Brazilian clay powder is an excellent cleanser for normal, sensitive, oily and dry skin. A type of kaolin clay, Brazilian clays come in a variety of colors based on the primary elements in them. Each color has slightly different benefits for each skin type. Kaolin clay absorbs less water and is less drying to skin. My favorites are green, yellow, pink and black. Powdered clays can be used for numerous DIY beauty recipes. I mix a small amount with the Botanical Cleanser to make a mask and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Washing it off creates a mild exfoliation. Over time, regular use of clay masks can help tone and tighten skin. The Botanical Cleanser is free of fragrance & parabens and also good for all skin types.
