Featured Ingredient: French Green Clay

French Green clay, also known as Illite Clay or Sea Clay, is mined from bedrock quarries in France.  The clay we use at Root Science is of the highest quality, sun-dried, unrefined and contains no fragrance or additives. The use of mineral clay dates back thousands of years and has been used by people around the world for its miraculous skin benefits.  French green clay is a bio-mineral and contains natural minerals such as Silica, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Iron, Copper, Potassium, Aluminum, Sodium, Selenium, Cobalt, Titanium, and Phosphorous. Along with the abundant mineral content, French green clay is also rich in phytonutrients, micro-algae and kelp.  These inherent properties are the reasons why French green clay is a powerhouse of skin benefits. French green clay is also highly prized for its ability to stimulate blood flow to damaged skin cells. It tones, tightens and rejuvenates your complexion as it absorbs oil, impurities and removes dead skin cells.  A savior for those with oily and problematic skin conditions such as acne.

Use weekly. Mix 1 tsp dry formula with 1 tsp warm water in a bowl to form cleansing mud. Apply a thin layer onto face, avoiding eyes and lips. Allow mask to dry (15-20 minutes). Rehydrate mask and massage for gentle exfoliation. Rinse, pat dry and finish with a facial serum.


Detox is a 100% concentrated powder formula that’s water-free, eliminating the need for synthetic fillers and harsh preservatives. This allows you to fully customize your treatment depending on your needs. Simply select a hydrator of choice, such as floral water, honey/maple syrup, yogurt, or botanical oil. When mixing with oil or honey, mask will not fully dry on skin, which is ideal for areas on face that are prone to dryness or are extra sensitive. However, to effectively absorb impurities from pores and blemishes, mix with water and allow mask to fully dry. For those who are new to powder masks, we recommend mixing our powders in a bowl for ease of application and clean up. Take the time to experiment and have fun!

  1. Melisa F.

    My saving grace! Everytime my skin freaks out I dawn on this mask and there is a SIGNIFICANT reduction in the size and redness of the blemish I’d say 80% erradicated. This product also has helped control blackheads, which I am very prone to. It has also reduced the size of my pores especially around my nose. Great product, price fairly. Highly recommend!!

  2. Spenser

    This mask is awesome! It’s done a great job at clearing out my pores and reducing shine caused by humidity. I have combination acne-prone skin, and this is really a game-changer when used weekly, reducing blemish size and giving my skin a nice glow while somehow reducing redness. I don’t know what kind of herb magic is going on here, but please never stop making this!

  3. Michelle R

    Does exactly what it promises and then some! My blemishes and the redness around them goes down with just one treatment. Also does a wonderful job at keeping my pores clean. I’m only half way through my first bottle and its been 4 months, so a little goes a long way and its a great value for the quality of ingredients and gorgeous packaging!

  4. Brooke

    Yes, yes, YES to everything about this mask. I’ve been using this as a weekly mask on my face for about 2 months now and it works miracles! Every time after using it my face feels so silky smooth and literally feels like all the dirt and toxins have been removed. You use just a little bit mixed with water and it creates this thin mask for your whole face. You can feel it working it’s magic as it drys and tightens your face. Worth every penny.

  5. Alexis

    I’ve been using this as a weekly face mask and it does an amazing job at keeping my pores clear and I’ve noticed a major reduction in blemishes. It also works as a miracle spot treatment! My blemishes decrease in size almost immediately upon use and are completely healed within a day! A true savior for hormonal breakouts! Love the cooling effect it has on my skin and seems to work really well at decreasing redness around blemishes (making them less visible). All around another A+ product from Root Science.

  6. Amanda

    I absolutely love this mask! I’ve been using it twice a week for the past month. My skin appears more radiant and my pores are noticeably smaller. Adding this product to my regiment has kept my acne at bay which has been a challenge. I highly recommend this product.

  7. Dawn D.

    The powder to creamy mud is so much fun and feels amazing when applied. It feels almost like a cream once water is added but dries into into a clay mask after about 10 minutes. I’ve been using this for 2 weeks now and my skin is clear and pores are considerably smaller! Thank You!

  8. Florecita

    Just dropping by to say how much I love this mask! It’s been a life saver, especially when I’m prepping for an event and I’ve got a big ole 3rd eye that just wont go away! Thank You and please don’t stop making this! Cant live without!

  9. Kat

    I purchased this for my hormonal breakouts I experience monthly and its done an amazing job! When I use this mask, it reduces the size of my pimples and they go away in half the time. I used to use harsh acne spot treatments and this has been the best gentle alternative I have come across.
