Calcium Bentonite clay 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).
Bentonites effect on the Skin
Bentonite clay is a natural anti-aging facial mask which moisturises dry skin, tames oily and sensitive skin and is an effective detox which 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.
Here is how to use Bentonite Clay as a Facial Mask:
- Add hot water to the clay and a few drops of argan oil or any other moisturiser.
- Apply the clay to your face making sure that you avoid the eye area.
- Leave on for 20-30 min while keeping the mask wet by patting it with wet hands.
- Remove the mask with a wet sponge or face cloth.
Will it Expire?
Bentonite Clay does not contain any ingredients that can expire – so it should last you a very long time.
Note: Calcium Bentonite Clay should be kept away from metal as the clay has the ability to absorb metals and will become less effective.
