Why Bentonite for Healthy Skin?
Bentonite Clay is a naturally occurring clay that forms after volcanic ash ages. It is known to draw out toxins from the skin due to its negative ion charge that attracts positive ions and acts as a magnet to draw out toxins and heavy metals. Bentonite clay is a wonder ingredient for skin as for the inside of our bodies. It is super rich in astringent properties to detoxify the skin and unclog pores. Bentonite is thought to be helpful for minimizing blemishes, blackheads, uneven skin tone and age spots to reveal a healthier younger skin. Studies have shown that bentonite “acts efficiently in healing skin lesions and ulcers”. For a long time, bentonite was used on the skin as a natural remedy for many skin concerns including dermatitis and shielding the skin from environmental exposure such as UV rays.
“Ten billion tons of bentonite are mined worldwide each year with about 35% produced in the western United States (primarily Wyoming)”. Our calcium bentonite clay is locally sourced from the mountainous Wyoming region and mined directly from the earth. It’s very pure and filled with essential minerals including calcium, magnesium and iron.
