Zeolites are volcanic minerals which act as ion-exchange agents and are known to have a high negative charge and high absorptive properties. Like Bentonite clay Zeolites are active minerals that have earned a reputation as powerful natural cleansing agents for the skin and body.
Powdered Zeolite is a chalky substance which is easy to mix and does not clump. Thus it is just a matter of adding water and it's ready to use for baths and footbaths. Due to its chalkiness however, it does not form into a paste very well so it requires a base if it is to be used for facials or body wraps etc.
