Herbal Clay Mask
Clay has been used to detoxify and deep clean the skin for ages. Clays are excellent for absorbing excess oil and balancing combination skin. Because of these clarifying properties, clay masks can be somewhat drying so I've added coconut milk powder and silica-rich diatomaceous earth to our blend of French green clay and white kaolin clay. To this luxurious base I've added three blends of herbs with proven skin benefits. Rose and Hyssop: soothing and mildly astringent. Great for mature skin. Now with antioxidant-rich rosehip powder. Chamomile and Rosemary: calming and anti-inflammatory. Great for irritated skin. Charcoal and Neem: detoxifying and cooling. Great for acne-prone skin. Each tin contains 30 grams of product. To use, scoop a teaspoon-full into your palm and mix with water to form a thin paste. Gently apply to your face and leave on until somewhat dry then rinse off with cool water.

ADDENDUM I work hard to formulate and craft the finest products I can for you. This means ethically sourcing my ingredients, reducing my carbon footprint, and making sure my packaging is as recyclable as possible. I grow as many of the herbs that I craft with as I can, with the constant goal of 100% garden-grown. I source locally what I cannot yet produce myself. I am working to phase essential oils out of my products in favor of whole-plant infusions wherever possible. My preservative blend for my aqueous products is both good for your skin and good for the planet. No parabens, petrochemicals, or formaldehyde-releasers here! Please remember that all of my products are crafted by hand in small batches in my workroom. I follow standard sanitation procedures, but this is an environment that does contain gluten, nuts, a variety of plant/nut oils, and an abundance of both fresh and dried plant matter. Always patch test a new product, even if you are familiar with every ingredient. Allergies can appear overnight. Photography by Celeste Boykins Instagram: @icbophotography
