Meet Generation ClayTM – a trio of clay masks made from all Australian botanicals! If there is anything we have learnt from natural skincare, it’s that sometimes the weirdest-sounding ingredients are usually the best ones. So going by that logic – Davidson plum, Kakadu plum and activated charcoal must be really good for our skin!
This gem is native to Northern Australia and contains anti-aging properties, with naturally derived phyto-active compounds to tackle fine lines and wrinkles and prevent sagging. The extracts from the Davidson plum act like a natural alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) to smooth skin and decrease puffiness. Most importantly, antioxidants help lighten dark circles and pigmentation in the complexion to restore radiance!
Forget oranges for Vitamin C, we’ve found something with over 50 times the concentration found in oranges! The Kakadu plum contains 3000mg of Vitamin C per 100g of fruit! The Generation Clay Purifying Pink Clay Mask natural anti-inflammatory, antioxidants for those of us prone to sensitivity – reducing redness, inflammation and irritation. Bonus ellagic acid to help restore elasticity to skin.
Activated charcoal, produced from substances like bamboo, coconut husk or wood, is burned without any oxygen to produce char. The char is then heated in high temperatures to make it absorbent, and this is the “activation” stage of the process. Activated charcoal is known to help remove bacteria, balance pH levels and minimise pores. It has antibacterial properties that can assist with acne and prevent any further breakouts. The clay detoxifies by acting as a magnet for toxins and impurities like dirt and oil that are commonly found on the skin.
