Bentonite Clay is composed of ash made from volcanoes. In some cultures, bentonite clay is referred to as “healing clay,” due to its natural ability to cleanse the body. Bentonite clay benefits the detox process by drawing out harmful toxins and heavy metals from the body. It aids in binding toxic minerals, making them insoluble, so they can be more easily eliminated.
Topically Bentonite Clay has the ability to cleanse the skin, and can also help treat most skin conditions, breakouts, blemishes, rashes, and even skin infections, and poison ivy. This is also incredibly beneficial for children to cleanse and detox their skin and their little bodies, especially when there is any illness going around.
