green clay

Our “Green Clay”, (a term that originated in France), is a Southern African equivalent and has been extracted from the richest known deposit in the world. The product has been reduced to a very fine degree, exposing a maximum surface area, therefore optimising the potential healing properties of this amazing clay.

Green clay is legendary and universally renowned for its therapeutic qualities. It is known for its ability to absorb and adsorb positively charged ions in the body. When wet the clay develops a strong negative charge. Toxins, heavy metals, most bacteria and viruses are positively charged. The clay has the ability to draw these impurities out much like a magnet. The clay is capable of removing up to 25 times its own molecular weight. The clay is calcium rich and also contains other minerals as a result of volcanic sedimentation millions of years ago. Some of these essential minerals are released by the clay in exchange for impurities that are drawn up into its molecular structure.

This double action means that the clay extracts impurities along with dead skin removed by the extremely small particles which gently exfoliate when rubbed on the skin. The exchange leaves the skin soft, silky and tender.

It has been found to be useful for problems such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, infections, burns, insect bites, cuts, warts, exfoliation and can be anti-inflammatory and anti-septic. It makes a wonderful poultice for bruises, sprains, arthritis, etc. It stimulates the circulation of blood and absorbs toxins and free radicals.
