How calcium bentonite clay works
Calcium bentonite clay is a unique clay due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when mixed with water (hydrated). When this happens, the electrical charge that it carries changes and it attracts and binds to toxins whether they are inside or on the surface of the body. Calcium bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals, which is why bentonite clay acne benefits are so useful to anyone with a skin prone to acne or blackheads as they need to keep their skin as cleans and as oil free as possible. Using a bentonite clay mask can do just that and more.

Calcium Bentonite clay – what the colour tells us
The best calcium bentonite clay masks are those with a grey/green pigment – avoid ones that say they are bentonite clay but are more white in colour as they may not be as effective as the real thing. The best mask we’ve found is the Aztec Secret Healing Clay. You can read a full review here.
