Rich in kaolinite, illite, montmorillonite and calcite, French Red Clay is best suited for normal to oily skin types.
Benefits: French Red Clay cleanses and sloughs off dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, leaving it refreshed and toned with a rejuvenated look. It is most widely used in cosmetic manufacturing.
