Bentonite clay is well known for its highly absorptive and adsorptive properties. Geologically, bentonite is a volcanic ash deposited in sea water approximately 60 million years ago.  This mineral-rich bentonite is a swelling-type clay containing only 14 to 17 elements – one of the lowest number of elements to comprise a mineral on earth. This low mineral count is believed to be partially responsible for the high absorptive properties in the clay.

Our bentonite clay is known as western or sodium type bentonite. Our bentonite clay is a #200 mesh fine powder, also known as montmorillonite. This type of bentonite is capable of absorbing 7 to 10 times its own weight in water, and swelling up to 18 times its dry volume.

L’argile bentonite est bien connue pour ses propriétés hautement absorptives et adsorptives. Géologiquement, la bentonite est une frêne volcanique déposée dans l’eau de mer il y a environ 60 millions d’années. Cette bentonite riche en minéraux est une argile de type gonflement contenant seulement 14 à 17 éléments – l’un des plus faibles nombres d’éléments à comprendre un minéral sur terre. On croit que ce faible nombre de minéraux est partiellement responsable des propriétés d’absorptive élevée dans l’argile
Notre argile bentonite est connue sous le nom de bentonite occidentale ou de type sodium. Notre argile bentonite est une poudre fine en maille #200, également connue sous le nom de montmorillonite. Ce type de bentonite est capable d’absorber 7 à 10 fois son propre poids dans l’eau, et gonfler jusqu’à 18 fois son volume sec.

    Really enjoy working with Bentonite clay. Makes a great additive to many things.

  2. Rebecca

    I used this bentonite clay to make a homemade detoxification body wrap. Its 100% pure and amazing! It was a great price, delivery was on time, everything was perfect! It’s been about a week since my wrap, and my skin is still silky smooth and looks great. Not to mention the amazing detoxifying properties this has! Try it! You won’t regret it!

  3. Amanda

    I love this clay! we mix this with another clay and a few other ingredients to make an amazing face mask.

  4. Cynthia

    Great product – use it in my cleansing grains & facial masks!

  5. Jordan

    It is a good, fine consistency and has been wonderful to work with in all my recipes. I have bought it multiple times now

  6. Danielle

    Love this product! Works so well in my clay masks!! Would totally recommend this product!

  7. Cindy

    I love this as a mask and in soap! Adds such a smooth slip to the soap, and works wonders as a mask.

  8. Jane

    very smooth fine clay. Great for everything from masks to toothpaste.

  9. Maureen

    A lovely additive to CP soap to increase glide. I use it in shaving soap. Adding it is a bit of a trick : measure out about 1 tsp PPO into a container. Once you’ve incorporated the lye into the oils and it’s opaque, pull out a ladle or two and add to your dry Bentonite. Mix like gravy getting the lumps out. Add to your soap pot (before trace to make sure it’s well incorporated).

    Love the low price for a superior product, Saffire, thanks so much!

  10. Sarah

    Great product to use in CP soaps that are meant for shaving soaps. Give it a nice slick silky smooth feeling without razor burns. Also great for masks.. just do not use anything metal otherwise it will deactivate the bentonite

  11. Cindy

    This clay gives soaps a lovely slip, while still cleaning and refreshing the skin.

  12. emily

    Did not clump, quite fine, Great price! I loved that I can order small quantities.

  13. Katie

    I’ve read that if bentonite clay comes in a shade of white the quality is poor. This clay was a wonderful rich grey, no doubt very good quality from Saffire blue.

  14. Ange

    Lovely light green to grey color. Great for face masks or as an addition to my cp soap. Great no mess no fuss packaging.

  15. Catherine

    So far I’ve used this product in powder foundation. Good price and nice practical packaging.

  16. Wendy

    Lovely light grey, soft powdery clay. It is perfect for combination skin (it seems less drying than French green clay, which I use on those very oily days) when used for facial masks. And because of it’s slippery feel when wet, it makes a wonderful scrub when fine cornmeal is added to it. Since this is a swelling clay, a little goes a long way. Well worth the price!

  17. Melanie

    Packaging is impeccable, order was shipped really fast, overall excellent customer service. Thank you.

  18. Jennifer

    I love this clay. Light grey in colour. Works great as a mask alone, or combined with oils and other clays for a number of purposes. Can be slightly drying on already dry skin, to avoid this I mix with a lightweight carrier oil instead of water or aloe vera juice.

  19. Shelly

    This clay is great! I’ve purchased elsewhere and it was white which means that it was cut with something. This clay is nice rich grey. I used it in my deodorant and it’s exactly what it needed. FANTASTIC

    I like this product and will be purchasing it again.
