A purifying yet gentle mask that detoxes pores while remineralizing your skin. Our Terra Firma Clay Mask includes primarily Australian Pink and French Pink clays with White Kaolin and Bentonite clay plus freshly ground wild botanicals and pure aloe vera.
- Cleanses deep inside the pores.
- Balances oil production.
- Softens skin by locking in moisture.
- Removes dead skin cells to reveal a healthier, brighter complexion.
- Tones and tightens skin with long-term use.
- Regenerates tissues and repairs damage via powerful antioxidants, flavonoids, vitamins and minerals.
- Infuses skin with a wide variety of minerals including silica, selenium, zinc, illite, calcite, magnesium and montmorillonite.
Plus it's multi-tasking. Other than a mask, use it as an exfoliant or cleanser, or even in a warm bath!
For congested skin, we recommend using the mask 2x per week and then reducing use as needed.
Here are the ingredients and how they work:
Australian pink clay's minerals include: Silica (anti-inflammatory and helps lock in moisture), Magnesium (helps skin retain its natural fatty acids), Selenium (an antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals) and trace amounts of skin-healing Zinc. Gentle and great for sensitive skin. Cleans out pores without stripping skin. Provides a natural boost of minerals which help replenish skin cells and balance skin tone.
French pink (rose kaolin) clay contains many of the same capabilities as above, yet with its own unique composition of minerals: Illite (decongests pores, especially on acne-prone skin, and boosts blood circulation to make skin look more toned), Montmorillonite (an absorbent, gently sops up excess oil) and Calcite (a crystal that’s known for purifying energy and stimulating tissue repair).
White kaolin clay is the gentlest of all clays. It has a neutral pH and an incredible mineral composition including a high dose of silica. Absorbs excess oil and extracts stale sebum and dirt in the pores. Like all clays, it can repair skin irritation. Over time, skin appears more toned and tightened.
Bentonite clay is the remnant of volcanoes. It contains montmorillonite and carries a negative charge that attracts substances with positive charge – like toxins, bacteria, fungi, etc. Flushes out toxins and removes dirt. Softens skin. Absorbs unwanted, excess moisture. Heals and regenerates tissues. Tones and tightens the skin.
Calendula contains high levels of flavonoids, including lutein and beta carotene, which are antioxidants that help protect against infection and cell damage caused by free radicals. It is an ancient healer of wounds. Used to tighten skin, increase hydration in cells, promote healing, reduce inflammation, protect against UV rays, stimulate collagen production and cell regeneration, soothe dermatitis and rashes.
Roses are high in vitamins like C and E. They reduce redness, balance oil production, stimulate collagen production, relieve inflammation and all kinds of other skin-healing action. Also moisturizing and brightening for tired, dull complexions. Plus they're incredibly calming for the whole body and mind.
Chamomile has powerful antiseptic and anti-inflammatory abilities that help to decongest clogged pores and calm all sorts of inflammation. Rich in flavonoids and antioxidants, it can effectively protect skin against free radicals and effectively treat skin issues from dryness to dermatitis.
Aloe vera powder is a brilliant moisturizing and healing agent that is now fully recognized in medical and pharmaceutical industries. Its polysaccharides (sugars) are hygroscopic (water-loving) and form a strong meshed structure that can penetrate and moisturize skin deeply. Also contains antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins A, E and C, and it is highly anti-inflammatory. Can help treat burns, acne, dry skin and many other irritations.
To use the mask – Mix 1 tsp dry clay powder with 1 tsp liquid to form a paste. Allow it to almost dry – never let a clay mask fully dry on your skin – before rinsing. Our favorite liquid to use is apple cider vinegar or one of our toners, as their natural acidity helps balance the alkaline nature of clay. Raw honey is also a wonderful addition. You could even use plain ole water. Follow with a toner to close pores and then a moisturizing oil. Your skin will appreciate a lot of extra hydration after a mask.
Terra Firma can also be used as an exfoliant or cleanser when mixed with your favorite cosmetic oil. Try mixing 1 tsp dry clay powder with 1 tsp Rose Gold Elixir, Seaberry Elixir or Grooming Oil. Gently massage the paste in circular motions onto skin. No need to use pressure. The clay will do all of the work for you. Then rinse and enjoy your fresh, glowing skin. Follow with toner to close pores and extra moisturizer.
