Bentonite clay is an absorbent natural clay, which has been used for medical and skin care purposes since ages. It is formed when volcanic ashes age with time. It gets its name from Fort Benton, Wyoming, which is a vast source for this clay. It is also found in many other places around the world.
Bentonite is known for its quality of absorption. It can even absorb fine particles like dirt, bacteria and toxins from your skin. It has high cation exchange quality as well. This means that bentonite has negatively charged ions that can attract positively charged ions.
