Wrestling in the mud or spreading green clay?

23 Nov

Wrestling in the mud or spreading green clay?
Recently I started racing pumptracks, now I’m testing my balance and coordination doing tricks with my new skateboard …
You don’t make omelet without breaking eggs … I’m the egg … I get road rash, cuts and of course bruises … not good during the bermuda season in sunny Miami … I needed a solution … and I did found it with the green clay paste from the Clayers!

Let’s talk to Thibault (aka Tibs) the founder of the Clayers.
Who are you Tibs? How did you discover green clay?
I’m a professional skateboarder (@tibsparise) and I have been using the french green clay in France when I got injured. I healed up my knee, rashes and other wounds. I discovered it from a friend.
But since I’m in the USA, I couldn’t find this product I trust and love, so I decided to make it and share it.

What’s the green clay?
The French Green Clay is technically mud, but it is really rich in minerals and help the healing of injuries and skin issues. It’s natural and has been used for centuries, Cleopatra, soldiers, and more people have been using it.
French green clay is composed of different clays, illite, kaolin, montmorrillonite, bentonite and/or others.

Where is it coming from?
You can find green clay all around the World, but the one we use and have is from a volcanic area in France. It’s certified USDA Organic, it’s composed of 3 differents pure clay, which makes it unique and the purest in the world. Our clay is even scientifically proven. We have been picky on the choice of our ingredients, we care about quality.

How do you apply it?
The application is different as a cream, you have to apply a thick layer on the wound or skin condition, and let it dry. The more you apply, the more it absorbs and remove toxins. Just do not let it dry out on your face.

What can it heal?
It can heal inflammations, road rash, joint pain, bruises, sore muscle and more, also skin condition like acne, eczema, psoriasis, sunburns and burns.

What are the range of products available?
Right now we have

  • the Classic Clayer ready to use paste that you can use on everything we said above, it’s composed of our high quality French Green Clay and Alkaline water from Carlsbad California (6floz for $24)
  • the French Green Clay powder (20oz for $49)is available for your DIY facemask or poultice.

Thanks Tibs, this clay seems very interesting.
Actually, I’ve been testing it for some weeks now and I love it!
The great thing about the green clay is that it works too if you don’t skate … sprain ankle, tired muscles, … it will work miracles for anyone.
Do I like it? Yes!
Because it’s organic, because it’s easy to use and because it works!

Thanksgiving is around the corner and our friends from the Clayers are offering 40% OFF for Black Friday Week!

Chasing the tiger nuts in Paris

3 Dec

La Noix Tigree goes to Paris!
Great news for those of us living in Paris, the tiger nuts comes to town!!!

You already know everything about the tiger nuts right?

Let’s give you a quick tour just to be sure you have the basics.
The tiger nut grows in the ground and looks like weird little nuts.
They are usually pressed and drunk in Valencia, Spain and it’s then called Horchata de Chufa.

Celine, the owner and founder of La Noix Tigree, decided it was time for Celine, owner and founder of La Noix TigreeParis to wake up at the sound of this delicious and healthy nut (root)!

We met Celine and had an interesting and healthy chat about this healthy nut which is not even a nut!

1/ How did you discover the tiger nuts?
I was living in Montpellier as a teenager and I’ve been to Barcelona from time to time where I discovered the spanished valencian version of the tiger nut milk called Horchata de Chufa . Since then I’ve been trying to find it in France.

2/ Why the tiger nuts? 
They are so good and so healthy at the same time. I don’t understand why we can’t find them more easily here!

They are also called earth almonds, which explains a lot of their aspects: the taste goes between almond and chestnut, ther skin is thicker than the almond’s and you can eat the whole root.

Actually tiger nuts are not nuts, they are tubers like potatoes!

3/ Describe us the process of production? 
Like an almond milk I soak the tiger nuts, then I mix them with mineral water and I filter them.

That is for the plain flavor that I am using as a basis for all the other flavors.

Then depending on the flavor, I can add cold pressed fresh fruit juices (for the carott & ginger for instance) or powder (for the Matcha version).

Everything is cold except the Chai tea for which I infuse the tea separately in hot water and I make it cooler before adding it to the plain version.

You are going for cold pressed, why?  What are the benefits of cold press? 
La Noix Tigrée drinks are cold pressed and handmade because tiger nut milk is delicate and quite unstable while you heat it. There is no hot process yet that can keep the flavor and the quality of the milk.

The cold pressed process keeps all the nutriments that will benefit to your health.

4/ Can you introduce us to your products?
La Noix Tigrée (pronounced La Noa Teagrey) products are a wide range of organic sugar free tiger nut milk drinks which goes from plain to Golden milk – Curcuma flavor.

Tiger nut is the root of the Cyperus Esculentus plant that grows in south of Spain and west Africa.

It is well appreciated for its fibers, unsaturated fat, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, iron, vitamin E contents

All the ingredients are organic and I don’t add any sugar or dates, the tiger nut I am using is naturally sweetened.

The drinks are raw and healthy, very good for people who are dairy intolerant and their fibers make them very easy to digest.

I love drinking it before and after practising sport because it gives me a lot of energy without giving me the impression that I am heavy. And it lasts because there is no sugar added. It’s a good way to rehydrate yourself. The Baobab version will bring extra calcium and vitamin C, the spirulina version will bring extra vegetable proteins…Everybody can find a flavor that suits him!

5/ Where can we find you?
Now on La Noix Tigrée facebook page or La Noix Tigrée on Instagram.

Very soon, I’ll open an e-shop and La Noix Tigrée will be available at different partners boutiques in Paris like detox restaurants, fitness studios, …

I am starting with Paris and I have the project to deliver the whole France very soon!

Celine organises tiger nuts tastings in Paris. If you want your colleagues, friends, customers to discover tiger nuts don’t hesitate to contact Céline.
