Absorbent and cleansing
Fuller’s earth is a sedimentary clay that absorbs excess oil on the skin and provides a deep, gentle and effective cleanse.
Historically, English textile workers, or “fullers” as they were once called, would clean raw wool by kneading it in a mixture of water and fine earth. The ‘earth’ consisted of a number of clays. This process cleaned the fibres by absorbing dirt, oil and other contaminants. Modern fuller’s earth is fine-grained, crumbly and has higher water content.
