Each of these types of clay are used in natural cosmetics and each color has its own unique set of properties.
Sodium (Na 2 O), magnesium (MgO), aluminum (Al2O3), silicon (SiO2), Potassium (K2O),
Titanium dioxide (TiO2), iron (Fe2O3), calcium (CaO).
Properties of the minerals
This mineral is closely linked to the collagen from our skin, so it must be present to prevent the formation of wrinkles and stretch marks. This mineral is not stored anywhere in the body, therefore its contribution to the skin will delay the aging of the skin and we´ll be sure to keep it hydrated and elastic.
The magnesium is considered as one of the most important elements of all the living organisms. It´s the second most abundant element in the interior of the cells and is involved in many biochemical reactions of the human beings.
Between the benefits that this mineral provides to us, we want to emphasize the important role, that makes in our skin, eliminating the aging signs or increasing the cells hydration; the magnesium is important for the skin, and has a key role as stimulates the activity and the cellular metabolism; so it is very beneficial for the skin regeneration. On the other hand, it also inhibits the substances that degrade the elastin in order to achieve a softer skin.
Most potassium is ionized in the interior of the cells; this mineral salt is attached to the sodium and its main functions are:
Regulate the water content of the cells; thanks to the so-called sodium pump / potassium, the body maintains the potassium into cells and the sodium, out; if there is acidosis in the organism, the potassium leaves the cell; if there is talkalosis, the opposite occurs; the potassium increases the muscle excitability and forms part of the construction of the protein; when the proteins are destroyed (catabolism) the potassium leaves the cells and when they are created (anabolism), it comes.
The potassium is involved in the glycogen synthesis. It's a great healing of the body, gives elasticity to the tissues and makes the muscles flexible, creates the grace, the beauty and the good disposition.
THE SODIUM (Na 2 O):
The sodium has a key role in the body because it controls and regulates the water balance, maintains the extracellular fluid osmotic pressure as well as the basic balance; the sodium is very important to avoid an excessive loss of fluids in the body. The sodium forms part of the secretory glands of the body, of the saliva and of the sweat.
THE IRON (Fe2O3):
The iron is an essential mineral that plays important roles in the body, carries the oxygen to the body tissues and strengthens the quality of the blood, increasing the resistance to stress and diseases, prevents the fatigue and the diseases resistance while stimulates the skin.
The properties of the titanium are numerous; it keeps the natural moisture, the skin healthy and hydrated and allows the skin to breathe without clogging of the pores. It has excellent absorbtion properties of ultraviolet rays.
THE CALCIUM (CaO)
The calcium has important benefits for the skin and is essential for the cellular metabolism of the skin. Another benefit of calcium in the skin which prevents the enzymes formation responsible for the degradation of the elastic fibers; it, also stimulates the collagen production, very important for your smooth and healthy skin.
Thus, the calcium stimulates the collagen formation in order to obtain a younger skin. This mineral stimulates the intercellular liquids production.
