Bentonite clay is composed of ash taken from volcanoes, dried in the sun, and filtered. This powerful substance helps to expel toxins and heavy metals from the body. It has antibacterial properties and fights off various pathogens. It contains abundant minerals including calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, iron, and potassium. It is used to nourish skin and hair by balancing oil production, removing dead skin cells, clearing clogged pores, and fighting bacteria.
When combined with water it turns into a thick paste and can be used as a skin mask to reduce breakouts or to pull out toxins from affected areas. Bentonite clay can also be ingested.
