INCI: Kaolin

Kaolin clay (AKA white clay, kaolin white, China clay) is a non toxic mineral ingredient that can be used in a number of DIY cosmetic recipes, from clay masks to soaps to hair care products. It is famous for its oil absorbing properties that help reduce shine and hide imperfections.

Why we love kaolin clay: clays are simply fabulous ingredients to have on hand - whip up a 'selfcare Sunday' facial mask by blending clay with honey and hydrosol, or add it to your soaps for the creamiest bar. Kaolin clay is extremely versatile and perfect for all skin types.

EN staff tip: combine clay with a spoon of honey for a brightening, healing and moisturising facial mask.

Sizes: 100g, 250g, 500g, 1kg or 5kg.

Kaolin and Chamomile Mask

chamomile is particularly soothing for hot, dry or irritated skin. It has a delicate lavender-ish scent and is cooling and calming. You can add in extras such as aloe vera, bulbinella or marshmallow root for additional soothing and healing properties.

2 T kaolin clay

3 T water or herbal infusion (you can make chamomile tea and use that)

2-3 drops chamomile essential oil

Optional: 1 teaspoon aloe vera powder / 1 teaspoon jojoba oil / 1 teaspoon marshmallow root powder / 1 teaspoon bulbinella extract

Thoroughly mix everything together, apply to clean skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes then rinse off with warm water and follow up with a moisturiser if necessary. You can find more fantastic mineral clay mask recipes on our blog.
