 "Burn," in another context, refers to an inflammatory or hypersensitivity reaction of the skin to a potentially harmful substance. Technically, clay masks are not designed to cause any burn on the skin surface.

However, clay masks may be found to cause burns if the product used is not suitable for the individual's skin type.

Another reason clay masks may be found to cause burn is that it contains ingredients such as kaolin, bentonite, sulfur, and retinoid, which have been found to cause hypersensitivity to sensitive skin types when the product type does not suit the skin type.
