Southern Alps Glacial Clay Face Mask
One of the rarest and purest clays in the world, our Glacial Clay is sourced from a deposit that has recently been discovered in the Southern Alps of New Zealand.
Containing more than 60 minerals and rare earth elements, Glacial Clay was gradually formed over the span of millions of years from the continuous striking of ancient glacial ice with volcanic ash.
Particles in glacial clay is negatively charged while our skin impurities are positively charged. When activated, these negative ions in the clay attract and remove the skin impurities.
As a result, skin is detoxed without stripping it of natural oils and moisture. Skin is left glowy, soft and hydrated.

Why dry clay mask? 1. Pre-mixed clay mask with aqua (water) require heavy preservatives to prevent bacteria and fungi growth. Dry clay masks ensures our masks are free from preservatives. 2. When a pre-mixed mask is stored in a jar, the clay will lose it effectiveness over time. Dry mask ingredients remain just as effective from the first time you use the product to the last time you use the product in the jar. 3. You can customise your mask according by adding fun ingredients such as honey, yogurt, hydrosols, even your favourite essential oil!
