 SILKKA'S VOLCANIC MINERALS

Silkka's calcium bentonite clay (volcanic minerals) is the purest form of this mineral on the market today. Comprised of only 10 minerals (as opposed to 70, which other forms of this clay may have), it provides an ideal base for our skincare. Our clay's extraordinary purity gives it a greater ability to soak up contaminants, and revitalize the skin - truly detoxifying and healing.

CALCIUM BENTONITE CLAY

Healing clays have been used in France, Australia, the Americas, the Middle East and Europe for millennia in traditional medicine. Throughout history the use of clay, specifically green clay or bentonite, is well documented. Cleopatra used clay from the Nile River and the Arabian Desert 2000 years ago as part of her beauty ritual. Ancient German and Italian spas used clay packs and treatments 4,000 years ago. Many of these spas still exist and continue to use clay today, as do most of the world's finest spas and wellness centers.

HOW DOES HEALING CLAY WORK?


The secrets of clay's medicinal qualities lie in its microscopically fine particle structure and in its electrochemical properties. Molecules of clay carry negatively charged ions. Most toxins, bacteria and other contaminants carry the opposite positively charged ions. Particles of clay therefore attract and absorb contaminants, physically preventing them from harming the body's living cells.

This effect is increased by the ultrafine size of clay particles. The finer the clay, the smaller are its particles. Just as a deck of cards has a far greater surface area than a solid block of the same size, so the smaller the size of the clay particles the larger is the overall surface area for a given mass of clay. Because its surface area is vast it can therefore absorb greater quantities of toxins. There is a considerable body of scientific research that documents the medicinal properties and uses of fine clays.
