Living Clay

Living Clay® is a weathered volcanic ash made up of numerous trace minerals in their natural oxide form. The Smectite family of clays, which include Bentonites, are called ‘living clays’ because of their ability to make chemical changes. Smectites are capable of both adsorption and absorption demonstrating an unusually high Cation Exchange Capacity. This Cation Exchange takes place in the adsorpotion layer of the clay molecule.
