Calcium Bentonite Clay is also known as Montmorillonite Clay is composed of aged volcanic ash that acts in a very unique way by using negative charge to attract impurities out from the skin. It contains calcium, magnesium, sodium & a small amount of many other minerals.
How does it work?
When the clay is wet it swells and draws impurities and dirt into it like a sponge (similar to how chia seeds swell and soak up and liquid around them).
Bentonite Clay Benefits:
Bentonite clay is a natural anti-aging facial mask that moisturizes dry skin, tames oily and sensitive skin, and is an effective detox that calms acne-prone skin and clears blackheads/blemishes. It’s also effective in managing common skin conditions like dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, cellulite, wrinkles, bug bites, and burns.
To be clear these are just some of the uses of bentonite clay – it has so many benefits it’s referred to as “healing clay” by many cultures around the world.
