Historically used as a healing clay by local indigenous peoples, this 100 percent natural clay powder is an abundant source of micro- and macro-minerals, likely created from a volcanic eruption that poured a mineral-rich slurry of fine volcanic ash, pure glacial water, and numerous micro- and macro-minerals into a deep granite basin now famously known as the Kisameet Bay Clay Deposit.
“You could say that the story of Kisameet actually began centuries ago,” said Kevin Sathre, Coast Southwest Senior Vice President, Sales, “when this unique, blue-green mineral clay was first discovered by the Heiltsuk people. Oral tradition confirms that it was used as healing clay.”
This 100 percent natural clay powder is ideal for spa applications and topical skin formulations.
Coast Southwest will feature Kisameet Glacial Clay at the May 7-8 New York Society of Cosmetic Chemists Suppliers’ Day 2019 in Booth #1355.
