Clays are the main constituents of the earth's surface. They play a vital role in the life of man, and nature’s kingdoms. Green clay is marine origin, which is why it is so rare! Rich in trace elements and natural salts found in sea water, green clay carries with it the rhythm of the waves and tides, and because of this units the two most important cosmic forces, the Sun and the Moon.
Green Clay is extracted almost all year in the far south of Sicily from a quarry round; a clean, sunny and windy place, not far from the Mediterranean Sea. When excavated, the clay is turquoise-blue, but as it dries, the color changes to green, and then to light grey when dry and free of moisture. However, once this clay comes back into contact with water, its green color shows up again in all its beauty! Green clay is the bearer of life force, and of the warm energy absorbed by the sun during the drying process, which takes place in the summer months immediately after it has been excavated. A unique heritage that makes green clay a body shaper and which, thanks to the presence of silica, helps to slow down the ageing process, making it an exceptional natural anti-ageing agent as well as an excellent remedy for soothing, purifying and regenerating the skin. Green clay is able to absorb excess heat and alleviate painful discomfort; it also protects, moulds, regenerates, stimulates and keeps the skin young with its powers from light, and the subtle scents of cosmic origin that it holds in the heart of the Earth; it absorbs stress and free radicals, leaving the skin silky soft and supple. Green clay applied to the hair makes it shiny, healthy and thick. Fine green clay is also suitable for footbaths/handbaths (relaxing and regenerating tired and weary feet/hands), poultices, face and body masks.
