Fuller’s earth clay is a naturally occurring sedimentary clay with enormous drawing capabilities and considered the top clay for oily skin. It literally draws oil from the skin and has been used industrially for this same purpose. It has been around for quite some time and recent developments in the natural cosmetics and skincare industries have helped to recontextualize this useful clay for more than just cleaning.
In a cosmetic context, it often outperforms other clays to help clean oily skin. This clay is powerful alone, and for best results combine with a small amount of bentonite clay. It is a useful base ingredient for facial mask recipes and adds a nice finishing touch to clay products helpful for balancing complexions.
