The Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is probably the most famous clay product that exists and is even used by celebrities. Made of natural calcium bentonite clay, it promises deep cleansing that extracts dirt and gunk settled inside the pores.

The Greenberry Organics Brazilian Rainforest Clay Purple Clay Mask is quite unlike what you imagine clay to be. It contains lilac toned clay from Brazilian rainforests that works to tone the face and reduce wrinkles.

The L'Oreal Pure-Clay Mask doesn't contain 1 or 2 but 3 different clays. It is made with kaolin, montmorillonite and Moroccan lava clay with red algae that draws out impurities and exfoliates the face.

The Alanna Naturally Beautiful 4 in 1 Exotic Clay Face Mask goes a step further and combines volcanic mud ash clay, French red clay, kaolin and more ingredients like turmeric and neem in a vegan formula that works on firmness, pigmentation and blemishes.

The Nature's Tattva Morrocan Rhassoul Red Clay is rich in iron and can be used for the face and body to lessen dryness and improve skin clarity.

The Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is one of the most popular clay products in the K-beauty world. Straight from Jeju island, it uses volcanic clay that gets down to business to clean out pore residue and dirt for acne-prone, oily and combination skin.

The Raw Nature Body Wash shows us that clay doesn't only need to be used in a face pack. With volcanic gold clay, it deeply cleanses the skin while washing and leaves an earthy fragrance behind.
