Indian Healing Clay Ingredients
Yep, that’s it. Just a single ingredient: A clay (officially known as montmorillonite) that is dug straight out of Mother Earth. There are no fillers, colors, fragrances, or preservatives added. Just the thing for all you fans of natural products. But what does this stuff actually do?
Most commercial facial masks use clay because it creates a tightening sensation as it dries, giving you the sense that it’s cleaning your pores. This supposedly is why clays been used for centuries to help cure acne. Since clays are good at absorbing oils so if you have oily skin this kind of mask may help degrease you a bit. Unfortunately, acne is not caused by excess surface oils alone (bacteria is a contributing factor) so a clay mask by itself is unlikely to bust your black heads. Still the comedogenicity rating for bentonite is low which means it won’t make your zits any worse. Plus it’s pretty cheap. So, feel free to give it a try.
