White Clay is a gentle, chemical-free cleanser that is safe for use on all types of skin. It is particularly appropriate for people with dry or sensitive skin who find ordinary soaps and gels irritating. It helps to remove impurities from the surface of the skin and has a mildly stimulating effect on circulation. Its gentle action means it does not dry the skin and can safely be used several times a day if necessary.
