Benefits Of Multani Mitti For Face

What is Multani Mitti

Mitti means mud or clay. Since the clay is believed to have originated in a place called Multan, it derives the name from a direct interpretation of “clay or mud from Multan.” Multani mitti, also known as Fuller’s earth, is a mineral-rich clay material that has long been used as a beauty ingredient. Originally used as an absorbent in the wool industry, multani mitti is now a staple ingredient in a lot of beauty and skin care products. It is an abundant source of minerals like magnesium, silica, quartz, calcium, iron, calcite, and dolomite.

The ingredient is popularly used as a remedy for acne and blemishes. However, a lot of people are unaware of how versatile multani mitti is when it comes to the benefits it offers for your face, skin, and health. Following is a list of the 14 different uses and benefits of multani mitti.
