minerals and trace elements
We know that centuries ago our ancient ancestors knew of the powers of clay and, along with plants, herbs & other natural substances, was vital to ancient man in the absence of modern medicine. Today, however, as we increasingly steer away from much of conventional 21st century treatments and natural alternatives are becoming more popular, the benefits of clay are being rediscovered across the world. In France in particular the therapeutic use of clay is now commonplace and substantial numbers of users have testified to its success in treating a wide range of disorders.

How Can Green Clay Help Me?
Illite can be used topically. The essential minerals within the clay are released and the body absorbs those it needs to maintain health & vigour.
French Green Clay is believed to hinder the exacerbation of infection and have a regenerating action on the tissues.
Scientific research into this is ongoing. See (Williams & Haydel) and G.S.A. Press Release.
One of the most remarkable characteristics of illite is its ability to act according to each person's specific needs. Unlike chemical medicines, which can destroy healthy tissues and beneficial bacteria as well as bad, illite is selective allowing healing to take place at a natural rate. Green Clay also possesses analgesic properties effective in relieving muscular or joint pains by decongesting the affected area. In addition, Illite is a valuable beauty treatment and is the main ingredient in many natural face masks, bath & spa products. It has a deep cleansing action, removes dead skin cells, absorbs impurities, excess sebum & oils to keep the skin smooth, fresh & radiant.
