How to Handle Clay

How to use clay

Follow these simple rules and tips to keep your clay clean, effective, and active:

  • Always use clean utensils when removing the clay from the container.
  • Clay can stain fabrics, handle with care and protect your clothes or fabrics.
  • Store the clay away from extreme heat and direct sunlight.
  • Keep out of the proximity of chemicals and strong odors.
  • Clay will increase oxygenation and blood circulation to the skin*. (*Sometimes clay can create redness and an itchy sensation, which is normal and not harmful).
  • If you are experiencing an active flare-up of rosacea, increased sensitivity, or burning, wait until the area has calmed down before treating it with clay.
  • The clay should be kept dry.
  • Never accept natural clay packaged in aluminum/metal bags.
  • Clay should never be handled with metal spoons or stored in metal containers.
  • The materials used to prepare the clay should be plastic-silicone, but preferably wooden, glass, ceramic spoons, bowls, etc.
  • For storage, you can use plastic, but paper, ceramic, or glass containers are recommended.
It is thought that clay loses its beneficial qualities through contact with metal.

Enjoy :)
