QuickSilverHair Products are made with Organic and/or Natural Ingredients
Kaolin Clay (kaolinite) has been used for centuries for cosmetics:
- It has skin healing properties, helping with acne prone skin.
- Kaolin acts as a natural preservative making products it is blended with last longer.
- It is commonly used in barrier creams to protect skin, in make-up, and for facial masks and soaps.
- Excellent replacement for synthetic ingredients that cause rashes and hives.
- The naturally occurring mineral, kaolinite, is a gentle clay for sensitive skin.
- A soft porous clay, it is adsorbent, and adsorbs and lifts away impurities.
The same impurities that can be found on the skin are also in your hair if not more. Our hair has constant exposure to the elements. Kaolin as a mask for the hair helps adsorb excess oils, impurities, and discoloration, detoxing your hair of many of the harsh elements it adsorbs. It gently cleanses and purifies your hair, leaving it soft and shiny. I have blended the clay with organic cornstarch that absorbs staining and oils, I have carefully selected essential oils that cleanse, rejuvenate, and detox your hair and scalp.
Kaolin is ideal for dry hair since it is so gentle. It is a naturally occurring silica and helps gently exfoliate your scalp, leaving your hair with elasticity and strength, some even claim it is beneficial for hair growth. *Silica is not the same as silicones, silicones are chemical derivatives of silicas.
