CANADIAN GLACIAL CLAY – INVALUABLE MOTHER NATURE TO THE SKIN
Canadian Glacial Clay is increasingly recognized as an effective skincare ingredient thanks to its anti-aging properties with over 60 natural minerals. This clay has become an indispensable skin care ingredient, especially for those who wish to have healthy young skins.
Origins of Canadian Glacial Clay
After the last ice age about 14,000 years ago, the glaciers began to melt, creating hollow areas filled with sediments.
Over time, supply of water ran out in these glaciers, leading to a large layer of clay formed by chemical, mechanical, and biological processes. They also include the phenomenon of weathering, leaching and sedimentation over a long period of time.
It is these factors that make up the Canadian glacial clay. And the most of the kind of clay was found in British Columbia, Canada. Analyzing clay here, research scientists have revealed there are many micronutrients and vitamins that in this clay.
The outstanding advantages of Canadian ice clay
Over hundreds of years, the people in Western Canada (the First Nations people) have been using this pure, natural mineral-rich clay as a remedy: Eating a spoon of the clay will help boost the immune system to survive through the freezing Canadian winter. Or, applying this clay on the surface of wounds, cuts will help these wounds heal faster.

In modern times, ice clay has been more widely used due to its ability to “help promote the regeneration of aging skin cells and tissues” that has been demonstrated by dermatological studies.
As age increases, we are more likely to have poor circulation, more severe internal inflammation or dehydration. Besides, living in polluted and harsh environments also causes harm to the body and skin.
A study of Canadian glacial clay conducted by Dr. Ernst A. Hauser, a chemistry professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology revealed that the high absorption capacity of this clay makes it become an ideal material to remove impurities and toxins from skin.
