Zion Health announces Adama Minerals Natural Claymask is now available at Whole Foods Market in Southern California. As part of Zion's healing clay line of wholesale natural skin care products, Claymask uses a unique formula of mineral-rich clays and plant extracts that naturally cleanse and firm skin while helping prevent adult acne.
Claymask can be applied in a thin layer for makeup removal and natural skin cleansing or as a paste for deep pore detox and removal of blackheads. The combination of acne reducing botanical extracts and detoxifying healing clays in Zion Health's Claymask is known to stimulate skin’s immune defenses, reduce inflammation and naturally nourishe skin tissue.
Zion Health's Claymask contains the active ingredients meadowsweet and yarrow and the healing clays Kanwa and kaolin. Commonly used in prescription medications, meadowsweet stimulates the anti-microbial peptide in a skin defense mechanism to inhibit bacterial growth. A study in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science demonstrated that participants witnessed a drop in facial oil secretion and a reduction in acne lesion counts after the application of meadowsweet extract.
Yarrow root is a known anti-inflammatory agent that helps prevent skin blemishes and stops skin cell deterioration leading to fine lines and wrinkles. Further studies from the International Journal of Cosmetic Science showed that yarrow root significantly improved the appearance of wrinkles and pores. Yarrow also contains silica, which is known to enhance the production of collagen and improve skin elasticity. The use of herbal extracts such as meadowsweet and yarrow root in Zion Health Adama Minerals Claymask offers a natural alternative to astringent, chemical-based skin masks.
Mineral-sourced clay has been used for natural skin care for centuries across indigenous civilizations. Kanwa, or calcium montmorillonite, is known as a “living clay,” and is both detoxifying and nourishing with more than 57 trace elements. The rich collection of minerals have been known to help firm sagging tissues and restore nutrients to moisture-deprived skin. Scientifically proven to bind and eliminate harmful bacteria and toxins, pure Kanwa clay combined with botanical herbs in Adama Minerals Claymask naturally cleanses skin and tightens pores.
