French Red Clay is the most absorbent of the kaolin clays, making it perfect for use with combination or oily skin.
It can be mixed with White Clay to create Pink Clay, which is often found in recipes.
Although our Mud Mask to Treat Oily Skin features Pink Clay, if your skin is especially oily you can substitute Red Clay instead.
