Clay Treatment for Acne

Calcium bentonite clay mask for acneMany people have reported success in treating their acne with calcium bentonite clay. The mode of action is this: the bentonite clay mask will draw excess sebum (oil) from the pores of the skin, and doubles its duty by gently exfoliatiating the face.

Clay acne treatment can be a very effective alternative to harsher chemical skin products, or side-effect laden pharmaceutical acne drugs.

What is Calcium Bentonite?

Calcium Bentonite is a natural clay formed from the weathering of volcanic ash in the presence of water.  It is sometimes called montmorillonite or Pascalite.

Clays, particularly bentonite clay, have been used for hundreds of years as natural medicinal remedies.  Because of the great power of calcium bentonite for absorption and adsorption, it has many beneficial uses throughout the body for maintaining health.

Bentonite clay and its strong absorptive properties have been used topically to draw fluid from burns and infections, as well as on spider bites and bee stings.  It is also used as a deodorant, a facial mask, and for healing acne and other skin problems.  Calcium bentonite is also used as a digestive aid and a colon cleanser, as well as oral hygiene and dental health.
