7 Ways Glacial Clay Helps Restore Youthful Skin

Mineral-rich Canadian Glacial Oceanic Clay is gaining increasing recognition as an effective ingredient in skincare wellness.  Here at NENA Skincare, we’ve invested in a year-long research study with University of British Columbia, and discovered some new, groundbreaking benefits of our natural glacial oceanic clay. In-vitro research studies show that:

  • Glacial clay contains soothing and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Glacial clay increases collagen production by 70%, meaning it has anti-aging benefits.

To break this down, we have rounded up some specific benefits of glacial clay that can help you restore your skin's youthful look.

Increases Collagen Production of the Skin

In-vitro tests show that 50% of Glacial Oceanic Clay can increase the collagen production by 70% compared to control. This means that glacial clay has anti-aging benefits.  

Naturally Hydrates Your Skin 

Having hydrated skin is the first step to achieving a fresher, more youthful look. Glacial Oceanic Clay uses its osmotic strength to pull moisture up from deep inner tissues to hydrate the face. It cleanses the skin but does not dehydrate it as other cleansing agents may do. 

Controls Sebum Production

Our skin naturally produces an oil called sebum. When overworked, this result can be acne, blackheads, whiteheads, oily skin and blemishes. Treating this with a clay mask can soak up excess sebum and clean out any clogged pores from the resulting excess oil.

Has Anti-inflammatory Properties

As we grow older, the toxins in our body can leave our faces looking puffy, especially around the eye area. With its anti-inflammatory properties, Glacial Oceanic clay can help cool and soothe the skin as it has an effect on inflammatory response of immune cells.

Rich in Minerals 

Minerals plays an important role in healthy skin development and function. Glacial Oceanic Clay contains more than 60 minerals and rare earth elements such as calcium, magnesium and potassium.

Smoothes Wrinkles 

Glacial Oceanic Clay deeply purifies the skin by removing dirt, dead skin cells, and make up. This refreshes, tightens and tones your skin, visibly smoothing and firming it which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Magnetic Clean

With aging comes poor circulation, internal inflammation, and dehydration. These elements can contribute to the skin looking aged. The particles in Glacial Oceanic clay are negatively charged, while the skin’s impurities are positively charged. When applied to the skin, the negative ions from the clay attract the impurities in the skin, and when you wash your face, the impurities are removed with the clay ensuring a deep clean, leaving the skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.
