Benefits of clays in natural soap

What is clay?

It's a soft, finely-grained, mineral-rich material formed over long periods of time, as a result of the natural weathering of rocks. It normally combines several types of silicates (of aluminium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium etc.), along with traces of quartz, metal oxides and organic matter. All of these minerals are beneficial for our skin.
