Fullers earth is a mineral clay that's found abundantly in the world. Fullers earth is a type of clay that has many uses. It has properties that allow it to absorb oil. This has made it useful in industry where it's been used to soak up automotive oil and grease. It's also been used as a component of cat litter. The name of fullers earth comes from the people who were the first to capitalize on its use. Laborers who processed wool used it to soak up the oil from the sheep. These workers were called "fullers" and that's where the clay gets its name. Also known as Multani Mitti Clay, it is similar to kaolin clay.
It is formed by the decomposition of volcanic ash. Fullers used it to clean sheep's wool prior to spinning it, and hence the reason for its name. Multani Mitti Clay is highly absorbent. It is good for drawing excess oils from the skin and stimulating circulation to the skin. Limit to 1 application per week. Do not use for sensitive or dry skin types.
