This light gray powder is nothing more than an alkaline mixture of volcanic ash and water (pH of 8.3 to 9.1), and made up mostly of Silica (61%). The outside of the body can be cleansed by Bentonite. A Bentonite clay mask draws excess oils and debris to the surface of the skin, boosts circulation to tighten the skin and stimulate blood flow, and whisks away dead skin cells that can clog pores. You can add herbs and essential oils to soothe inflamed, painful skin and fight bacteria that inflame clogged pores into blemishes.

It has also been used to soothe various skin problems and as an ingredient in detox baths. A poultice of Bentonite clay can be prepared to calm eruptions such as acne as well as various skin irritations. Many types of itching can also be soothed by covering the area with a thick mud pack made of Bentonite clay and water. Apply and leave it on until it's dried and falling apart.

The recommended procedure to prepare a Bentonite clay bath is as follows: fill the tub to the desired depth. Add two to three ounces of Bentonite clay, mix, then soak in it for as long as you can. A poultice can be made by adding half a cup of clay to one and a half cups of water or until the desired consistency is reached. Mix it thoroughly and apply to the skin where needed.

One of our favorite ways to use Bentonite Clay is in a skin-purifying mask.

5 of 5 All around useful! March 8, 2017
Reviewer: Holley  
Purchased this to use in homemade toothpaste. Turns out you can use it for many things! The toothpaste is great and easy to make, leave a very clean feeling. I've also used it for a facial mask and love the smoothness it leaves afterwards. Great price and quality!! Can't wait to try new uses!

5 of 5 Great product, at a great price, without January 9, 2017
Reviewer: Virginia  
This clay is amazing! I mix it with water and some essential oils (carrot seed or lavender) to put on my adult acne. It works better and faster in healing skin eruptions than anything I've bought in the drugstore.

4 of 5 Great for stings and bites September 21, 2016
Reviewer: Frank & Christine  
My son has had some pretty strong reactions to stings, and just when I was desperate enough to go for the 'benedryl-type' relief, I remembered the clay. Very glad that I did. It really calmed down the swelling. And after 2-3 applications all was well.    My husband also gets bentonite clay at the local feed mill, for calves that are struggling to thrive or sick cows.
