The Skin Clays Story

Centuries ago, man first observed that animals, either wounded or with skin conditions, would instinctively roll in clay and muddy watering holes. By doing so, these animals would naturally heal themselves and avoid life-threatening infections and diseases.

The conclusion was simple: clay has healing properties. Healers began to identify the effects of the various clays and would create medicinal clay mixtures. These mixtures had numerous benefits to humans. Some mixtures were used to heal a variety of wounds, some could draw out poisons, whilst others would be used on their faces to beautify and lighten the skin.

For the past few years the Skin Clays team has embarked on a journey connecting the past and present: ancient healing methods used in a modern way to counteract the negative effects of a modern lifestyle on our skin. Our aim is to explore these ancient methods further and reveal the unique and exclusive properties locked away within the clays’ minerals.

By allowing clays and botanicals from Mother Earth to heal and restore our skin, we can return to a natural state of balance again.

Skin Clays is the product of years of hard work; a journey that has really challenged our team.
Our biggest challenges were, and still are:

  • Searching the African continent for reliable suppliers of quality natural and unspoiled clays.
  • Sourcing indigenous plant oils, plant butters and plant extracts
  • Experimenting with these clays and botanical extracts to create new and innovative products with optimal combinations and ratios of clays and botanicals to ensure maximum benefit to the skin.

The continuous positive feedback our products have received so far has definitely made all our hard work worthwhile.

Skin Clays is skin wellness ensured by the purest botanical extracts and natural clays.
