Kaolin clay, also referred to as white clay or China clay, is primarily made up of the mineral kaolinite. The name ‘kaolin’ derives from the ‘Gaoling’, a Chinese village located in the southeast province of Jiangxi. The mineral in its purest form is bright white, but the clay may have a colored hue depending on the mineral content of the areas where it's mined.
Why Choose Kaolin Clays For Aging, Sensitive or Dry Skin types?
The higher the absorption level, the more moisture the clay takes out of your skin. Bentonite clay can absorb 300 - 700% of its mass in water, while Kaolin clay absorbs only 65%. This means that bentonite clay will not just absorb any excess oils, but all the necessary fluids necessary to keep skin moist and healthy. Kaolin clay is able to help with acne by reducing the level of oil without leaving your skin dry and unhealthy.
PH Level and Skin
The pH level of your skin is important for its overall health. When the pH level is too high, your skin is unable to properly combat the harmful microbes and free radicals that speed up the aging process. The higher the pH level of the clay you use, the more damage it will do to your skin in this regard. (Apple cider vinegar helps balance clays with a high PH level.) Kaolin clay has a much lower pH level than Bentonite and other clays, meaning it’s far less damaging to the pH level of your skin.
