GLACIER MARINE CLAY- this clay’s net negative ion charge attracts most positively charged bacteria, contaminants, and toxins, thereby detoxifying, rejuvenating, revitalizing, and deep cleansing the skin to a new radiance. The osmotic power of the clay pulls moisture up from deep inner tissues to hydrate the surface of the skin and also cleans the skin without dehydrating it. Aids in softening the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and improving and stimulating blood circulation in the newly exposed skin cells, leaving the skin feeling refreshed, alive and glowing.
VANCOUVER ISLAND BULL KELP - small batch. Ethical & locally hand harvested. Extremely mineral rich. Balances body chemistry instead of dehydrating it.

Vitamin K in seaweeds boosts adrenal activity, which balances hormones.
