Fuller’s Earth clay is a sedimentary clay that has been widely used as a skin-lightening agent and is best known for its ability to be applied as a “facial bleach.” Because of its enormous drawing capabilities, Fuller’s Earth is the number one choice for oily. It literally draws oil from the skin and has been used industrially for this same purpose. This clay has been around for quite some time and recent developments in the natural cosmetics and skincare industries have helped to recontextualize this useful clay as more than just a solvent that simply soaks up spilled automotive oil.
In a cosmetic context, it marvels in comparison to other “whitening clays” and so far has outperformed any material to help clean oily skin. Fuller’s Earth clay is strong, so use gently. Fuller’s Earth is a naturally occurring sedimentary clay. It adds a nice finishing touch to clay products promising to aid its user with the battle against oily skin.
The line of Fuller’s Earth clay offered by Amber's Organics is quarry mined from naturally occurring deposits and is untreated.

Bentonite clay.Whether you have oily skin or not, your pores will undoubtedly become clogged at some point. Shrinking the size of your pores can help tremendously with keeping your face clean and blemishes as bay. The Clay helps control the overproduction of sebum. Too much oil on the skin, abnormal shedding of dead skin cells and excess bacteria generally results in acne. You may also be prone to outbreaks if you take certain medication, produce too much sebum (a natural oil) or have a family history of acne. Blackheads or whiteheads are produced due to an excess of sebum, which cause blocks within the hair follicles on the skin. Oily skin with too much sebum encourages the production of bacteria which irritates the skin. This can result in acne.Bentonite clay has a very strong negative electrical charge. Since many toxins have a positive charge, the clay bonds to them. When it comes in contact with a toxin, heavy metal, chemical, or other impurity, the clay will gobble up the toxin and release its minerals for the body to use. In addition, Bentonite clay also pulls hydrogen from cells, allowing room for oxygen. This helps with circulation, and overall skin tone and health. Bentonite clay is loaded with silica, a trace mineral that strengthens connective tissue including muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. In addition, it makes your skin tenderly soft.
