Why You Should be using Bentonite Clay
Bentonite clay is named after where it is prominently found in Fort Benton, Wyoming. It is a naturally occurring powder compound that can also be found in volcanic ash. Studies have shown that Bentonite Clay has healing detoxification properties and can be used to improve health.
Acne breakouts and skin irritation can be caused by trapped germs, dirt and bacteria in pores. Using bentonite clay as a facial mask and body exfoliator can help rid your skin of trapped toxins and keep it looking and feeling clean.
To use: Mix 4 tablespoons of bentonite clay with 10 tablespoons of water to make a paste. Wash your hands then apply a thin layer to face. Leave for 15 minutes before rinsing with cool water. Reapply 3x a week for best results.
Natural Sun Protection
Extended, unprotected exposure to ultraviolet light can be hazardous to the skin and can lead to the formation of skin cancer and sunspots. This is why it is important to use skin protectant and sunscreens. But there is some concern over the safety of the ingredients in traditional sunscreen products.
A study released by Journal of Biomedical Physics & Engineering revealed that bentonite clay can be used as an effective skin protectant and protects the skin from harmful electromagnetic radiation caused by sun exposure.
Treat Allergic Skin Reactions
The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology published a study that showed bentonite clay was a promising treatment to treat allergic skin reactions caused by irritants such as poison ivy, poison oak and other allergens. It has also been shown to benefit those with skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
