The cacao tree is native to the Amazon. It was grown and used by the Olmecs and Mocayas more than 4,000 years ago.
Raw cacao is high in anti-ageing antioxidants which combat free radical damage, help protect the skin, improve hydration and complexion. It is also rich in magnesium, vitamin C and Omega 6. These promote cell repair, skin regeneration and rejuvenation. Cocoa butter is perfect for soothing inflamed or sensitive skin.
Named after the Kao-ling mountain in China, Kaolin clay has been used for centuries as a soothing and refreshing face mask.
It cleanses the pores without causing redness, absorbs excess oil, provides skin stimulation for tone and tightness. It’s a great exfoliant peeling off dead cells which allow the nutrients from other antioxidant ingredients to sink in. Importantly, it not only cleanses the skin surface but detoxifies by deeply cleansing the pores. It is gentle and is suitable for all skin types, including those sensitive to scrubs and cleansers.
Kaolin clay is also helpful for treating red blotchy painful and pus filled acne.
