also help heal wounds, ulcers, and cuts by protecting them from infection and promoting tissue repair.

To use a mineral clay mask powder, you will need:

  • Clay powder
  • Liquid of your choice (water, honey, yogurt, etc.)
  • Small Mixing bowl
  • Spatula or brush
  • Washcloth
  • Warm water
  1. Mix the clay powder (about 1 tablespoon) and liquid (start with very small amount about ½ teaspoon) together in a mixing bowl until you get a smooth paste.
  2. Apply the mask evenly to your face, avoiding the eye area.
  3. Leave the mask on for about 10 to 15 minutes or until it dries completely.
  4. Rinse the mask off with warm water and pat your skin dry.
