For some of us, volcanos are associated with science projects we did back in elementary school. With just baking soda, food coloring, and dish soap, we were able to charmingly recreate nature’s burning majestic death machines. However, now that there’s a growing trend in volcanic skin care products, our relationship with volcanoes just might transform entirely.
With the ever-evolving landscape of beauty technology, the minerals found in volcanoes may very well be the skin care of the future. Bentonite clay (which you might already be familiar with already if you’re a fan of Aztec clay masks) has many benefits for the skin. It removes impurities, brightens skin tone, and can help with acne. Well, bentonite is actually derived from aged volcanic ash. More and more skin care brands seem to be incorporating volcanic ingredients into their products, and it’s not too surprising.
After all, who doesn’t want their skin to be as powerful and alive as this catastrophic volcano?!
We figured why not take a look at some of the latest and most ~dangerous~ (don’t worry they are actually safe) skin care products on the market?!
We rounded up nine lava-inspired products out there, so you can become your own scientific experiment.
1The Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer from GlamGlow, $54
The volcanic minerals in this product are supposed to soak up oils, allowing skin to glisten without grease. Also, it contains the TEAOXI Complex (which has Cherry Tomato Leaf, Prickly Pear, and Vitamin B5), so your skin can be filled with power.
2The Lava Magik Cleanser Scrub/Mask from Better Skin, $24.96
This product is a volcanic 3-in-1 for your skin. Depending on how much water you mix it with, and how you apply it (instructions are naturally included) you can use this formula as a daily cleanser, a nice scrub, or a full-on mask treatment. It has French volcanic lava (so we know it’s fancy) and is enriched with calendula, sweet orange and grapeseed oils, parsley, chamomile and cucumber. Your face can transform into a garden of eden.
3Sonya Dakar Volcano Mask, $85
Skin care guru Sonya Dakar’s life-changing mask detoxes the skin and removes impurities, thus helping with acne breakouts.
