Brazilian White Clay
Brazilian White Clay is formed after floods of the rainy season starting late November to February and the high-water season – from March to May, the Amazon rivers rise and flood the low-lying forests. From June to August, floodwater begins to drain, leaving behind throughout the banks of the Amazon Rivers, beaches, and islands a nutrient-rich soil.
In the Amazon, the soil’s particle size decreases significantly with an increase in soil depth. Amazonian White Clay is found in the soil’s layer within inches of the topsoil.
Varying from light yellow-greenish to medium gray color depending on the part of the forest and the soil composition where it is harvested, Brazilian White Clay is rich in:
Iron is an essential nutrient for skin beauty. Iron carries oxygen to all the cells of the body, ensuring the “breathing” of each.

When this happens, the disease is installed.
