White kaolin clay is rich in silicon and aluminum silicate and it is known to be the mildest of all clays.
It provides a silky slip, a property that makes it ideal for sensitive skin and this mainly why it is often used in soaps and shave-creams.
It acts as a mild exfoliant when used in a cleanser or scrub. This exfoliation action helps in renewing, and remineralizing the epidermis while cleansing the skin. It is versatile clay that can be used in combination with almost any wetting agent including purified water, hydrosols or aloe vera. It helps stimulate circulation while purifying the skin and closing dilated pores. White Kaolin clay does not draw oils from skin hence can be used on dry skin types too.
