What is Bentonite?

Geologically Bentonite is ancient volcanic ash that was deposited in sea water approximately 60 million years ago. It is a swelling-type bentonite 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.

The Best Bentonite occurs in Wyoming. It's also known as western or sodium type bentonite. 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.

Because of these unique properties and characteristics, Wyoming Bentonite is the standard against which all other bentonite in the world is measured. And that's why it's the only bentonite that we use.

Why Best Bentonite?

Just like our name implies We source only the best 100% pure Bentonite Clay with no additives, ensuring the highest quality product for our customers.

Quality Clay.

It's important to use 100% pure high-quality clay. While certain clays are ideal, and others are acceptable though not as good, others should be avoided altogether. The experts agree that 100% pure clean, raw, natural swelling smectite clays are the best. This includes swelling bentonite sometimes called montmorillonite, which are often referred to as a Living Clay. But that does not mean the clay has to be expensive to be good.

Bentonite Clay Is used to make a whole host of products that you use every day. Some are obvious like mud baths at the spa, facial mud mask, soap, and toothpaste. But others uses for this raw mineral may surprise you like; makeup, face cream, cat litter, dog & cat wormier, algae control in koi ponds, and the kao part of Kaopectate.  And there are many more.

There are a lot of products that are made using bentonite as ether the base, or the main active ingredient. In most cases this commercial bentonite is diluted first with calcium. For these purposes. Bentonite that is diluted with calcium, all though much easier to mix and more readily available, no longer contains the same amount of absorptive properties and does not work as well. That's why our Bentonite has nothing else added not even Calcium.
Our Bentonite clay is the 100% pure bentonite with nothing mixed in.  The same high quality bentonite at the best price since 2005
