Our clay and buttermilk masks are called “Clay-Opatra” because the famously beautiful Egyptian Queen Cleopatra bathed in buttermilk daily to maintain her gorgeous skin. These buttermilk and clay masks will be your new favorite facecare routine!
Powdered Cultured Buttermilk
Buttermilk gives your skin a natural extra boost of beautifying proteins and AHA’s (alpha-hydroxy acids) to renew and nourish your skin from the outside-in.
AHA’s increase cellular turnover and encourage skin’s rejuvenation, making your skin act and appear more youthful.
The main AHA in buttermilk is a protein called Lactic Acid.
White Kaolin Clay
While a kaolin clay face mask isn’t ideal for dry skin, it may help those with oily skin and those who are acne-prone.
“Kaolin absorbs sebum and prevents pore clogging. It’s used to draw out impurities and toxins from the pores. [It then] clears the skin of excess oil, dirt, and pollution without causing any redness or irritation,” says Alessandra Caceres, a licensed aesthetician.
Because of its antibacterial properties, kaolin clay may be useful in treating acne, too.
The minerals in kaolin clay can remove oils, secretions, and contaminants from the skin. They serve as cleansing and refreshing agents by absorbing moisture and impurities and by reducing blemishes.
A 2012 study (Source) offered preliminary evidence that a healing clay facial mask can be an effective treatment for mild acne.
However, one 2012 study (Source) tested the effectiveness of topical clay application on collagen fibers in rat skin. The study showed that clay may increase collagen fibers, which may account for its benefits.

Skin elasticity, hydration and echogenicity of dermis can improve after 1 month of consistent topical collagen application. (Study Source)
Collagen is found in skin, hair, nails, tendons, cartilage, and bones. Collagen works to maintain skin elasticity, volume, and moisture. It also a building block to make up proteins such as keratin that form skin, hair, and nails.
Egg White Powder
For aging skin, egg whites can help tighten and firm instantly and even moreso overtime with consistent use.
If you have large pores or acne-prone skin, egg whites help close pores with its oil-pulling and tightening effects.
Similarly, if your skin is oily, egg whites can clarify pores and hair follicles that make too much sebum.
One of the benefits of an egg white face mask is its ability to increase skin hydration. The proteins in an egg white face mask may function as humectants. A humectant is a hygroscopic substance that has a molecular structure with several hydrophilic (water-loving) groups, such as hydroxyl groups (OH) and/or amine groups (NH2). Ovalbumin contains both OH and NH2 groups in its chemical structure, as do many of the other proteins found in the egg white. The OH and NH groups hydrogen bond with water, essentially “grabbing” it and holding it on the skin. Humectants slow water from evaporating and therefore keep the skin hydrated.
Another egg white face mask benefit is its antibacterial activity due to the protein lysozyme. Lysozyme has the ability to lyse (break down) the wall of certain Gram-positive bacteria. Propionibacterium acnes is the Gram-positive bacteria that causes acne. Specifically, blemishes form when pores become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Then, P. acnes accumulates and the pore becomes inflamed, thus leading to pimple formation. Since the lysozyme protein in egg white can destroy P. acnes, an egg white face mask could help to prevent the formation of blemishes. An egg white face mask can also help to absorb excess oil from the skin, which further helps to reduce the chances of pores becoming clogged.
If it can grow a chicken, think of what it can do for your skin with all of those amazing nutrients!
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)
Vitamin C works synergistically with the collagen ingredient above for a super anti-aging combination!
The antioxidant properties of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and its role in collagen synthesis make vitamin C a vital molecule for skin health. Topical ascorbic acid has beneficial effects on skin cells, and some studies have shown that vitamin C may help prevent and treat ultraviolet (UV)-induced photodamage.
Topical vitamin C is a science-backed, dermatologist-favorite ingredient that may help slow early skin aging, prevent sun damage, and improve the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, and acne.
Orange Essential Oil
Protects from damage: The high amount of limonene in orange essential oil helps protect your skin from damage inflicted by pollution, smoke, and sun rays.
Improves the appearance of pores: The oil has an astringent effect on the skin that helps tighten pores and regulate sebum levels.
Orange essential oil has proteins and is rich in certain types of minerals. It has a high amount of Vitamin C,Vitamin B-6, 2% of magnesium, 4% of vitamin A and 4% of calcium.
Lends a therapeutic scent: Used in aromatherapy, Orange Essential Oil’s pleasant scent has a cheerful and uplifting yet simultaneously relaxing, calming effect that helps reduce pulse rate. It can not only create a warm environment but can also stimulate the strength and resilience of the immune system and eliminate airborne bacteria.

This is for ALL products: To our current knowledge, we use all ingredients within the FDA (United States Food & Drug Administration) regulations. The safety factor of using any product depends on each individual’s medical condition(s) and sensitivities. Without consulting your medical practitioner prior to use, all consumers assume responsibility for any risks or health hazards from using a product for the manufacturer’s intended purposes. We never recommend allowing a product to be used outside of its intended purposes (i.e. ingesting a product created for external purposes only). We are not licensed healthcare providers: we cannot share medical advice or medically approve a product for any individual’s condition. We can only offer sales advice and we always advise a physician’s pre-approval before using any product.
All Perma-Earth products are only to be used as suggested or implied by their listing descriptions and informational tabs. It is the sole responsibility of the consumer to educate themselves on every product’s ingredients and proper usage before purchase and to seek medical advice from their healthcare provider before use.
If pregnant, nursing, planning to become pregnant, or will use a product on any dependent, please consult with your licensed healthcare provider before using any products. We do have products intended for babies and approved by our own personal pediatricians in our baby shop section. Even in these cases, we still advise a consultation with your personal healthcare provider before using any product on yourself or a dependent. Again, we are not responsible for individual reactions due to a medical condition, allergy, or special sensitivity. We advise everyone to use precaution with trying a product on themselves or a dependent.
Please note that at Perma-Earth LLC, we pride ourselves on being fully transparent with all of our ingredients, unlike many companies that hide other ingredients under one name or do not disclose the full ingredients list. All ingredients used in the amounts regulated by the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) are clearly listed in every product’s online electronic listing descriptions and tabs via our ecommerce website at perma-earth.com (which you are viewing now). Consumers take the full risk of using the products as-intended by seller (whether suggested or implied) upon purchase.
Furthermore, Perma-Earth LLC extensively tests their products in-house on their own limited personnel with their acknowledged consent. We do our absolute best to comply with the most up-to-date safety and usage requirements of each ingredient for the specific purposes of use or benefits intended from use. We also take great measures to maintain proper shelf-stability needs of the product to reduce or eliminate any possibility of microbial growth hazards derived from contamination during use or the natural environment within the specified use period from manufacture date. Please see each product’s expiration information contained in the online listing.
Any consumer may contact us to request more information about suggested uses, specific ingredients of concern used in current formulations, or other manufacturing contact points at any time from us before or after purchase. To which we will do our best to relay the most accurate information to account for public safety concerns without compromising copyrights.
ALL PRODUCTS ARE PRODUCED AND STORED IN THE SAME FACILITY, OFTEN USING THE SAME EQUIPMENT CLEANED BETWEEN EACH USE. We cannot fully guarantee that especially sensitive allergic conditions such as to egg or dairy or gluten or latex are not cross-contaminated at a microscopic level. Please keep in mind that the epidermal system is not the same as the digestive system – many digestive allergens such as lactose or gluten intolerance only affects the internal digestive system only if and when ingested – please see your doctor for clarifications with your specific needs before purchase or use. If one has any known topical allergies/sensitivities to any of a product’s stated ingredients, we advise NOT to purchase or use that product.
As stated prior, Perma-Earth takes all possible measures to pre-test every product on our own staff members and family members before offering a product for sale. Personal dissatisfactions or unique reactions experienced by consumers or their dependents are not the fault of the manufacturer (Perma-Earth LLC), as this is the consumer’s risk of responsibility to educate themselves on their unique sensitivities and to contact the company with any further questions.
For instance, if one has a rare reaction to a preservative, oil, or fragrance – this is a consumer’s sole risk of using the product being pre-informed of the product’s ingredients or description of use prior to purchase. One must also take into consideration the “inferred” use of an ingredient in another product that they have previously deemed safe for use… For instance, if one has no reaction to a “grapefruit scented with essential oils” product and yet has a reaction to an “grapefruit essential oil scented” product, that does not mean that only true grapefruit essential oil was used in the prior product, nor does this guarantee that one will not have a reaction to another grapefruit scented product, as everyone uses different ratios and sources. If one discovers a sensitivity to one of our ingredients, we suggest seeking medical advice and to contact us with as much detail as possible, including clear photographs for us to record and log. Please see our shop policies for further information of disclaimers and directions.
If any consumer has a unique sensitivity or reaction from using our products as intended (whether suggested or implied), please contact us for our records so that we may re-assess safety procedures and also consider changing the formulation if it does not impede with the original intent and purpose of the formula, or discontinue a product entirely. We record ALL reports of sensitivities and reactions for logging and review by the company periodically or on an as-needed basis to assess proper compensations and/or necessary changes to insure the safety and trust of our customers to the best of our abilities.
