Bentonite clay is a deep pore cleansing facial, hair and body mask that is great for facials, body wraps, and hair/scalp detox masks!
When the clay mask is applied to the skin it forms a negative charge. Toxins and oils stored in the epidermis have a positive charge and the clay lifts the oils to the surface for removal.
It’s filled with minerals and generally has a shelf life of 4-5 years.
Do not leave clay mask on skin longer than 5-10 mins for sensitive skin; this will reduce redness/drying. Slight redness of skin is normal and will usually disappear in about 30 mins
Important Note 2:
For external use only. Please conduct a forearm skin patch test prior to facial use to test for allergic reactions or sensitivity. Works best when mixed with Apple Cider Vinegar.
Mel's Bentonite Clay Detox Mask Base 16oz.
Mix the dry clay with equal parts raw apple cider vinegar, and add water as needed to liquefy the mixture to a pancake batter-like consistency. Best to use a non-metal bowl and utensil. Stir the mixture well, until it is a smooth paste. Add more clay or liquid as needed. Apply 1/4 to 1/2 inch layer to the face or other area.
Let it dry for
5-10 minutes for delicate skin
15-20 minutes for normal skin
You will feel a pulling and tightening sensation. Remove clay by washing with warm water. Slight redness of the skin is normal and will disappear after about 30 minutes.
