Bentonite Clay

Bentonite is one of most popular clays and comes from naturally occurring volcanic ash sediments here in the United States. Bentonite clay has been traditionally used to assist in mineral deficiencies, and to help bind toxins making them more soluble. Bentonite can be used externally as a clay poultice, mud pack, or in skin care formulations.


The Bentonite Clay we offer is a Sodium Bentonite, which is quarry mined from naturally occurring deposits and is untreated. Bentonite clay is sedimentary clay composed of weathered and aged volcanic ash. Our Bentonite is NSF certified and manufactured to ANSI/NSF 60 standards. Bentonite is usually mined from deposits that can range anywhere from 100 feet to several thousand feet. After being mined from the earth, it is brought out into the sun to remove excess moisture and make it easier to work with. After the initial drying it gets processed (ground) with huge hydraulic crushers, and it then goes through the final process of micronization, or “fine granulating.”

Bentonite is a swelling clay. When it becomes mixed with water it rapidly swells open like a highly porous sponge. Our Bentonite Clay is sold for cosmetic and personal care formulations and external use only.
