Bentonite Clay Mask and Bath Powder
Clay = the #1 ingredient when it comes to detoxing your body.
There’s no better way to improve your health and detox than getting dirty in the great outdoors. If your adult lifestyle doesn’t allow you to do this then you may want to make a lifestyle modification and/or start using bentonite clay capsules. Clay is a one-of-a-kind detoxification ingredient and acts like a magnet to heavy metals, dangerous microbes, and toxins. Our bodies are naturally equipped with the ability to detoxify ourselves and clay supplements are the only natural ingredients that are known to enhance the detoxification process. - If you have used an activated charcoal face mask then you have already felt the benefits of clay.
Detoxification is Bentonite clay’s most popular benefit, but outside of improving our body’s ability to detoxify, bentonite clay is rich in minerals such as calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, potassium, and iron. A high-quality clay should have a cream or grey tint and be odorless.

Using clay for wellness purposes may sound a little weird at first, but humans have been using clay for medicinal and wellness benefits since the beginning of human civilizations. Clay is an old-school technique that is now being validated by science. Clay therapy is a serious wellness trend that can help reduce the toxic build-up that is caused by environmental toxins. Clay particles detoxify the body by using their negative electrical charge to attract and absorb our body’s positively charged toxins. This is one of those situations where a negative actually becomes a positive. There is no other substance on Earth that can lay claim to the detoxification properties of clay.
What is Bentonite Clay?
It turns out that the same clay that is in our soils and that we use to make artisan dishware can also provide some serious wellness benefits. Bentonite clay is found all over the world, is sustainable, is created from ancient volcanic ash, and is aged in deep water sea beds. It is one of the most popular ancient healing remedies that is backed by science. It is important to note that not all clay will provide wellness benefits and there can be variances in quality.
Bentonite clay is made up of fine particle sizes and when water is added it can form a paste that is great for face mask and skincare applications. Humans have been treating their skin with bentonite clay for thousands of years and many of the top natural spas will have bentonite clay services for their clients. Bentonite clay is also added to foods and smoothies to detoxify the body and promote a healthy gut microbiome and digestive tract. For our science geeks, the detoxification process occurs largely because toxic materials, microbes, and dirt are attracted to the clay molecules and ions. This detoxification process is believed to occur both on our skin and in our guts.
Bentonite clay has been used by nearly every successful human civilization in history and we believe every personal care routine should have some clay in it. Early topical applications may have been discovered after our ancestors accidentally found that slipping on wet mud and rolling around helped to relieve bug bites and infections.
Humans just have a fascination with clay-type substances. It's hard-wired into us and it starts at an early age when we’re drawn to it. During our childhood, we played with clay-like substances in the mud, at art class, and with play-doh (not really clay), but little did we know, having a relationship with clay can make the world a healthier place. Clays are also the key source of beneficial minerals, nutrients, microbes in soils. What is good for us is also good for plants and fungi.
Bentonite Clay Skin Benefits
Beauty and wellness experts love bentonite clay for a wide variety of reasons, but the biggest is because it has the ability to absorb excess oil, dangerous microbes, dirt and dead skin cells. Similar to CBD, bentonite clay is great for oily skin and can actually remove the excess oil that is produced by sebum glands. These oil reduction properties make it a great natural choice for calming angry skin breakouts. Our bentonite clay powder is specifically formulated for topical applications and can be used all over the body.
For glowing results, customers should consume oral capsules of bentonite clay to detoxify their digestive tract and use clay masks and creams to directly detox their skin. A good skincare routine requires more than just topicals and moisturizers. We believe in encouraging healthy skin by removing toxins from your microbial communities and boosting collagen production with all-natural clay.
Natural Poison Ivy Relief: Poison ivy and poison oak are the most common reasons for allergic skin inflammation in North America. Being allergic to poison ivy can dampen your love for the great outdoors, but it doesn’t have to be this way. A 1995 study found that bentonite clay could reduce rash and speed up the recovery process. When your skin or clothes come into contact with poison ivy plants the irritant urushiol oil is released. Urushiol oil is what causes the allergic reaction and to prevent or minimize a negative reaction you must take immediate action to wash the affected area with soap, water, and a washcloth. The washcloth and soap are essential as urushiol is like bacon fat, coconut oil, or motor oil. Once it gets on your hands and clothes it's there to stay. Soap and washcloths are needed to fully remove the oil from your skin and clothes should be cleaned immediately. Once the affected area has been thoroughly washed you can use bentonite clay paste to cover the entire area and cover it with a breathable bandage.
How to use: To create a clay face or body mask take one teaspoon of powder in your hand and apply droplets of water until you get the desired paste. Once the paste is created apply to the topical location and allow it to harden for 15-30 minutes. After the treatment rinse with gentle soap and a washcloth. A pro tip is to use full-spectrum hemp oil, apple cider vinegar or witch hazel in replace water. Bentonite clay can be used directly on our skin, but customers have also created clay baths with Epsom salts and brushed their teeth with clay. How do you use it?
Side Effects: Bentonite has an extremely low risk of side effects when used responsibly. People with a health condition should talk with their healthcare professionals prior to using clay as a natural remedy. Bentonite supplements are approved for children over the age of 12. Furthermore, clay use or supplementation doesn’t affect our body's ability to absorb healthy minerals and vitamins.
