Pink Clay: Why We Use it

In the realm of natural beauty and skincare, pink clay has emerged as a star ingredient. This magical substance is not only a treat for your face, but also your feet! But what exactly is pink clay, and what is it good for? Let’s look into the world of pink clay and discover its numerous benefits.

What is Pink Clay?

Pink clay, also known as French pink clay, is a combination of red and white clay. It gets its beautiful rosy hue from its mineral content, including iron oxide and silica. This natural ingredient has been used in skincare routines for centuries due to its gentle nature and powerful benefits. It’s suitable for all skin types, but particularly beneficial for sensitive or mature skin. Now that we know what pink clay is, let’s talk about why we put it in our “hit refresh” foot soak.

The Benefits of Pink Clay

Detoxifies and Cleanses


One of the primary benefits of pink clay is its ability to detoxify and cleanse the skin. It acts like a magnet, drawing out impurities, toxins, from your feet while leaving natural oils intact. The result? Clean, refreshed feet that feel rejuvenated.


Promotes Radiant Skin

Pink clay doesn’t just cleanse; it also promotes radiant skin by improving cell renewal processes. Rich in silica, it aids in collagen production — an essential protein that gives skin strength and elasticity. Regular use of pink clay can result in smoother and firmer looking skin.


Soothes Sensitive Skin

If you have sensitive or irritated skin, pink clay could be your new best friend! Its soothing properties help calm inflammation and redness, while providing gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells without causing any irritation.


The Power of Pink Clay in a Foot Soak

When used in a foot soak, pink clay acts like a magnet for toxins – drawing them out through the pores of your feet while also replenishing your skin with essential minerals. Pink clay has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe tired or swollen feet. It also helps exfoliate dead skin cells leaving your feet feeling soft and smooth.

Foot soaks have been used for centuries as a natural remedy for foot pain, swelling, and stress. Today, they are also commonly used to remove toxins from the body. At Wake Foot Sanctuary, we have many different types of foot soaks available. Our “Hit Refresh” float soak features Grapefruit, rosemary, fennel, and pink clay- making it the perfect soak for someone wanting to reap the benefits of pink clay. Book your appointment today!
