Kaolin, The Unbelievable Benefits You Had No Idea About

Ever heard of Kaolin? At PurPicks, we started noticing this soft, white, powdery substance in more and more of the natural products from our brands, and it’s no wonder — kaolin has been used throughout the world for centuries in all kinds of ways! Porcelain, rubber, paint, paper, you name it, there’s probably kaolin involved. When it comes to beauty products, you can find kaolin used as an exfoliant to aid in purifying the skin and, in serums and masks, this ingredient is a godsend for clearing pores and keeps you from feeling too oily or too dry. Below are a few products containing kaolin that PurPicks’ health conscious community can’t resist:

Felt like I was at a spa!

Easy to apply. You could start to feel it working right away. It has a warming type sensation on your skin. Felt like I was at a spa. Easily washes off. My skin felt smooth and soft after. I am not normally a person who does masks but I really enjoyed this one. I also love the ingredients.

Feels natural on the scalp!

I don’t like the smell, yet it performs so well that I just forgot about the smell #lol. Very light weight, and feels natural on the scalp.


Gave my hair a natural look!

It performs very well! I have dark hair and I was concerned about the white powder but it disappears very fast. Gave my hair a natural look with no need to wash with water. I really liked!



I would definitely recommend anyone who have oily hair to try this product, it is very helpful.
