What’s better than a clay mask? A detoxifying clay mask. Especially if it is made up of the much acclaimed – the clay of Ghana.
Ghana is a popular source for Bentonite clay, which is used is many skincare products for its detoxifying properties. Besides topical application, in Ghana this clay is consumed internally as well.
The product in spotlight here is a blend of bentonite clay and the clay extracted from termite and ant mounds of Ghana. The brand behind this remarkable product is “Skin Gourmet”, based in Ghana. All the products under this brand are handmade in small batches to ensure quality. The products are 100% natural – raw – sans any emulsifiers. As the name suggests, the brand philosophy is – “What you put in your body will show up on your skin and what you put on your skin will end up in your body”.
I have used Skin Gourmet Clay mask for roughly a month now. The mask comes in a solid glass jar packaging with minimalist labeling. The clay comes in soft powdery form and is featherweight. I mix it with rose water and gently apply is over my face and neck. The clay doesn’t have any odour, which indeed makes it suitable for sensitive skin. After application, the clay dries in 15-20 mins, just like your regular fuller’s earth.
The clay cleans very thoroughly, leaving the skin breathing fresh. It is very effective in pulling out even tiniest layer of grit and grime in the pores. It has reduced redness on my face and calmed down the small acne that were popping up. I also feel my skin feeling tighter and firm after 2 weeks of usage. This product, however, is a natural and clean product unlike the cosmetic products, you will have to use it for 2-3 weeks to see the amazing results. I use it as a cleanser and mask. Once the mask dries, use only little water to melt it and then scrub the face gently.
