Historically used to maintain healthy skin tone and texture due to its high content of trace minerals. Clays are a popular feature at many health spas today, and are widely used as a natural means to promote healthy, youthful-looking skin.
Our Calcium Bentonite is a mineral rich clay, formed from aged volcanic ash. One of the greatest properties of clay is its remarkable absorption / adsorption power. It has a unique way to attract impurities and toxins out the body. Simply put,clay has an electro negative charge, whilst impurities and toxins are electro positive. Our Bentonite is one of the purest natural skin detoxifier. It will gently exfoliate and penetrate deep into the skin to cleanse it of impurities.
Apply as a face mask, hair rinse, poultice , detox foot and bath soak.
Take about 1 teaspoon of the bentonite clay powder and about 1 teaspoon of water or apple cider vinegar and put it in a bowl or cup.Mix the two ingredients well, until it forms a paste consistency. You can add a little more water or a little more powder,to obtain a muddy consistency . Apply the bentonite clay mask to your face.
Leave the mask on for about 20 minutes. Rinse off the mask,using just water. You may have to gently scrub a little with your fingers to get it off. Put some good oil of your choice to re moisturize the skin after the mask ( apricot oil or almond oil)
