French Green Clay
Naturally rich in minerals, elements and and skin rejuvenating oxides, French Green Clay also sometimes traded as Sea Clay.
French Green Clay is one of the most majestic, most effective, and most commonly used mineral skin clays found in high end cosmetic skincare.
The fine clay is silky soft to touch and readily absorbs water and other ingredients to create a paste.
Green Clay rich in minerals
French Green Clay (AKA Illite Clay or Sea Clay) contains a cornucopia of valuable elements, which include montmorillonite, illite and Kaolin.
In addtion there are several important mineral oxides, magnesium, calcium, potassium, dolomite, silica, manganese, phosporous, silicon, copper, and selenium.
Green clay owes its coloration to two very important factors.
1) The level of iron oxides
2) The level of decomposed plant matter.

The natural green tones found in luxurious green clay are from the very cycles of life the earth uses to regenerate itself.
Despite the name, not all French clay comes from France. It also comes from several other European countries as well as China.
Originally the French controlled the markets throughout the world, hence how French Green Clay got it’s name. Over time, however other countries have come to produce the same clay, and it has become a term that has stuck.
