Our Bentonite clay mask,from Morocco,is a powerful healing clay composed of naturally occurring weathered and aged volcanic ash sediments. When added to water, the clay particles form mud which produces an electric charge which can help to remove positively charged product build up from within the hair and body. It absorbs toxins and impurities as well as chemicals and heavy metals.
Ingredients : Bentonite Powdered Clay Particles, 50g.
Bentonite can detoxify, cleanse and restore the balance of your hair and body. It’s the best clay mask to detox skin.
Bentonite ancient earth is naturally rich in Silicon, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Potassium, and Sodium. Mined in Morocco. Nothing added. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll be amazed at how your skin looks and feels and you’ll be hooked on a centuries old treatment that is a must in today’s world of chemically affected skin.
For natural skincare , to use the deep cleansing mask, simply add an equal amount of cool to luke warm water ( or try bottled mineral water or pure rose water/any other pure floral water) to the ash, leave to stand for about 5 minutes, then mix into a mud paste. Leave alone for another 2 to 3 minutes, then apply the sticky clay to your scalp or skin and smooth it on – it almost melts as it goes on to the skin and it practically glides, looking like a fine chalk masque as it goes on. Once the scalp/skin is covered leave the masque on for about 10 minutes for the first application. Rinse with luke warm water to reveal bright and silky smooth skin.
Build up the application time slowly. The first two or three times you use this clay your skin may feel very “tight”. That’s because the clay removes all excess oils and toxins. You will find that this feeling disappears as you build up the applications slowly and you can gradually aim for occasional 20 minute applications once a week. The clay will help to unblock clogged pores, reduce dryness and flakiness, and help to shed dead skin, revealing a smoother skin surface with improved elasticity and tone.
Leftovers can be kept up to 2 days in cool temperatures, otherwise store in the fridge. You can use left over mud as a daily facial skin mask. Used regularly over a period of time you will notice an improvement in scalp balance and skin tone and in many cases you will notice that the skin ( and scalp) will start to find its own “balance”.
Use the mud to cleanse your face every night and don’t use any night cream or moisturiser ! You’ll be amazed at how your skin settles into detox mode and cleans itself up with just a little help from this amazing clay. Use again in the mornings to wash your face, followed by your normal moisturiser. Your skin will start to find its own natural balance.

I was really pleased with the Bentonite mask and I love the fact it lifted my early Winter/late Autumm skin which was showing signs of a post summer slump! I used the clay water too as suggested and recommend the regime Sabrina suggests in the instructions. As ever another fab product.
Wow, this stuff is amazing!! Got it as a freebie but am definitely going to buy again. It makes my skin feel so soft and glowing.
This has got to be my favourite beauty product. I use it as a facial mask when my skin is in need of a detox. This product almost melts into the skin and you can really see the difference in your skin after. Lovely texture and I sometimes mix it with my rose water for added benefits.
