Replenish Skin and Body with Sodium Bentonite Clay
What many people don't know is that volcanic ash, particularly in the
form of a clay known as Sodium Bentonite Clay or Volcanic Ash Clay,
provides a multitude of health and beauty benefits as well. Because of
its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-yeast and general disinfectant
qualities, Polynesians, Melanesians and many other cultures have
utilized volcanic ash for centuries to treat a wide variety of infections and ailments. Recently, buzz about these health benefits has begun to spread like lava itself.
What is Sodium Bentonite Clay?
Sodium Bentonite is aluminum, phyllosilicate clay that is highly
absorbent and generally impure. It's formed when weathered volcanic ash
mixes with water resulting in a mineral-rich clay that consists mostly
of montmorillonite .
Health and Beauty Benefits
The very first evidence of the therapeutic use of Sodium Bentonite
Clay was discovered to have occurred around 2500 B.C. in Mesopotamia.
From then on, use of the clay has been attributed to North American
Indians, the ancient tribes of central Africa, and even Mahatma
Gandhi-all of whom valued the clay for its extensive use in healthcare
and beauty regimens. Cleopatra and other historic women known for their
extraordinary beauty regularly used Volcanic Ash Clay as a significant
part of their daily beauty routines.
Topically, the clay
exfoliates and firms, resulting in visibly revitalized skin and a
youthful complexion. It has the added benefit of working to draw deeply
embedded impurities and toxins out of the skin's pores. Additionally,
Sodium Bentonite Clay has remarkable cleansing properties that work in
conjunction with its high rate of absorption to provide effective
solutions for acne, cellulite, sun damage, stretch marks, wrinkles,
blemishes, and much more.
How Does it Work?
Sodium Bentonite Clay unique and effective is that it carries a negative
charge while toxins carry a positive charge. The clay's surface is made
up of many microscopic platelets that are 1 to 2 microns in size. Each
of these platelets has a negative electrical attraction for impurities
and toxins that are positively charged. When applied, the clay works
like a magnet, drawing positively charged toxins to its surface and
holding them there. When the clay is removed, it takes with it the
impurities and toxins that once thrived inside the skin.
Volcanic ash is high in Sulphur, an active Mineral ingredient which not
only helps the body to resist bacteria but actually destroy it. Sulfur
in Volcanic Ash is a proven, safe, age-old remedy used for centuries in
treating a wide variety of skin irritations and skin infections.
