Bentonite Clay is derived from naturally occurring volcanic ash sediments here in the US. When mixed with water, it becomes very slippery, almost gel-like. Good for all skin types, it is commonly used in shaving soaps to make the razor slippery to avoid cuts to the skin. It also makes an invigorating body or face mask. Bentonite has astringent properties which helps shrink enlarged pores due to the accumulation of oil and dirt in the skin. It provides gentle exfoliation which helps naturally cleanse and unclog pores. Bentonite is useful for treating problem skin, acne and poison ivy. When used in natural deodorants, nutrient-rich bentonite clay helps absorb sweat naturally. Clay gives soap a smooth silky lather. In hair care, bentonite clay draws out impurities, restores hair’s natural balance and helps remove product buildup on the hair and scalp.
