Zeolite Clay

ZEOLITE CLAY INFORMATION

This item is mixed in the famous Amargosa Valley of New Mexico. It is a high purity Zeolite capable of odor absorption, ion exchange, ammonium removal, etc. Frequently it is used in cosmetics as a mild scrub, and as a cleansing agent for the absorption of impurities in the skin literally into the Zeolite’s nano-pore structure. The Zeolite is commercially sterilized and guaranteed free of bacteria.
