I’ve used powdered bentonite clay masks for years, following the directions to mix the powder with water in a small bowl then apply as a paste. I love the way the bentonite clay soaks up any oil, dirt, and impurities. But once I had a baby, I was desperately short on time. The process of mixing my own mask, waiting 15 minutes for it to dry, then cleaning up the mess wasn’t going to happen.
My trusty jar of bentonite clay powder languished under the sink, unused and neglected. That’s not to say I didn’t miss the product. With my first baby still breastfeeding and newly pregnant with another, my skin was a mess from the roller coaster of hormones.
Searching For a Natural Solution
When I searched for pregnancy-friendly, natural skin care products, bentonite clay kept coming up as a top recommendation. Since I already had a jar in the bathroom, it made sense to give it another try. But because I was so busy, I started mixing my own products in bulk ahead of time.
I added some bentonite clay to my cleanser, my scrub, and my moisturizer. I had no idea if it would work, but I simply didn’t have the time to mix a mask and sit for 15 minutes.
To my surprise, within a week or two, my skin had completely cleared up. I found that using bentonite clay every day, instead of once every week or two, had a much greater impact on my beauty routine. My combination of cleanser, scrub, and moisturizer was a safe and easy-to-use winner that didn’t take me any extra time! I was blown away.
Since I had a friend who worked in skin care, I asked her if it would be possible to create a batch of these products for long-term use. She said it would be easy! At that moment, Bentonite Secret Clay Mask was born.
Our products are based on the philosophy that skin care should be:
- Easy to use
- Safe for pregnant and breastfeeding moms
Bentonite Secret Skin Care is designed to be used on a regular basis, so it won’t dry out or irritate sensitive skin. Because our mask is pre-mixed and ready to use, there’s no mixing, mess, or cleanup!
