Use: An all-natural clay extracted from the rich volcanic earth of the Auvergne region in France. The deposits in this region provide a unique ratio of illite, montmorillonite, and kaolinite clays not found anywhere else. This natural mix results in its excellent absorbtion, intermediate adsorption capacity, and high coverage volume. In addition the material is silica and fiber free. French Green Clay has been used for years in agricultural, animal care, cosmetic, and even folk medicine applications. Anecdotal evidence suggests antibacterial characteristics, and French green clay from this region has been used to promote rapid healing from applications of it\'s paste to bug bites and stings.
