Article: The origin of the elysian Volcanic Clay


The origin of the elysian Volcanic Clay

In 2015, doing some explorations in the State of Durango, Mexico, there was discovered a different deposit, deep and difficult to access, which broke with all the characteristics of the materials that were commonly extracted.

For months, samples were sent to different laboratories and all of them came to the conclusion that we had found a natural pink volcanic clay of very high purity with an extraordinary load of minerals that made it different from all the others.

There are many different colored clays in the world, but what separates elysian volcanic clay from the rest is that it has been tested and found to be one of the purest and most complete montmorillonite volcanic clays available.

Some of the tests that were made were:

  • methylene blue titration, 
  • cation exchange, 
  • swelling and water retention capacity, 
  • mineral loadings, including carbonates, magnesium, sodium, calcium, etc.

This clay and its components allow it to be used all over the body, and not exclusively on the face, while presenting amazing results and improvements in the skin.

Our clay can also be mixed with oils and other organic products without losing its properties and, in fact, adding the properties of these oils for an even more complete treatment.

Its extraction is handmade, therefore respecting Mother Nature and its milling is perfect to the extent that it completely avoids abrasion to the skin. The elysian volcanic clay is packaged the way it comes directly from Mother Earth. It is a true gift of nature that ensures you will be applying a pure mask that does not contain any chemicals or additives to your face and body. Most importantly, in its commitment to ecology, it does not harm the ecosystem from which it is extracted.

Its benefits

Our 100% pure elysian Volcanic Clay Mask provides natural organic minerals that help repair the skin with the nourishment it needs. It is suitable for all skin types due to its light texture and restorative properties.

It deeply cleanses and shrinks pores, detoxifies and clarifies the skin, helps eliminate acne and blackheads, improves skin elasticity and cell renewal while gently exfoliating dead skin cells.

SIts anti-aging properties prevent the appearance of wrinkles and increases blood circulation in the skin. This illuminating and purifying mask is designed to leave skin feeling silky, fresh and radiant.

How to use

Our elysian clay is for all skin types and we recommend mixing it with our Punto Suave clay bowl kit. 

For dry and sensitive skin mix a small amount of clay with unrefined olive, grape, coconut oil or the oil of your choice.

For rather oily and resistant skin mix with water, herbal tea, yogurt or egg white. 

  • Apply it on the face, neck, décolleté, hands or any area of the body.
  • Avoid applying the mask near the eye and lip area.
  • Leave on for 5, 10 or 15 minutes depending on your skin type. 
  • Rinse with lukewarm water using circular motions if you wish to exfoliate.
  • Apply elysian dermo-regenerating moisturizing cream after rinsing.
