Green Bentonite Clay

This highly absorbent clay is suitable for many uses. Reduces oil on the face and can be used to exfoliate. Contains chromium, copper and nickel.
Scientists from Arizona State University report that minerals from clay could provide inexpensive, highly-effective antimicrobials to fight methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections that are moving out of health care settings and into the community. The clays could be applied as rub-on creams or ointments to keep MRSA infections from spreading, according to a research duo from ASU
Montmorillonite and Bentonite clays are smectite clays. Smectites have a high cation exchange rate and can absorb oils. These clays are a three layer structure as well. The layers here are held together with calcium or sodium cations making for a larger space between the layers. These clays are able to capture organic materials and effectively treat infections or to detox. Montmorillonite clay is green and comes from the Montmorillonite region in France. It is structurally very close to Bentonite clay. Bentonite clay is from the US, near Ft.Benton.
