This clay comes from the San Antonio area of Belize and was been used by the Mayan people to make pots for culinary and ritual purposes. It is rich is calcite, iron and other minerals which make it a great mask for normal to oily skin. It is combined with organic, dried rose petals and rose geranium leaves which cleanse and calm the skin. Relax and enjoy.
This can also be combined with the other elements of our Tierra & Lava Face Ritual (see also our Vapor Blends, Facial Cleansers, Toners, Face Masks and Scrubs and Face Creams).

We work closely with local and organic suppliers – both providing fair wages and employment in my community as well as fair prices for supplies. We take great pride in being familiar with the source of our key ingredients and introducing our supplier family to the world. This vision is also reflected in our packaging. All Tierra & Lava products are packaged in glass, aluminum or cardboard. Our soap is wrapped in a combination of brown paper and a label with as little colour as possible while still conveying the vivid culture of Guatemalan handmade textiles. he vapor blends and toners are bottled in glass; the face scrubs and creams in glass jars. And our tags are made of handmade recycled paper. Our packaging is not all locally sourced as yet, as it is prohibitively expensive and requires mass production but we hope to be able to work with local factories in the future and in the meantime our packaging comes from reputable third parties with eco-friendly and repurposable options.
Packaged in a thick walled glass jar with black plastic lid and moisture seal, I hope you will be able to find a use for this beautiful jar when you come to the end of your clay.
DISCLAIMERS & RECOMMENDATIONS
For best shelf life, keep all Tierra & Lava products in cool, dark places when possible. This scrub is made with all organic and botanical ingredients and is only preserved by the characteristics of the ingredients themselves.
As our products are all handmade and mixed, slight variations may occur from batch to batch.
To use: In a small clean bowl, make a paste with 1 full teaspoon of clay and 1 teaspoon of water. Wet your face. Apply the paste evenly over the skin avoiding the eyes. Leave to dry until hard. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Keep clay in a cool, dark place. Caution should be exercised as clay may stain fabric.
