Ingredient Spotlight: Volcanic ASh

Volcanic ash has long been used in beauty routines and skin care products. Many historians believe Cleopatra used volcanic ash in a face mask to keep her skin looking youthful. Volcanic ash is believed to pack a powerful purifying punch, which is why we use it in our Purifying Detox Facial Bar and Purifying Micro-Scrub. In addition to its detoxifying characteristics, here are the top reasons volcanic ash can be a great addition to your beauty routine:

Exfoliating

Volcanic ash can be used as a mild exfoliant for the skin. Exfoliating removes dead skin cells, and cleanses pores. The exfoliating nature of volcanic ash may also help with the appearance of those pesky whiteheads and blackheads, without being as abrasive as some other exfoliants.

Effective for All Skin Types

Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, aging skin, or normal skin, volcanic ash can be used by all. If you have particularly troubled skin, volcanic ash has been used by many to reduce the appearance of eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

Age-Defying

Cleopatra was onto something because many anti-aging products on the market use volcanic ash for its anti-aging perks. Volcanic ash helps synthesize collagen in the skin which can help to keep skin looking firm and youthful. In addition, it is believed volcanic ash protects skin from environmental toxins, which can speed up the appearance of aging skin.

Anti-Bacterial

Because of the high sulfur content, volcanic ash helps the body to not only destroy bacteria, it resists it too! The sulfur found in volcanic ash also can help to protect against environmental toxins throughout the day so your face can feel clean and fresh all day!

Refresh Tired Eyes

Nowadays, it’s hard to get 8 hours of sleep, but that doesn’t mean you have to look tired. Cheat the system by looking more rested with volcanic ash. Many beauty enthusiasts believe volcanic ash can help reduce the appearance of puffy, dark circles underneath the eyes over time. Sign us up!
