Mm Multani Mitti  
Multani Mitti

Clay was one of the earliest substances to be used as a beauty mask - probably something to do with the fact that we all have lolled about in mud as children and loved it. Multani mitti is literally (mud from Multan, an area now in Pakistan where the lime-rich clay was originally found.

For thousands of years, till modern cosmetics took over, Multani mitti had been used as face-packs by women in the Indian subcontinent.

Multani mitti is a natural cleanser and astringent. It cleans the skin while maintaining the natural balance of skin oils. It facilitates blood circulation of the face, treats minor infections, and provides new life to skin.
