Clay has been used for centuries for health and beauty remedies. Using clay at home is one of the simplest ways to promote your own self care. Sometimes, a visit to a professional spa is not an option and creating your own home spa is simple and inexpensive.
When we talk about clay, we don’t mean any old clay, but a high-quality clay product that is ethically sourced, rich in minerals and of therapeutic grade, such as Argital’s Fine Green Marine Clay. This product is so versatile and a great addition to the natural medicine cabinet.

Soft, easy to use, Argital Fine Green Marine Clay is highly detoxifying on the body and a natural anti-ageing agent.
