Bentonite Clay has a lot of benefits for the skin:

  • It unclogs the skin pores and shrinks them
  • It aids in controlling the overproduction of sebum, which is a main cause of acne, whiteheads and blackheads.
  • Extracts and removes toxins such as heavy metals from the skin due its strong negative electrical charge
  • Contains Silica, a trace mineral which makes the skin soft
  • It removes dead skin, impurities and excessive oil, giving a definite glow to your face
  • Reduces inflammation, redness and acne scarring
  • It suits every skin type and has no side effects
  • It has healing properties which reduce fine lines and wrinkles while fighting bacteria and infection.
  • The clay contributes towards an even skin tone

Bentonite Clay has been used for centuries as a healing aid. It can be used as a supplement which is ingested as well, since it has a lot of trace elements. It is known as Multani Mitti in Pakistan.
