Bentonite Clay



Other Name(s):

Bentonite Clay; Calcium Bentonite; Montmorillonite Clay

Bentonite Clay occurs naturally in areas of volcanic activity. The clay is produced after magma is exposed over a long period of time to water. The clay is so named after Mount Benton in the United States where it was first discovered and occurs abundantly.

Is Bentonite Faithful to Nature?


Bentonite Clay is a natural ingredient with many skin purifying properties. It is abundant and its mining has not been shown to have a significant impact on groundwater quality, and responsible mines take care to minimise soil erosion.

Benefits: Why is Bentonite Used?

Detoxifying Agent

Bentonite Clay may help the body get rid of toxins and heavy metals.

Skin Cleanser

Bentonite Clay is highly absorbent, allowing it to pull impurities from deep within the pores, getting rid of excess oil and thus it may help to limit acne breakouts.


Bentonite Clay has an extremely fine, soft texture making it an ideal gentle exfoliator.

Gut Balancing

Bentonite clay may help with alleviating the symptoms of diarrhea if it has been caused by a virus.

Bentonite Clay can be found as a single ingredient item on store shelves but is used extensively in facial masks, polishing toothpastes, facial cleansers and gentle exfoliating rubs.

Raw Bentonite is pulled straight from deposits in the earth. After this, it’s taken to a processing facility where crushing and grinding machines pulverize the lumps into an extremely fine powder.

As of 2013, the United States of America is the world’s leading producer of bentonite with a total annual production of 4,350,000 metric tons. This is almost four times the amount produced by Turkey, the world’s second largest producer.
