Bentonite Clay is often used in topical cosmetic products and pharmaceutical medications due to its absorption abilities. It has a particular molecule design that contains a negative ion that attracts positive ions in the body such as bacteria and fungus and draws them into the clay allowing the body to heal itself much quicker. When bentonite is used both internally and externally, it is effective for improving skin health. The clay is used in creams, compresses, and anti-‐irritant lotions. Bentonite is also commonly added to products such as mud packs, baby powders, sunburn cream and face lotions due to its healing properties.
