A natural clay with a fine, soft texture, Bentonite removes impurities on the skin, such as oils, bacteria, and toxins.
Bentonite clay’s adsorbent power may be helpful in treating acne breakouts and oily skin. The clay can help remove sebum, or oil, from the skin’s surface, and may also have a calming effect on inflamed breakouts. In addition, bentonite clay has been used to treat poison ivy rash and speed up healing following an allergic reaction.
Bentonite clay is formed from ancient volcanic ash that was once exposed to seawater, at which point it absorbed natural minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, and iron. The name comes from Fort Benton, Montana – the location of the largest known deposit of bentonite clay, but Bentonite clay comes from places all over the world.
We added this soft silky clay to organic butters and oils, then mixed it with farm fresh goat milk and essential oils to saponify and become a luxurious soap. The essential oils of peppermint and lavender add additional healing properties and a wonderful rich scent. Try our Healing Clay soap.
