The mineral clay deposit at Kisameet Bay was likely formed when a volcanic explosion occurred during the Pleistocene Era, possibly at the end of the Ice Age, causing rapidly melting ice to mix with volcanic ash, resulting in a Lahar, or flow of volcanic debris. This dense material settled in a granite basin, and has remained undisturbed over centuries as the central coast rainforests emerged. The deposit has a relatively homogeneous state, lacks any sedimentary layers and contains ultra fine mineral particles.

Only Known in this Location

Pristine rainforest flora surrounds and covers the mineral clay deposit at Kisameet Bay and certainly contributes to the clay’s unique properties.

For thousands of years, the minerals in the Kisameet Bay deposit have given life to the nutrient-rich blanket of coastal flora.

Consistent mineral content, particle size, surface area and adsorptive capacity of the mineral clay from Kisameet Bay make it a remarkable, active ingredient for skincare emulsifications and formulas.

Functional Skincare

Our skin, the body’s largest organ, is subjected to many abuses while we live, work and play in an increasingly polluted environment. Harsh chemicals, cleaners and disinfectants are no longer perceived to be beneficial to our skin. In fact, it is now known that they can rob our skin of minerals and nutrients, and have a negative effect on our overall health and well being.
