Why do we sell our clay masks in dry powder form???

 

 

          One of the newest products is our dry clay masks. I started making clay masks a few years ago to help with my cystic hormonal acne. These masks have literally been a game changer for me. I had been to countless doctors and dermatologists and tried everything you name it! I was even put on Acutane in my early 20's before I knew how horrible it was for my body. I was just so desperate and wanted to have clear skin. It affected my self esteem big time. I learned later in life what I thought was being "healthy" wasn't really and how to eat to heal my body rather than hurt it.  Did you know that when you add water (or any ingredient containing water in it's composition) to any type of powdered clay it then requires a preservative to keep mould fungi, and bacteria from forming withing days....possibly even hours??  

          Clay is an ingredient in the cosmetic industry that is notorious for being incredibly hard to PROPERLY preserve.  Now think about that for a minute.... so when you buy a facial mask in the store that is nice and whipped and creamy and has ANY ingredients containing water in it's composition, (this could be anything from flower water to fruit juice to Aloe Vera juice) it has either been very heavily preserved with some scary preservatives or even scarier not preserved at all.  When something like a mask that sits on your skin and penetrates it for long periods of time you don't exactly want a harsh toxin like that in it, or adversely you don't want to be slathering disgusting bacteria and mould all over your skin either. This happens when companies use an ineffective preservative or no preservative at all.  Did you know that the majority of the "natural" preservatives out there fail stability tests?!?!   Imagine the problems you could come into with your skin if your were slathering mouldy disgusting disease causing bacteria all over it?  Imagine you have a small open cut on your skin where this bacteria comes into contact with.... umm yeah so scary is right! Kinda makes you rethink the lovely face mask hey?


           Now that I have scared you silly..... I will go into another BIG reason I sell my mask as a dry powder. When clay and other dry extracts come into contact with liquids the product becomes "active".  When a liquid/wet mask is stored in a jar it becomes less and less active over time, meaning the mask will lose it effectiveness over time.  So because our masks are dry the ingredients remain just as effective from the first time you use the product to the last time you use the product in the jar!  This also ensures a longer shelf life without the use of harsh synthetic preservatives. So please use clean dry hands or clean utensils when scooping your desired amount of clay from the container for use!  I hope this was an informative read for you.

Love this product!

It has helped with my tooth sensitivity. I even had a sensitive free dental cleaning! I ordered one for my son because of a tooth that was sensitive and he said after a few days his tooth was less sensitive! Awesome stuff!

Great Idea!

I loved the idea of the Sampler Bundle and being able to try the products first to see if I would like them! I loved the deodorant and facial toner. I liked the consistency of the facial creme and how it felt when I put it on, but have to admit that unfortunately I am not a fan of the scent. I haven't yet tried the facial mask, but am sure it will be the same great quality as all of the other products that came in the bundle.

Great Product!

I currently have a natural deodorant that I use, but have been searching for one that works for me that is made in Canada. Well, I have found it! I loved that I was able to order samples in different scents to see which ones I would like. I loved the scents of all the samplers I ordered, but better than that, they actually work! I can put it on in the morning before going to work and it lasts all day for me. I also reapplied some before going to do my workout (a HIIT class) and at the end of my workout, I was sweaty, but the scent of the deodorant remained! I do find that after applying the deodorant I have to rub it in a bit with my fingers, which I have no problem with. I do wonder whether this is the case just with the samples? Overall, I am very happy with this product and will be placing my next deodorant order with Glowing Orchid Organics for sure!

My favourite scent

I love love love this product and this scent. The quality and longevity of the scent lasts all day and the deodorant itself lasts for weeks. And they sent me a little card thanking me on my first purchase. Very nice! A forever customer!

Excellent product
