Pistachio Green Clay
French Green Clay comes from the sedimentation of Silico-aluminum, its coloring the result of the oxides contained in these rocks.
Its unique composition includes Iron, Silica, Aluminum, Magnesium, Calcium, Titanium, Sodium and Potassium. French Green Clay is prepared for the commercial market by a process of sun-drying and crushing.
After the clay has been mined, it is spread in the sun to remove excess water. It is then ground by large hydraulic crushers and micronized, or finely pulverized.
The last stage in the process is a final period of sun-drying to remove the last traces of water.
