Colors of clay properties and effects
Being known as that clay is an earthy sedimentary rock made up of hydrated aluminium silicate, resulting from “the feldspar” decomposition (mineral species). Its therapeutic properties and its colour are function of many minerals (in particular silica, aluminium, magnesium, calcium, iron, cogitate, sodium, potassium, copper, zinc, selenium, cobalt, manganese…) which contains in variable proportions. Thus, clay can be green, white, red, yellow, pink, blue…

In capillary mask it nourishes and revitalizes the dry and delicate hair… very soft white clay can be used on all the skins even very sensitive. It is also used as talc for babies. Rich in Silica in particular, it is re-mineralizing and supports the elimination of toxins.
is especially intended for the fatty skins. It is able to absorb excesses of sebum and to control its production as well on the skin as on the scalp. A mask on an acne skin will have a draining action. Oily skin often appears shiny and somehow not clean, and the pores often seem too large. The excessive production of sebum (i.e. oil) coupled with perspiration can create the ideal environment for bacteria. Once in the pores, the bacteria can cause pimples, spots, blackheads, acne and “bad skin” in general.
The deeper cause of this skin problem is sometimes hormonal (puberty, for example), a poor diet containing excess fat, excessive alcohol consumption or stress. Although not so well known, digestive problems are often found to be the cause of this skin problem as poor digestion can alter the fat metabolism of the skin.
- deeply cleanses the skin
- purifies and detoxifies the skin
- normalises lipid metabolism (i.e. the production of oil)
- soothes the skin and encourages normal balance

Causes of Gastritis and Peptic Ulcers :
An inconsistent diet and poor nutrition, a weak immune system (for example from smoking or alcoholism), the long-term use of certain medications (e.g. some pain medications or anti-inflammatories) as well as lasting and unresolved stress can all lead to dysfunctional function of the stomach. When this happens, the stomach wall can be attacked by the stomach acid and this can lead to the development of an inflammation, also known as gastritis. If this inflammation goes untreated, it can lead to a local defect in the lining of the stomach (i.e. a peptic ulcer). Bacteria can play a large role in the development of both gastritis and peptic ulcers. It has been found that the bacteria “ Helicobacter pylori “ is responsible for more than 75% of cases of gastritis and peptic ulcers. Then clay protects the gastro-intestinal mucous membrane. It forms a true gastric bandage which by its silica content empower absorptive effect making possible to limit acidity.
