Our Clays

Elemento Mineral is built on a foundation of 9 coloured clays. All the coloured clays are extracted from organic sources and their beautiful tones are 100% natural. In other words, there are no artificial colourants or added pigments, just variations of minerals and trace elements that nature offers us. So pure in fact, our clays are Ecocert Certifed Natural and Organic.

Clay is a natural cosmetic wonder, a gift from the land for our benefit, and has been used in beauty treatments since antiquity. It is extraordinary because of its geophysical properties and its encapsulated solar and magnetic energies. The elemental composition of clay acts to detox, revitalise, energise and regenerate – restoring balance, invigorating, and mending – returning your natural state of well-being.

Clay’s natural absorbing properties draw out harmful particles and toxins from the microscopic pores of the skin, gently scrubbing the skin, eliminating dirt, dead pores and old skin cells. Rich in minerals, clay stimulates and brightens up your epidermis by stimulating blood circulation.

Ecocert Certified Natural and Organic Clays

Our clay is sourced from a Certified organic and sustainable mine located in a remote region in southern Brazil. The region is renowned for its pure, superfine clays and many of the world’s elite cosmetics manufacturers use Kaolin clay from this region as the basis for their luxury cosmetic products.

Gamma Radiation Free

The elemental composition of raw mineral clays are rich and varied, and include a percentage of plant and organic matter which needs to be removed to produce the high calibre pure clay needed for facial masks and cosmetics. Our clay is decontaminated without using gamma rays, the traditional purification method and a process that alters the structure of clays. The technique used by Elemento Mineral is a patented process, accepted globally, that uses dry heat and ozone gas (originating from oxygen), and preserves all the intrinsic benefits of the Active Organic Minerals and doesn’t generate any poisonous waste or pollutants.

Clay’s cosmetic benefits stem from various Active mineral elements (ions and trace elements) whose delicate nature can be destroyed by the electromagnetic radiation produced by radioactive elements in gamma-rays, a type of ionizing radiation which can penetrate matter very deeply.

Our patented process eliminates bacteria and other microorganisms while retaining the Active mineral properties leaving our clays:

• Free of dioxins
• Free of radioactivity
• Free of pesticide residues

Clinical Trials Conducted

All 9 clays have undergone extensive clinical trials to ensure you can use them on your skin with confidence, no matter how sensitive. The following dermalogical and biological clinical trials were conducted:
• heavy metals
• pesticides
• pollutants
• diotoxine
• microbiological
•  mineralogical composition
• chemical composition
• primary dermal irritation
• accumulated dermal irritation
• dermal sensitivity
• cutometry tests
• sebumetry tests

Using Clay Powder

Our clays come packaged as a beautifully coloured, superfine powder. Preparing the powder for use can become a relaxation ritual which both calms the mind and eases muscular tension. We suggest you blend the clay with mineral water where possible and never use metal implements. Simply add clay powder to a dry dish or bowl, moisten with water and stir until a smooth, creamy paste. Spread generous coat over face or body (using hand or brush), allow to dry and then rinse off with water. The thicker the coat you apply, the more the clay benefits can work, and the longer it takes to dry.
