Add to Personalized Shopping List

One of the rarest and purest clays in the world, Glacial Clay is gaining widespread recognition for its efficacy within beauty, cosmetic and personal care applications.

Our Glacial Clay is a 100% natural cosmetic clay sourced from a deposit that has recently been discovered in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Comprised of nontronite, illite and kaolin clays, Glacial Clay was gradually formed over the span of millions of years from the continuous striking of ancient glacial ice with volcanic ash. Green nontronite is a rare, mineral-rich clay that belongs to the smectite group of clay minerals.

Our Glacial Clay is carefully sourced and packaged to maintain the purity and freshness of this highly beneficial clay. The clay is not irradiated.

Uses:

Glacial Clay is a highly versatile clay that is suitable for all skin types including sensitive and maturing skin. Glacial Clay possesses a very fine particle size that makes it remarkably effective at absorbing dirt and other impurities while providing gentle exfoliation of dead skin cells. It is a pure clay that is abundant in minerals that are beneficial for the skin. Glacial Clay rejuvenates dull skin, improves its appearance, helps to balance skin tone and leaves the skin feeling softer yet firmer.

Within hair care applications, Glacial Clay is highly beneficial in supporting healthy hair and scalp. It also helps to strengthen the condition of hair follicles and roots.

Customer Testimonial

"I use (and love, love, love!) your Pearlesecent Micas which get me compliments all the time, from coworkers to makeup artists at swanky cosmetic counters. It's cool because people are always asking me where I bought my eyeshadow and it's satisfying to say, "I didn't buy it-- I made it!" As someone with a darker-than-medium skin tone, it's great to be able to blend my own colours that actually show up on me, e.g., 1 part Golden Glow to 1 part Matte Orange = "Yummy Peach"."
