One of the rarest and purest clays in the world, Glacial Clay is gaining widespread recognition for its efficacy within beauty, cosmetic and personal care applications.

Our Glacial Clay is a 100% natural cosmetic clay sourced from a deposit that has recently been discovered in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Comprised of nontronite, illite and kaolin clays, Glacial Clay was gradually formed over the span of millions of years from the continuous striking of ancient glacial ice with volcanic ash. Green nontronite is a rare, mineral-rich clay that belongs to the smectite group of clay minerals.

Our Glacial Clay is carefully sourced and packaged to maintain the purity and freshness of this highly beneficial clay. The clay is not irradiated.
