Amazonian clay is collected from the banks of the Amazon river. According to Tarte Cosmetics, the river travels hundreds of miles, collecting highly nutritious plant and fruit material along the way, making Amazonian clay nutritious and beneficial to all skin types. Once the clay has been collected, it is baked in the sun and ground to a fine powder. This powder is then added to Tarte's cosmetic products. Amazonian clay is touted for its skin smoothing properties, as well as its ability to remove oil and shininess from the skin's surface and improve tone and texture.
