  • Bentonite clay produces an electrical charge when hydrated, which gives it toxin-absorbing properties.
  • Clay swells when mixed with water to form porous “sponge”-like substance.
  • Helps with skin allergies, acne, eczema and psoriasis.
  • Absorbs heavy metals, chemicals and toxins.
  • Helps with diarrhoea and other digestive issues like acid reflux, constipation, bloating and gas.

Please Note: Always use a plastic or wooden spoon when handling bentonite clay; contact with metal will neutralise the clay's beneficial properties.

Product of Texas, USA; packaged in South Africa.


  • Take within an hour of eating for best results.
  • Take 2 hours after medication and supplements as it may alter their effects.

Detox your system: Mix 1-2 teaspoons of clay with 8 ounces of water. Drink mixture and follow with another 8 ounces of water. Add fibre to help it move through the digestive tract.

Rather under rated product, great as a soak and face mask.

Been using this together with zeolite to detox and I have to say the mixing is a bit difficult... Will keep using for a while though.

Used it also as a paste (mask) on my skin and will be using it like this again over the weekend.... I think it may helping to draw arthritis impurities and acid too

This product is magical. I've used it on eczema and insect bites. It relieves itching immediately and is also really good for scars

Product helps with my acne scarring and breakouts.

I took it last night for the first time and usually when I wake up, I feel like sleeping another 8 hours. I was fully awake and focused this morning after one dose. Will definitely recommend.

Used it as a facemask for acne and acne scarring - no change in acne scarring yet but it's only been a week! Skin feels softer and breakouts seem to have improved - will continue use. Make sure to only use a small amount of the clay on your face so it has time to dry - I used wayyyyy too much the first time! Also moisturise after!

I used it as a face mask for acne and did see a difference. Works well

Non-irritating, but dries my skin out when used as a mask.
26/09/2018, By Natasha
Very uncomfortable mixing it using it as a face mask. I also have very sensitive skin and as soon as it starts drying my skin gets super itchy and I remove it quickly, BUT my skin feels amazingly smooth afterwards so I would definitely recommend.

Used it in my bath and left my very itchy skin relieved! As a face mask I found it difficult to mix but will try with coconut oil! My skin feels soft and fresh.
09/08/2018, By Phatli
I use this as a face mask mix with my favorite oils and it helps with allergies.It take of my itchy skin.
26/06/2018, By Rene
Great value for money! I use it as a face mask - it's something to get used to (INCREDIBLY tight and itchy), but leaves my skin feeling super soft and cleansed.
05/06/2018, By Getruida
I use this clay as a mask once a week along with the african black soap. Keeps my skin clear and fresh!

Excellent nourishing detoxifier. Just a bit of a mess to get onto hair and face.
12/03/2018, By Jah
Very nice as both a face mask and a hair mask. As a face mask, I usually add other natural ingredients such as turmeric, lavender etc. but it definitely works well on its own as well. I especially like it in summer because it takes care of excess sebum on my face.
07/03/2018, By Christine
Really useful and versatile product. Helps with skin allergies
27/02/2018, By Virginia
This is great to make face masks with, leaves the skin feeling fresh. Skin condition is noticeably improved after use. And it lasts because there is so much clay powder!
15/02/2018, By Franke
Made a great facemask with the bentonite clay, honey and ACV. Applied easily and left my skin feeling really soft and clean. Only reason for giving 4 and not 5 stars, is that you mess lots of powder when opening the container.

Heals my face in a day,extremely good product a definite keeper in my household.
07/11/2017, By Zakho
It tastes yummy and feels even better on hair, face and body!

Good for humans and good for pets

Nauticas range never ceases to impress me ! love their range, this clay is amazeballs!! lets not forget the awesome price !
31/08/2017, By Anel
Works as a great face mask. I also add it to your bath for great detoxifying bath.
11/08/2017, By Lindsey
I remember trying to use this to clear my eczema and it never worked. Such a pity. It is good as a face mask but it is very hard to mix with anything.
01/08/2017, By Linda
I use it in a smoothie to draw impurities from my system. Can also be used in home made toothpaste,to help whiten the teeth. This clay has so many uses, just check online.
04/07/2017, By Heather
Works excellent at detoxing your face. I've been adding both honey (so it doesn't dry me out) and ACV. I still have to muster up the courage to use it fr my insides.
27/06/2017, By Brenda
Using this as a face mask and my skin definitely feels smoother after use. It is a little difficult to make into a paste but do feel it is worth the hassle.
09/06/2017, By Lisa
This is just too messy and difficult to work with. Can't really feel any difference from using it.
03/06/2017, By Jo H
This worked really well with huge mosquito bites that were driving me insane, really relieved the itching. Used it as a face mask and it felt good but the next time it irritated my skin badly. Will keep using for insect bites etc though. A bit hard to mix into a paste without lumps.
25/05/2017, By Malikah
I do a weekly ritual of using this lovely product as a face mask. After using it, my skin feels so soft and smooth! My mom likes to drink it as a detox cleanse from the inside-out.

In stead of running to the vet for diarrhea meds /antibiotics give your doggies some bentonite clay mixed with water in a syringe, sets the tummies within a day.
09/05/2017, By Anisha
This has to be one of my most favourite discoveries. I mix the clay powder with Braggs Apple cider vinegar as a mask for my face and for the eczema on my legs. It works wonders. It makes the skin so silky and clears it of any blemishes. It also soothes the itchiness of the eczema giving much relief. I will definitely recommend this brand.
26/07/2016, By Antoinette
Tip: mix this with some water in the tip of a plastic baggie until smooth, then squueze out and apply! I use this mask twice a week and just love what it does to my skin! Recommended!
07/06/2016, By Christina MmaTeboho
Perfect! My teeth have never been so cleaner. i really love this clay.
27/04/2016, By Cheri
Im not sure what I am doing wrong, but this stuff does not dissolve - in anything. I tried it in the bath, in a glass of water mixed with honey and or coconut oil. All you get is a mess really - nothing sticks to the side of your bath quite like this stuff!! Saying that though - once you get some kind of emulsion with the coconut oil - it works very well as a mask for acne! It dries them right up.
29/03/2016, By Shari
This is an amazing product. I used it on my face as a mask and my skin was left soft and cleansed and drank it for a severe pain I was experiencing in my lower left abdomen and it worked 100% to detoxify my system and ease the pain. I even tried it on my mums cats to help them with runny tummys they were having and it stopped it and hard no harmful effect on them. My mum was so happy this product I had to give her my clay and purchase another one for myself. Would recommend this product to anyone to buy.

This works beautifully on the skin. I leave it for a bit to blend properly when mixing it with water, and works fine. Ive noticed less blemishes, smaller pores, and beautiful looking skin. Also the foot soak works wonderfully. Ive even used some on a fever blister, and it helped dry it out and heal it up in about 3 days, which is a record! Its one of my must-buys! :)
10/03/2016, By Karyn
Despite some reviews ive read, i did not have any bad reactions to the face mask i made from this clay. I am so chuffed with it! I mixed in a few drops of tea tree oil (i have acne) and left it on my face for about an hour till it hardened- and OH boy does it harden! A gentle wash later and my skin felt so good. Worth every cent, a little goes a long way
25/02/2016, By Jacqueline
I love this! I like putting on a mask if my face looks a little spotty, or putting some on an ingrown hair.. Works just great.. Thank you so much
12/02/2016, By Michelle
This stuff tastes vile! Lol and its quite difficult to mix. My sister and I are both obsessed with this clay, and what we do it we put it in an old har with plastic lid with some water and shake it until its smooth; easiest way! This stuff really works Will buy again thanx
11/02/2016, By Rita
The Nautica Bentonite Healing Clay, coconut oil and peppermint oil work well together as a toothpaste.
02/02/2016, By Idah
Tried this on my 4c hair and my coils are nicely defined. I used it with apple cider vinegar, olive oil and will have to purchase more of this. It works for the skin as well, love and loving it. Xxx
17/01/2016, By Jan
Used this for 10 days together with a psyllium husk fiber product as a cleanse and it did a great job. It was vile to get down though and I am not finicky normally. A case of mind over matter.
10/09/2015, By Shaazia
This is by far my favourite product.. I have a whole list of skin problems so when I switched to natural this was the 1st product I tried and will continue to use as it soothes and calms any pimples that I have..also noticed a marked improvement in my blackheads and doesn irritate my super sensitive skin at all..
17/07/2015, By Lauren D
This stuff is fabulous. It is initially tricky to use, but I searched on making a mask and found this great tip: Use a small wooden spoon to mix some up with water in a small zip-lock bag with a small, let it stand a little while to absorb in properly, and then knead it smooth in the bag. You should make it into a fairly thin texture, like thin yoghurt, and then apply thinly with something like a foundation brush. It then goes on smoothly, dries in 15mins, and washes off easily. Ive heard you can also mix with plain yoghurt instead of water.

I love this stuff. I have oily, sensitive and problematic skin. This leaves my skin firm and smooth, and my spots have cleared up beautifully, and my pores appear finer. I use it 2-3 times a week, and follow up with a hydrating mask. I will not let myself run out of this. Its also great value for money.
07/07/2015, By Anushka
What a lovely mask this makes. I felt the firmness of my skin as soon as I washed it off. It makes a lovely once a week treat mask and allows for some always needed me-time:)
28/05/2015, By Magda
Awesome versatile product! My dog had a festering sore between his toes - the ointment I got from the Vet did not help and the dog was in agony. I made a paste of bentonite clay and put a blob between the toes. Within seconds he experienced relief and within two days the sore had dried up and healed quickly thereafter. Later I used it with the same success on his tail when it was nicked and he started chewing it. Great face mask too!

This amazing product is a versatile miracle.
It can be used in any way shape and form. It works perfectly as a facial mask, leaving skin radiant and soft to the touch.
Add it to your bath for a relaxing soak after a hard work week.

This definitely works on acne!
08/03/2015, By Thato
Ive stopped using toothpaste and use this as my earthpaste instead. I love it!!! I might be dreaming but my teeth are whiter and brighter since using this as a toothpaste instead of the industrial junk.

All I do take several spoonfuls and pour water and let it sit for 24 hrs. Thats about enough earthpaste for a few weeks for me. You can be creative and add lemon and whatever other natural flavourants to give it an extra kick but its fine just as it is for me.

Oh... You can also use this for great face masks too
16/02/2015, By Vee
This product is not bad but its not so effective. not life changing at all. using eggs or an avocado as a mask is way better then buying this product.
27/01/2015, By Crystal
I believe this products works well as a facial mask and my skin did improve. Just bare in mind its not as easy to mix as it claims.
20/01/2015, By Yasmeen
I have had acne since hitting puberty, and have always suffered with breakouts. I started using this product and I have found a significant decrease in breakouts. My skin is so much softer,and looks healthier. The scars and pigmentation have begun to get lighter. My face looks a lot better, and I am more confident. Wish I had discovered it years ago. I have been using it as a face mask for two weeks to date.

Im suffering from candida, and I tried many supplements but none worked so fast as bentonite clay. After one week my head started to become clearer and Im feeling way better. Im going to keep using it for a month as a cleanse. Im planning on trying diatomaceous earth to help kill off the yeast.
11/11/2014, By Mia
I love this product, makes my skin feel smooth and soft, i still have a little redness but much better than before :) also, you only need a very little at a time so it lasts!
30/10/2014, By Jo
Amazing product, it cleared up my acne breakout with only 2 applications over 3 days. Applied as a face mask, and washed off as soon as it was dry. Amazing results and highly recommended!
18/09/2014, By Bridgitte potton
Used Bentonite Clay as a hair mask and have seen a real difference - gives the hair a thorough ‘detox’, removing build up and dirt. My hair is full and shiny for the first time in ages. I also use it to bath with when I feel I need a detox. The first time I bathed with it I was unprepared for the full effect ... I had a whopping headache the next day. So a warning ... drink lots of water and help your body out with light/healthy food and something like dandelion tea/milk thistle when you do!
08/08/2014, By Emily
My friends and I LOVE the Bentonite clay! Amazing! :)
30/05/2014, By TAMMY
What a great face mask this makes! My face looked radiant and clear after just one application. I add it to my bath for a heavenly detox session. Great product and great price!
28/05/2014, By Amber
I am so glad I tried this product! My face has cleared up from having acne to having hardly any spots in just two weeks, if I add some to my bath water my skin feels super soft and silly afterwards! Fantastic!
20/01/2014, By Gerda
The Nautica Bentonite Healing Clay was great for detoxing, feeling alot better after using it for 3 days in a row
15/01/2014, By Carla
I LOVE this product! We bath in it (makes your skin silky smooth), drink it (when your tummy is upset) and even put it on any itches (Either from insect bites or skin irriations) - thats why I say its a miracule cure and would recommend it to anyone...
