The clay is best suited for those with normal to oily skin.

The red clay cleanses the skin from the layers of dead cells as it accelerates the regeneration process. French Red Clay has been proven to improve blood circulation and make the appearance of the skin look radiant, and and feel hydrated,whilst also reducing the appearance of wrinkles and broken capillaries.
How to Use The Black Soap Company’s French Red Clay as a Face Mask
French Red Clay is best used a day or more after using French Green Clay to tone the skin. It is recommended that you do not exceed using French Red Clay as a facial mask more than once a week.
- Scoop a small amount of French Red Clay into a ceramic or glass bowl.
- Use a teaspoon to add a very small amount of mineral or spring water into the bowl and use the wooden spatula provided to mix the clay into a smooth paste.
- Using the wooden spatula provided, apply a thin layer of the clay paste to your entire face and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes or until the clay dries. However, do not allow it to dry out too much.
- Rinse the mask off with warm water and then apply a thin layer of the pure cocoa butter provided to moisturise and fade blemishes. Your skin will feel fresh, revitalized, and clean and will generally look younger due to the clay’s lifting effect.
Always use wooden or plastic utensils when mixing and applying the clay as metal utensils may react negatively with the product and do not store or reuse any left over mixture.
