Bentonite Clay is a combination of montmorillonite and volcanic ash. Bentonite Clay is a highly absorbent clay that pulls oils and toxins from the skin and is one of the best clays for making clay poultices. It is best suited for oily skin. Bentonite Clay is also a good clay for shaving soaps (use about 1 tablespoon per pound of soap) and for use as an oily hair and scalp treatment.
We presently offer two different Bentonite Clays for sale. Praan Naturals Bentonite Clay, #2 possesses a higher swell with greater water retention and more drawing capability. It, therefore, is more drying than this Bentonite Clay, #1.
