The use of Bentonite on Skincare Products

Bentonite is a natural clay with a fine and soft texture which becomes a paste when mixed with water, and lateral sample surfaces have a distinctive soapy feel. Its variations lie on different parts of the colour spectrum, as at some points it is light-grey hued, whereas in other it tends to be oriented to a dark yellow colour. Its way of formation is very unique and it takes a lot of time too, as it’s resulted by the chemical alteration of volcanic ash along with the presence of water reserves such as lakes. Such an extraordinary volcanic setting has been shaped and perfected by the spreading of tectonic plates that take place on the East African Rift. Deposits can be found in Afar in both Northern and Southern Ethiopia too. Beart & Gibson Group, a British company with a unique international activity since 1997, is now the Exclusive Distributor for the international market of Bentonite Clay of “Afar Bentonite“, an Ethiopian mining Company. Another aspiration of this partnership is to share this rare product with the world, and that’s thanks to the wide range of benefits that it offers, some of which are listed below:

Being an ancient and natural remedy, it holds promise as a treatment for different health conditions and there’s a relatively low probability of side effects after a person consumes it moderately. Nevertheless, we highly recommend that the people with certain health conditions should consult their doctor before using it, in order to be completely sure that it is safe for them.

1. Body Detox: By mixing 1 teaspoon of Bentonite clay with around 200ml (standard glass size) of purified water and drink once per day, it can be ingested by people with the aim of getting rid of the toxins from the body. It might also lead to reduction of cholesterol in your body, which we all know how bad it can be for our heart and our health generally. It’s suggested to consume Bentonite clay at least 2 hours before or after taking any other possible medications, as given its strong efficacy, it can adsorb other molecules, and may lead to some medications’ effectiveness reductions.

2. Weight Loss Support: Bentonite clay is also considered a helpful supplement for people who try to lose weight. Since it can stick to toxins, it may be handy when it comes to regulating a person’s digestive tract. A reliable source’s study has suggested that the clay can actually help most of the people who have irritable bowel syndrome with constipation. This use deserves more research, but the results so far show great promise.

3. Treating oily skin and acne: Along with its strong adsorbent power, Bentonite clay might actually be quite helpful in treating acne breakouts on oily skin too. It’s very likely that this type of clay can help remove oil, from the surface of the skin, resulting to a calming and anti-inflammatory effect on inflamed breakouts. Using a clay face mask might help in boosting the skin’s ability to fight and remove its impurities to reduce the risk of pimples and other skin infections. Since it cleans your skin pores when you exfoliate, it also fades away the appearance of scars and dark spots. Naturally, your skin returns to its original tone. Mix it with water to create a thick paste, apply to the skin areas that are prone to oil or acne and then leave the mask on for about 20 minutes. Finally, rinse thoroughly. Repeat twice three times a week.

4. Skin sun protection: Although there is still no approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there are several studies that suggest that the clay processed into a Bentonite cream or paste can actually protect the skin from the harmful ultraviolet rays
