Calcium Bentonite is composed of ash made from volcanoes. It is popularly known as “Healing clay” that cleanses and heals the body. Bentonite clay, also called Montmorillonite clay, is already becoming a wellness trend among people who are looking for detoxification.

Herb n’ Clay is combined with water and left to dry on the skin to be used as a clay mask. The clay binds to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within pores, and extracts them from pores. This helps to reduce the outbreak of blemishes, reduce redness and also fight certain allergic reactions.
It also has special ability to act as an antibiotic treatment. On skin, the clay can help to calm skin infections and speed up healing time of wounds or eczema. When used in bath, it leaves skin feeling smooth, hydrated, and less inflamed.
Skin serves as a medium to detoxify our body. To help this process Herb n’ Clay– Bentonite Clay – is used. Bentonite Clay has 100% negative ionic charge. Hence, like a magnet, it attracts positively charged ions – for example, viruses, bacteria, impurities, etc. The positive ions stick to the surface of the clay molecules (adsorbed) and drawn inside the clay molecules (absorbed). They are then removed from the body with clay. Herb n’ Clay has a 9.7 pH, which neutralizes and balances acidic conditions. To further assist body’s natural detoxifying procedure, Calcium Bentonite Clay is used for facials, full body wraps, and clay baths.
