Description

Fuller's earth is any clay material that has the capability to decolorize oil or other liquids without chemical treatment.

Fuller's earth consists primarily of hydrous aluminum silicates (clay minerals) of varying composition. Common components are montmorillonite, kaolinite and attapulgite. Small amounts of other minerals may be present in fuller's earth deposits, including calcite, dolomite, and quartz.

Modern uses of fuller's earth include absorbents for oil, grease, and animal waste (cat litter) and as a carrier for pesticides and fertilizers. Minor uses include filtering, clarifying, and decolorizing; active and inactive ingredient in beauty products; and as a filler in paint, plaster, adhesives, and pharmaceuticals.

Historically, 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.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Absorbent - Being a natural absorbent, fuller’s earth can be used to remove excess oil from oily skin. It can also unclog skin pores and balance the natural pH level of the skin. It’s commonly used as a homemade face pack.

Circulatory – It is a popular treatment for dandruff. It absorbs oil, grease and dirt that cause dandruff. Plus, it facilitates blood circulation in the scalp, which is essential to keep the scalp clean and free of flakes.

Skin Complaints - Fuller’s earth can reduce the appearance of wound scars, minor burn marks or any other kind of scars to a great extent. It also helps with acne. It helps get rid of clogged pores and reduces excess oil secretion, two main causes of acne and pimples.

Cleansing Agent – Fuller’s earth is an excellent cleansing agent that can improve your skin complexion.
