Key Ingredients

Kaolin Clay
This light, fine ground, illite clay is rich in iron, silica, calcium, sodium and potassium and a favourite for spa wraps and masks. Its high mineral ion content helps to cleanse skin, and research has shown it may improve skin firmness and texture.

Pineapple Fruit Extract
This purified powder taken from the fruiting body of the Ananas comosus is rich in the heavily researched proteolytic enzyme bromelain. This enzyme acts to exfoliate the stratum corneum, promoting skin renewal. Clinically, extracts of bromelain have been used to treat burnt skin to alter the microenvironment and promote healthy skin regeneration.
