Clay Detoxification

A natural and healthy choice

Clay Detoxification
Clay is a volcanic ash formed over thousands of years through weathering and hydrothermal processes. It is a marvelous cleansing and healing gift from our wonderful mother earth.

Clay detoxification has a long history of its known great absorptive and adsorptive properties. In addition, clay is rich in natural minerals that are essential for good health.

Popular clays are Fullers earth, Bentonite, Montmorillonite, Living Clay, Zeolite, Kaolin, and Pascalite, red and green Clay to name a few. They do vary in their compounds such as mineral content and their absorbtive potential depending on the origin (where they are mined).

So to say, Fuller's earth and Bentonite are just other names for Montmorillonite. These three are all calcium clays. Nevertheless, all of them do have great cleansing properties.
