EQUITY

Our enthusiasm dates from far back. ARGILETZ has been in existence for more than 55 years: our longevity shows we were real pioneers who saw a way to modernize and bring the great benefits of naturally sun-dried green Illite clay to the awareness of the general public.

During all these years, ARGILETZ has combined experience with innovation. As the indisputable leader, we have taken the time to discover the scope of the unsuspected proper ties of clay, to evaluate their complex scientific reality and to create new and effective products.

By making its products available to the g reatest number of people, ARGILETZ remains attentive to the well-being of all ‘citizens of the world’ and carefully educates them in the ecological use of naturally sundried green Illite clay.

RESPECT Indebted to our planet that has entrusted us with its precious heritage, ARGILETZ is respectful of the environment with the authenticity of its naturally sun-dried g reen Illite c lay. ARGILETZ also respects the ethics that govern its relations with commercial partners and consumers, from the most longstanding to the most recent.

GENEROSITY Over the years and with great determination, ARGILETZ has provided the means with which to evaluate the extent of the benefits of naturally sun-dried green Illite clay, passed on from generation to generation for us all to remain healthy in the long term.

OUR EARTH ARGILETZ loves clay, the real kind. The clay that soothes the aches and pains present in the body and spirit, the clay that cements bonds between people and traditions, the clay that opens up horizons in sharing and preserving nature, for a better individual and collective future within a multi-coloured world.

PINK CLAY

WHITE CLAY

Naturally rich in minerals, green clay is marvellous for all types of skin, particularly for oily skin. Used regularly, it creates a wonderful balancing effect, absorbs excess sebum, gently cleanses and stimulates natural defences, to give your face a look of renewed vigour.

This subtle combination of two very mild clays takes care of the most delicate skin with infinite gentleness. Both neutral and emollient, pink clay respects the skin’s pH and gently tones the pores to give skin a rare softness and natural glow.

White clay is completely neutral and respects all types of skin, even the most sensitive, while making it extremely soft. Thanks to its incredible ability to decongest and do away with dull, tired skin, it instantly brightens the complexion while deeply revitalizing.

YELLOW CLAY

RED CLAY

GHASSOUL

With a mineral composition close to that of green clay, yellow clay possesses all the most effective benefits to exfoliate and purify all types of skin, while giving c o m b i n a t i o n s k i n a ve r y s o f t texture.

As a natural source of minerals, red clay contains the natural resources to make your skin silky soft and reveal all its beauty. The secret is in the wealth of ferric oxides that brighten the complexion and give it a wonderfully replenished and healthy look.

Ghassoul is a clayey substance that is an essential part of the hygiene and beauty package of all women from the Maghreb, just like black soap and massage gloves. When mixed with water, it forms a smooth paste with absorbent, detergent and cleansing properties. These properties are perfect in caring for all types of skin and hair.
