About Living Clay

Living Clay - The World's Only Source of
Pure Calcium Bentonite Clay

Living Clay is obtained from the last remaining sub-surface mine in California (near Death Valley). It is a rare desert healing clay that has been protected from leaching by the climate. This clay deposit was sealed away and isolated from the natural elements by a cap of zeolite minerals for forty-three million years. Because its adsorptive properties have not been compromised by air or ground water contaminants, this highly charged, pure, Calcium Bentonite Clay has drawing power that is unsurpassed by any other known clay. Its extremely strong adsorptive and absorptive properties make it ideal for use in deep cleansing and clarifying of the skin, treatment of skin conditions, rashes, burns and other external injuries, and total body detoxification. You can't buy purer or more potent healing clay from any other source in the world, and therefore, it is the ONLY clay we will use in our products.  We settle for nothing less than the BEST for our customers!

The pH of Living Clay is 9.7, and thus it acts as an alkalizing agent in the body. The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Below 7 is acid and above 7 is alkaline. The body’s pH level plays a critical role in its ability to remain healthy and resist disease. Tissues in the body that are poorly oxygenated, or devoid of oxygen, are acidic and prone to disease. Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy tissues are alkaline. Blood, lymph and cerebral spinal fluid in the human body are designed to be slightly alkaline at a pH of 7.4. At a pH level of 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at pH 8.5 cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live. As most disease occurs when pH falls into the acid range, it is essential to alkalize the body, to a pH of 7.4 or slightly above, by every means available.

On a molecular level, Robert T. Martin, a mineralogist at MIT, points to Bentonite’s minute particle size that creates a large surface area in proportion to the volume used. “The greater the surface area, the greater its power to pick up positively charged particles of toxins.” Bentonite’s minute molecular particle size is related to the number of minerals comprising its molecule. The smaller the number of minerals in its molecule, the greater is the adsorptive power of the clay. Living Clay is pure Calcium Bentonite Clay and is comprised of only 17 minerals in its molecular structure.  Other clays contain as many as 73. This gives it unparalleled adsorptive properties as compared to other Calcium Bentonite Clays.

How Healing Clay Works – Adsorption and Absorption

The two words are similar but their differences are fundamental to understanding how clay minerals function and how healing clay works. Adsorption describes the process by which the charged particles of other substances combine with the charged particles on the outer surface of the clay molecule.  First imagine the structure of the clay molecule to be similar to a stack of business cards with spaces in between the cards. The clay molecule has unsatisfied ionic bonds around its edges and naturally seeks to satisfy those bonds. For this to happen it must come into contact with a molecule of another substance with unsatisfied bonds that carry an opposite electrical (ionic) charge. When the two molecules meet, the ions held on the outer surface of the clay molecule are exchanged with the ions held on the outside surface of the molecule of the other substance.

Clay molecules carry a negative electrical charge while toxins, bacteria and other impurities carry a positive charge. When the clay is taken into the human body, the positively charged toxins are attracted to the negatively charged surfaces of the clay molecule. An exchange reaction occurs in which the clay mineral ions are swapped for the ions of the toxic substance. The clay molecule is now electrically satisfied and holds onto the toxin until our bodies can eliminate both.

Absorption is a slower and more complex process. Acting like a sponge, the clay molecule draws other substances into its internal structure. Absorption can only occur when the foreign substance has undergone a chemical change and is then allowed to enter the clay’s molecular inner structure. Once the foreign substance has undergone the chemical change, it enters into the spaces between the clay’s inner structures. So the toxins that were formerly only sticking to the surface of the clay’s outer structure through ionic bonding, are now pulled inside the clay molecule. This is the primary reason why absorptive clays are labeled as mobile layered or expandable clays. The more substances that are pulled into the clay’s inner structure, the more the clay expands and its layers swell.

All absorbent clays have a charge on their inner layers. This means that charged ions sit between the layers of the clay molecule surrounded by water molecules. The clay expands as foreign substances are absorbed and fill the spaces between the clay molecule’s stacked layers. Absorbent clay will absorb positively charged toxins and impurities and ignore negatively charged nutrients.

Our clay is pure Calcium Bentonite Clay.  It can be applied externally (topically). Clay has many beneficial effects. It eliminates unhealthy positively charged cells and promotes the building of healthy ones. It also cleanses the skin by eliminating all positively charged toxins, bacteria, and other unhealthy noxious substances.

To sum it all up, Living Clay supplies the best, purest, most effective healing clay available today.  We are very pleased to be able to offer it to you in all of our products.
