Clay Is Much More Than A Mask?
Bentonite clay has been used in health and beauty rituals in many cultures for centuries. Known as “healing clay,” bentonite clay is popular not only as a clay mask but also for reducing rashes and calming bites, stings and even acne. There are so many healthful ways to use this amazing gift from the earth! Let’s explore just a few of the benefits of adding bentonite clay to your daily beauty regimen.
Made from minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, sodium, and magnesium formed from volcanic ash, bentonite clay can soothe and give relief to rashes, bites and small wounds on the skin by removing surface bacteria, not only relieving the sting but allowing an increase in oxygen and rejuvenation of the skin to take place. Simply form a paste by combining bentonite clay and water, and smooth on the irritated area until you feel relief - then rinse. It’s that simple!
Clay Cleans and Deodorizes
Say good-bye to commercial gels and soaps containing harsh additives, fragrances and chemicals, which can irritate skin and clog pores. Instead use clay to introduce health-supporting minerals, like potassium magnesium, silica, sodium & iron, to your skin (and hair!), leaving it clean and glowing.
Did you know a daily underarm bentonite clay pack can help keep odor away? It’s true! Bentonite clay detoxifies and supports the effectiveness of natural deodorants.

Clay to Reduce Acne
Clay has been used since ancient times to help cleanse and support the skin and is an effective, non-toxic way to get relief from acne for teens and adults alike. It is highly absorbent, which means it attaches to and removes excess oils from the skin, keeping pores clean and free of blackheads and blemishes. Clay absorbs excess oil, exfoliates old skin, tones collagen, cleans pores and removes bad bacteria and metals from old products in the skin. Read more about clay and acne here.
