So, what is Multani mitti? Why is it named after the city of Multan?
In the 18th century, a dollop of lime clay was extracted from the city of Multan, and the inhabitants were surprised by its amazing cleansing properties. Its popularity rose so high that it got recommended for cleansing and replenishing old monuments.
And now, several years later, multani mitti has become a part of every household, being used for a number of purposes – from cooling the skin to making it glow. This traditional skin care ingredient is rich in minerals, such as aluminium silicate, which offers high absorbing properties that leave the skin fresh and radiant.
