by Nidhi Gupta 06 Jul 2023 0 Comments

Remember those golden days when playing with clay gave you utmost joy? Your skin also loves clay. If you are one who has oily skin, multiple tiny blackheads, breakouts, or a shiny T-zone, Kaolin Clay is a divine benediction for your skin.

What is Kaolin Clay?

Also known as White Clay, China Clay, or Chini Mitti; Kaolin Clay is primarily made up of the mineral  Kaolinite. This tender facial clay gently cleanses, exfoliates, and detoxifies your skin from outside to inside. With its mild antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and healing properties, Kaolin Clay provides multiple benefits to skin and hair.

Other names of China Clay

Kaolin Clay in Tamil- கயோலின் களிமண்

Benefits of Kaolin Clay

  • Kaolin Clay is an all-in-one power pack for all skin types including sensitive skin, acne-prone skin, dry skin, and oily skin. It absorbs extra sebum on the outer surface of the skin and controls excess oil production without stripping natural oils.
  • It works as a natural cleanser to wash away dirt, impurities, and toxins from the pores and evens out skin tone.
  • Due to its antibacterial and healing properties, it aids to cure acne, redness, and itchiness on the skin.
  • The exfoliating effect of the Kaolin Clay gently scraps even the minute particles of dust, bacteria, and pollutants which keeps your skin acne and blemish-free.
  • Kaolin Clay is not only a skin thing. It also withdraws toxins and impurities from your teeth and scalp.
  • Pure Kaolin Clay contains titanium dioxide, aluminosilicate, and silica with a neutral pH. The combined power of this natural chemical composition blocks the absorption of harmful UV rays, promotes collagen production, and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Multani Mitti
