Bentonite clay is made up of negatively charged ions, which when hydrated, work to draw out positively charged toxins from your skin. This purification also makes bentonite a gentle cleanser for skin and hair by naturally removing impurities and washing away dirt. In addition, bentonite swells when hydrated. Like a sponge absorbing water, bentonite works to absorb excess oils from your skin.
Cosmetic clays have a long history of skin care use, and because of the many benefits of bentonite(detoxifying, cleansing, purifying), Australian washed blue clay has a place in our line of natural skin care products
