A mineral-rich natural clay, Bentonite is created by the alteration processes of volcanic ash when in contact with water. Its active constituent is Montmorillonite, a smectite clay mineral that displays remarkable hygroscopic and adsorption properties.
Our Bentonite Clay is an ultra-fine powder sourced through careful mining. It has been specially processed for enhanced purity and high performance in cosmetics and personal care. The premium quality of this clay contributes to its function as an excellent viscosifier, offering superior suspension, binding, and stabilizing benefits that elevate the appeal and aesthetics of formulations. The presence of Montmorillonite also allows it to display potent detoxifying abilities, binding to and drawing out toxins and impurities in the skin to facilitate their removal.
Appearance: Fine off-white powder.
Applications: Bentonite Clay is commonly used in the preparation of facial masks, mud masks, body wraps, moisturizers, deodorants, sunscreens, and makeup. Due to its swelling and colloidal properties, it adds thickness and body to emulsions while helping to disperse ingredients such as colorants. Added to water-based formulations, Bentonite Clay helps prevents watery or runny consistencies. It is also added to powder formulations to prevent cakiness or boost skin coverage (in the case of makeup). On its own, the clay can be used as a bath powder to soothe and rejuvenate the skin.
