Natural Cleansers & Clays

Activated Charcoal has an extremely porous surface that absorbs thousands of times its own weight, trapping toxins, chemicals, harmful drugs, pesticides, heavy metals, and various poisons within its structure, where it can then safely eliminate them from the body. It is extremely beneficial for stings, rashes, bites, acne, blocked pores, eczema, deep cleansing, inflammation, improved circulation and lymph.

Baking Soda: Helps to soak away aches and pains, deodorizes and alkalizes, softens the skin and is good for many skin conditions including athlete’s foot, bites, poisons, stings, sunburn and inflammation.

Bentonite Clay has a strong negative ionic charge that attracts toxins, harmful bacteria pesticides, heavy metals, and pathogens without leaching away beneficial elements from the body. Bentonite contains over 67 trace minerals that are arranged in such a way as to give this clay many detoxifying properties. It absorbs, revitalizes, and acts as a catalyst, boosting energy levels as it cleanses, strengthening the immune system, re-mineralizing cells and tissues, alkalizing the entire body, protecting from radiation, increasing nutrient assimilation, and defending against viruses and disease producing organisms. It helps with many skin disorders, including acne, candida, psoriasis, eczema, infections, chemical contamination and exposure to fluoride.

Borax is a natural occurring mineral composed of sodium, boron, oxygen, and water. It is an alkaline compound that supports brain function, boosts the immune system, and builds bones. Borax protects against pathogens, prevents the accumulation of toxic substances, removes parasites and harmful microbes, removes heavy metals, stimulates the production of natural body hormones, prevents calcification in body tissues, is an anti-inflammatory, fungicide, and has been used to treat abnormal cell growths, arthritis, gout, swollen gums, infections, osteoporosis, and other inflammatory diseases. Chemical fertilizers inhibit the uptake of boron from the soil, so most people are deficient in boron, weakening bones, teeth, and joints. It is a natural antiseptic, antifungal and antiviral. It is essential for the integrity and function of cell walls and the way signals are transmitted across membranes.

Celtic Sea Salt: High in minerals. The sulfur in the sea salt helps to synthesize oxygen, allowing the skin to breathe better.  The potassium helps with water balance for cell metabolism and aids in absorption of nutrients and elimination of waste products.  The calcium cleans skin pores and makes cell membranes stronger, and the magnesium rids skin of dirt and toxins.

Diatomaceous Earth:  Because of its physical structure, diatomaceous earth is a highly effective anti-inflammatory and cleansing agent for the body. It is an ancient fossil that can remove bacteria, parasites, e-coli, viruses, pesticides, heavy metals, and other toxins from the body. It is made up of approximately 33% silicon, 19% calcium, 5% sodium, 3% magnesium 2% iron and many other trace minerals such as titanium, boron, manganese, copper and zirconium. Silica strengthens bones and joints, prevents osteoporosis, and restores bone health, boosts the immune system, wards off Alzheimer’s, prevents premature aging and wrinkling of the skin, and strengthens arterial walls. Because today’s soils are extremely depleted of silica, 80% of all of our body’s silica is used up by the time we become adults. We add diatomaceous earth to almost all of our soaps, to help skin to remain strong and pliable.

Epsom Salt: A naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate that is easily absorbed through the skin.  Most people are deficient in magnesium, which regulates the activity of 325 enzymes, reduces inflammation, helps muscle and nerve function, prevents hardening of the arteries, improves the absorption of nutrients, can help ease migraine headaches, and helps flush toxins out of the body, improving all cellular functions.

French Green Clay: French green clay has been used for years as a detoxifying beauty treatment. When applied topically, it can aid the skin in healing and ridding itself of harmful toxins. French green clay has an ionic charge. Acting like a magnet, this type of clay attaches itself to the molecules of toxins so they can be rinsed away when the skin care treatment is done. French green clay boosts blood circulation, removes dead skin cells, tightens pores and helps regulate the function of oil glands. It’s one of the most absorbent cosmetic clays with the ability to hold close its weight in water. Because of this green clay is mostly recommended for oily skin, but is very useful in small amounts for all skin types. It removes toxins that contribute to allergies and inflammation and can be used to treat wounds, burns, sunburns, skin problems, bacterial infections, bruises, mouth sores, headaches and fevers.

Kaolin Clay:   White kaolin clay is rich in silicon and aluminum silicate and it is known to be the mildest of all clays. It is ideal for sensitive skin. It acts as a mild exfoliate when used in a cleanser or scrub. This exfoliation action helps in renewing, and re-mineralizing the epidermis while cleansing the skin.  It helps stimulate circulation while purifying the skin and closing dilated pores.  White Kaolin clay does not draw oils from skin hence can be used on dry skin types.  Internally it works against fermentation and intestinal intoxication.  It absorbs bacteria, viruses, gases and toxins present in the digestive system.  It plays a role of gastric protector by relieving pain from acidity, heart burn and ulcer; it also regulates pH and acidity, and reduces inflammation.

Morroccan Red Clay    Moroccan red clay powder is very gentle, highly absorbent and mixes easily with water, which makes it an excellent detoxifying facial cleanser and purifying mask for all skin types, including dry, delicate, and sensitive skin. It gently detoxifies the skin without dehydrating or irritating it, exfoliates dead skin cells, draws out excess dirt and oil, removes impurities and debris from under the skin without stripping the skin's protective layer, unclogs and tightens pores decreasing their size, regulates sebum production, tones, firms, invigorates, and revitalizes the skin helping restore its elasticity, reduces redness and inflammation, improves the complexion, evens out the skin tone, supports and strengthens the skin's defensive mechanisms, improves cellular circulation, stimulates cell renewal and collagen production, fights and prevents acne, spots, blemishes, and infections, facilitates the healing of small wounds, sores, burns, cuts, abscesses, boils, blisters, and even reduces stretch marks and scars and helps prevent premature aging. This Moroccan red clay is also a powerful antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, and antifungal agent keeping infection and inflammation at bay. It can also be used as a detoxifying scalp mask: it regulates sebum production, removes excess oil, dirt, product buildup without stripping the scalp's protective layer, fights infections, protects the scalp at the cellular level, strengthens the root bulbs and follicle connection, stimulates keratin production and hair growth.

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur compound that’s naturally derived during the earth’s rain cycle. MSM can normalize collagen formation, build new healthy tissues and radically improve skin health. MSM is a powerful anti-inflammatory, and is highly effective in improving flexibility of joints, skin and muscle tissues. It accelerates healing by making cells more permeable, allowing toxins and metabolic waste products to be easily removed, and essential nutrients and hydration brought into the cells. It’s a calcium phosphate dissolver, so it has a remarkable ability to break up the bad calcium that’s at the root of degenerative diseases.

Micronized zeolite has the perfect molecular structure for capturing and removing heavy metals from the body without removing healthy ions and minerals. Zeolite has been proven to absorb toxins, free radicals, and metals from your body, as well as boost the immune system. It is also a highly effective antioxidant, which means it neutralizes free radicals and helps prevent abnormal cell growths. Whenever micronized zeolite is introduced to the body, it buffers the system towards slightly alkaline (pH 7.35 to 7.45), which is an optimum pH for the human body. Zeolite attracts and then buffers excess protons which cause acidity, and can help many conditions from acid reflux to Candida and arthritis.

Non-GMO Corn Starch:  Soothes and helps heal inflamed and itching skin.

Pascalite Clay is a cousin of bentonite clay, but it is considered an unusual type of calcium bentonite rather than sodium bentonite.  It comes from the famous and mysterious Wyoming Big Horn Mountain Medicine Wheel Vortex where it is mined once a year when the snows recede and then dried naturally in the sun.  The crystalline lattice in the clay gives it the ability to store energy and then re-emit it.  It has been used to help with pain, infections, minor wounds, burns, skin problems, bites and stings, aches, soreness and inflammation.  Many people claim that it has unusual healing properties not found in other clays.

Redmond Mineral Unrefined Ancient Sea Salt: Comes from an ancient sea bed deposit in Utah where it is unadulterated by pollutants found in modern day seas.  Nature created the salt long before the earth experienced anthropogenic pollution and contaminants that are troubling our oceans today.  The salt deposit begins 30 feet below the surface and is covered by a layer of bentonite clay which has protected it from erosion and modern contamination.  This salt contains over 60 naturally occurring beneficial trace minerals. It comes from an environmentally responsible company using mainly solar energy.

Selenium: A vital trace mineral necessary for the production of antioxidant enzymes that remove toxic waste from the body.  It binds to heavy metals and reduces their toxicity.  Selenium works with vitamin E to prevent damage to cell membranes, including preventing oxidative damage that causes cells to grow abnormally.  Deficiency can lead to heart disease, abnormal growths and lowered immune function.

Washing soda—sodium carbonate—is in the same family as baking soda. It has just been processed differently. It is much more alkaline, with a pH of 11.   It cuts grease, cleans petroleum oil, removes wax or lipstick, and neutralizes odors in the same way that baking soda does.  It softens the skin and is good for many skin conditions including athlete’s foot, bites, poisons, stings, sunburn and inflammation.
