Kaolin Clay and its benefits

Another ingredient that we at Standley Hand Crafted love is kaolin clay. Kaolin is another ingredient that you will find in our face mask.
Kaolonite or "china clay" is a naturally occurring soft clay used in many cosmetics for centuries. Kaolin clay is great for exfoliating and cleaning dead skin. Kaolin is great for adding thickness to face masks which is ideal for holding other ingredients. It is great for penetrating and opening pores which makes it a great carrier for other treatments such as activated charcoal.


Kaolin is very absorbent which is great for collecting excess oil and moisture in the skin. While kaolin may not be perfect for people with dry skin, it is great for people with sensitive skin because of how soft is on the skin.

Kaolin is one of the ingredients in our face mask.

The benefits of activated charcoal

Activated charcoal is a natural treatment that can be used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body and then flushes them out so that the body does not reabsorb them.
While we use activated charcoal for our skin care products, it can actually be used for numerous things such as an effective treatment for poisoning. It is also used for bloating, and gas, cholesterol and digestive problems.
We use activated charcoal in our line of face masks which is used to bind with environmental toxins and dirt that cause acne. Charcoal begins to bind and remove toxins as you apply it to your.

You can find our face mask as well as our sugar scrub on our online store.
