French Yellow Clay is made up of fine mineral particles and iron oxides which determine its color. It contains iron, but no aluminum. It is a very mild clay that can be used on dry or sensitive skin.

Appearance: Fine pale yellow colored powder.

Benefits: French Yellow Clay is considered to be a powerful cleanser which draws out impurities from the skin while the essential minerals within the clay are released. It sloughs off dead skin cells from the surface of the skin, and tightens & tones the skin, leaving it feeling smooth, fresh, and radiant.

Application: French Yellow Clay can be used in body wraps, soap making, face masks, body and hair packs, face or body scrubs, shampoos, poultices, cosmetics and facial powders.

Directions for Use: 5-100% in skin-care products, 1 T. / 15ml per lb. / 500g of soap.

Caution: Caution should be exercised as clays may stain fabric.

Revitalizing Face Mask Recipe:
Combine 1 oz of clay to 3 tbsp of water; add 1 tsp of jojoba oil and 2 drops each of orange and tangerine essential oils to form a paste. Apply to the skin and leave for about 10 minutes and wash off with warm water. Floral water or aloe vera gel juice can be substituted for water.

Deodorizing Foot Treatment Recipe:
Add a half-cup of powdered clay and mix with 1/2-cup of water and 2–3 drops of tea tree essential oil. Apply the mixture to the feet, cover with plastic wrap and rinse off after 15 min with cool water.

i ordered this clay maybe a week of two ago, and have been using it in my pumpkin and papaya dry clay mask. And this is great thus far. It is fine compared to the other clays that i got from here and applies smoothly to the skin. I am not sure if it is the pumpkin, but the texture reminds me a bit of when you add a little bit of xanthan to water, the really slightly smooth feel you get that applies very smoothly to the skin. I am very happy with my purchase and would be coming back for more. Great job NDA

This is a really nice clay for CP soap. It blends well and adds a nice yellowish hue. It doesn't take much and its great for all skin types!

So far I have used this as a mask only and I love it, my face seems to be more hydrated and clear! The consistency is smooth and silky and mixes up easily, I have used, honey & milk, hydrosols with a couple of drops of essential oil and plain water and all have worked out wonderfully. The color when mixed is a deep brownish yellow. Easy to put on, easy to take off and doesn't stain my skin.

Clay shipped in a a sturdy, screw-top, white plastic jar. It is finely powdered and colored a tan yellow. Mixed with water, it looks a bit like a smooth brown mustard. It took up water quickly and evenly. One of the least gritty clays I've used. (The French clays generally seem smoothest.) A refreshing face mask that didn't leave my skin feeling dry or tight after rinsing. Also used in CP salt soap where it provided a nice slip and a hint of color.

I'm new to the uses of clays. I made a face cream added a small amount of the Illite clay to the formula. Incredible results!! I'm amazed at the synergistic effect when used in combination with carrier oils. Leaves skin silky smooth.

I use yellow clay in soaps that I make and I get so many great responses from customers that use it. They love the way their skin feels and looks. Of all the clays I use, this one is #1.

This is great product, I absolutely love using it in face masks because it works miracles with blackheads. The only thing that I do not enjoy about this product it that I find that it tints my skin a musterdy/ yellow color and takes a little work to get it off.
