Beraca Offers Amazonian Clay

December 9, 2005

Amazonian clay from Rain Forest Specialties, a division of Beraca Ingredients, São Paulo, Brazil, helps to eliminate toxins on the surface of the skin and contains mineral and nutrient salts that help combat free radicals. It contains unsaponificable substances originating from the seeds and leaves of the rain forest. Because it is naturally humidified and rich in oligo-elements, it has less astringent properties than other clays. It can be used in facial and capillary masks, creams, lotions and soaps.
