Organic Bentonite Clay
Honest Skincare's Sodium Bentonite Clay is formed from volcanic ash that has been trapped for eons in sea beds in Australia. The clay is harvested, dried, milled and packaged with no chemicals used. Compliant to Food Standards Australia & NZ.
Bentonite clay has a strong negative electromagnetic charge, and when it’s activated by water, it works like a magnet in and on our bodies. It pulls the metals and toxins into itself, therefore pulling all sorts of impurities, and chemicals.
The truth is that not all clays are the same: some are indeed unfit for internal consumption. It’s absolutely crucial to source a high quality, pure clay, especially if you plan to ingest.
Before you start using bentonite clay it is important that it doesn’t come in touch with anything metal since it will reduce its effectiveness. Always mix bentonite clay using plastic, silicone, wood or glass.
1. Skin Issues (Eczema, Dermatitis, and Psoriasis)
Bentonite clay is a popular remedy for skin issues like eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis. When the clay is combined with water and then left on the specified area to dry, it binds the bacteria and toxins that are on the skin. This will assist in reducing any outbreaks of redness, blemishes, and allergens that might cause reactions.
2. Reduce Toxins During Bath Use
The binding effect also helps to pull impurities from your pores. The clay can be used as a soaking liquid when added to bath water. As well as enjoying the detoxifying effects, your skin will feel smoother, softer, and less inflamed than it did before your bath.
