Bentonite Clay, a combination of montmorillonite and volcanic ash, is a highly absorbent clay that has been aged in prehistoric seabeds which is how it absorbed all of its minerals. Bentonite clay is known for absorbing dirt and oil from the skin. It helps to purify and rejuvenate pores as well as help with acne, blemishes, burns and cuts. We recommend this clay for all skin types, but can be especially beneficial for those with oily skin.
For best results use a wooden or plastic spoon mix 1 tsp of clay with 1 tsp of water, rosewater or your liquid of choice in a plastic, glass or ceramic bowl until it creates a paste, not too thick or too thin. Use a brush or clean fingers to evenly distribute onto your face. Leave on for 5-8 minutes not allowing the clay to fully dry on your face. It shouldn’t be hard or painful to move the muscles in your face. With a washcloth use cold or warm (not hot) water to remove the clay using a circular motion. Pat dry and follow with a toner and moisturizer.
Pregnant or lactating people, or those with known medical conditions should consult with a physician prior to using product.
How to store: Always use glass, wood or plastic when storing natural clays, never allowing it to touch metal since clays will absorb the metals and become less effective. Keep in a cool, dry place.
