Will Body Wrapping help me lose weight ?
Will the Body Wrap get rid of Cellulite ?
Cellulite is a common problem among women. Those stubborn fat cells in the upper layers of the skin are difficult to get rid of. Cellulite is fluid retention in the connective fibers of the upper layers of the skin, along with an enlargement of individual fat cells. With poor circulation, this toxin accumulation and fluid retention are a major factor causing cellulite to develop. The body wrap process detoxifies the layers of the skin, tightens the pores, and increases circulation which reduces the appearance of cellulite.
What about for men, will it work on the belly and love handles ?
Yes, the body wrap formulas are designed to pull out toxins and impurities on all types of skin, men and women alike. While all of the formulas will work great on men, we now offer a Men’s Inch Loss Clay that is designed specifically for Men’s physiology to penetrate and reduce those trouble spots in men.

Spot treatments and Partial wraps are extremely popular among home users. You can wrap just the legs, buttocks, belly, arms or any area that you want to work on. Many of our kits that include only 6 compression wraps are designed for spot treatments.
Can I use the Clay on my double chin ?
The wrap works extremely well on the double chin area lifting and firming the flabby area under your chin as well as the jowl area.
How many times do I need to perform a body wrap to get results ?
Many people wrap only when they want to lose immediate inches and it is excellent for those special occasions and for immediate and quick results. To see even better results, a series of wraps is recommended.
The number of times you should wrap will depend on the amount of cellulite that has formed, the percent of body fat you are trying to reduce, your skin type.
We recommend that you wrap once or twice a week until you reach your goals. For detoxification purposes and to maintain the results, perform a body wrap once a month.
How much formula do I need?
Clays & Muds – it takes approximately 2-3 oz of clay or mud for a full body wrap if it is applied correctly in a thin layer. Many people tend to use a little more. For each 8oz jar, you should get 2-4 full body wraps. For each quart, you should get 10-16 wraps and for each gallon, up to 50 wraps. But remember, this is if you use the product correctly.
Dry Mineral – for full body wraps, 1/2 cup of dry mineral is mixed with 1 gallon of water, so 1 jar will give you 2 full wraps, 1 quart = 8 full wraps, 1 gallon = 32 full wraps. Note that if you are doing partial treatments, you can use less water and less formula yielding more wraps. And if you are a professional, you can perform multiple wraps with the same solution yielding many more wraps. Also note that some professionals may add up to 1 cup of mineral per gallon of water yielding less wraps per container.
Herbal/Aloe – 1/2 to 1 cup of solution is mixed with 1 gallon of water depending on the strength desired. Most professionals use less if wrapping over clay or mud and a full cup if using alone. So one 16 oz bottle yields 2-4 wraps, 1 quart yield 4-8 wraps, 1 gallon yeilds 16-32 wraps.

The permanence of it is the same as any other weight loss or skin care program. By continuing to take care of your skin, stick to a healthy diet and drink lots of water, the results will stick.
