What Is Calcium Bentonite Clay?
Bentonite clay is a powerful healing clay, it is unique as it has the ability the produce an electrical charge when it comes into contact with water, it is this electrical charge that gives it a superior edge in absorbing toxins and impurities including heavy metals and chemicals.

Because bentonite clay is great at drawing out impurities and toxins it is great to use topically and as a detox.

Bentonite clay can also be used to reduce redness for psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis by binding the bacteria and toxins and removing from the pores.
