The notion of rubbing your face with mud to get clean might seem like a funny one, but clay cleansers are no joke. While it may seem counterintuitive, clay is a super star ingredient in deeply purifying the pores without stripping skin or over-drying.
Clay is a detoxifier and acts like a magnet for ridding the skin of debris, toxins and impurities. It helps to control oil and cleanse pores without taking away any of the necessities healthy skin needs to thrive.
What is a clay cleanser?
Clay facial cleansers are cleansers designed to remove only dirt and impurities from pores while keeping skin balanced. Klar uses the purifying properties of clay minerals to gently and effectively lift and remove impurities without depleting the skin of essential nutrients. We formulated it with lusciously nourishing Scandinavian botanicals, such as Horsetail Extract, Eucalyptus Oil, Pink Grapefruit Oil and Cloudberry for their gentle soothing properties as well as antibacterial support.
What’s the best clay to use?
There are many different types of clay—each serving their own targeted benefits for varying concerns. We use Kaolin Clay in Klar since it is the gentlest and therefore suitable for even the most sensitive skin. While it absorbs sweat and excess oil and removes impurities, it also provides light, gentle exfoliation.
Who should use a clay cleanser?
For oily or combination skin, a clay cleanser can be a holy grail in clearing breakouts, soothing redness and preventing clogged pores. However, clay cleansing is not limited to any skin type. Clogged pores can cause dead skin to pile up on the surface, which can cause a dry or flaky complexion. Adding very light daily exfoliation with a gentle clay like Kaolin can dramatically help in sloughing away dead skin cells without irritating or damaging the epidermis. And, here’s a secret: for the absolute minimalist, Klar is a one-stop shop for keeping your complexion clean, clear and healthy. It completely eliminates the need to have a separate makeup remover and it is thoroughly effective in detoxifying your skin. For the self-care enthusiast, Klar provides the perfect blank canvas for deeper penetration and maximum efficacy of the rest of your favorite skincare products.
Give your skin everything it needs for a healthy glow with Klar, our clay cleanser made with clean ingredients. Add a splash of water and massage it into your skin for 30 seconds before rinsing thoroughly and revealing next-level clean skin prepped and ready for your active targeted serums and / or moisturizer.
