Kaolin/White Clay: What It Is and Products Containing It
Amazonian white clay cleans the skin by removing dead skin cells and excess sebum. It has deeply purifying effects on your complexion and absorbs impurities from clogged pores. Bentonite has similar absorbing properties but acts more aggressive towards sebum and clogged pores. Kaolin is, therefore, gentler and less drying.
