You might have heard about clay masks before, and maybe you’ve even heard about Bentonite clay, which is one of the many different kinds of clay uses for health and beauty purposes.
Maybe you’ve wondered how Bentonite clay works and if it can really make your skin healthier.
You’re not alone! We hear these questions a lot, so let’s take a closer look at Bentonite clay and how it can help you.
What is Bentonite Clay?
Bentonite clay is a super-absorbing, naturally-occurring clay derived from volcanic ash. It’s named after Fort Benton, Wyoming, the largest natural source of the clay. (However, Bentonite Secret clay comes from a deposit in Death Valley, California.)
When mixed with water, bentonite clay creates a negative charge, which allows it to attract and absorb negatively charged toxins including dirt, oil, and chemicals.
Many cultures have been using bentonite clay for centuries to detoxify the body, improve skin conditions, and aid in overall wellness.
The Benefits of Bentonite Clay
Healthline.com cites the benefits of bentonite clay as absorbing chemicals and heavy metals including:

By drawing all this bad stuff out of the skin, Bentonite clay can soothe, heal, soften, and clear skin naturally.
Bentonite clay has also been shown to be an effective healing ingredient and is so gentle that it is sometimes used in creams to treat diaper rash in babies.
How Bentonite Clay Works
When mixed with purified water, the bentonite clay in Bentonite Secret Clay Mask carries a slight electrical charge that allows it to attract oil, dirt, and toxins from deep within your pores. Without these irritants, ailments like acne, rashes, and redness often decrease or even disappear.
How to Use Bentonite Clay
Normally, you’d have to mix powdered clay with water to create a mask, but our Bentonite Secret Clay Mask is ready to use, right out of the bottle!
Leave the clay mask on your skin as it dries for about 5 minutes, then remove gently with a wet washcloth. Follow with moisturizer and your normal beauty routine.
Is Bentonite Clay Safe?
According to Healthline.com, using a natural Bentonite clay mask is a healthy alternative to masks with chemicals and harsher synthetic ingredients. Bentonite Secret Clay Mask contains no fragrances, dyes, or other chemicals. It’s 100% pure, natural, and gentle.
Tip: Just to be positive that Bentonite Secret Clay is safe for YOU, always make sure to test any new skin care product on a small patch of skin, such as the inside of your wrist, to make sure that it won’t cause a reaction.
