It’s filled with minerals and is considered by many to have a shelf life of 4-5 years. It is important to note that Bentonite clay is not suitable for ingestion.

I have been using essential oils to make personal care items for a while now, and wanted to try to incorporated bentonite clay to make a few more items. I cannot say enough good things about this clay! It is great quality, works wonderfully in shampoo; despite warnings from the site, I used it in homemade tooth powder as well (you spit it, so...). Shipping on their end is great (not my carrier's end, but that's a different story :) ), all of their products are superior quality. I have NEVER had an issue with the quality of their products!! Love ordering from here!
Great price and great product. I'm using it in my koi pond, and they love it.
This is a good quality cosmetic grade clay
I use this product ALL the time! Bulk Apothecary has the best quality for the price and it gets to my door fast! LOVE IT!!
This is exactly what I needed for my casting project.
I am very pleased with this item. The quality and amount for the price is great! I've bought multiple items from this site and have never been disappointed.
I've ordered one other time from Bulk Apocatherapy, and it was super fast! Only ordered this clay, took about a week, which isn't bad since I'm on the other side of the country. Product was amazing!!! I live very it, the hubby, my son and my nephew all let me do facials on em and they loved it. I tried the hair mask...I can't rave enough!! I was a bit worried about the quality and only got a small bag, worry not fellow shoppers, this was the EXACT quality as some you may find elsewhere, but the price!!! I love a deal, and I loved this product, definitely will buy again, this time, in Bulk
So far I've only used it for my hair. I mixed with apple cider vinegar, olive oil, water and a couple drops of peppermint. It cleaned my hair beautifully, and my dogs. No residue and left my hair soft.
I need a recipe for all natural conditioner.
First time I've ever tried clay. Perfect!
Great quality. Fine texture with no clumps, clean clay with no trash in it, smells as it should. The clay is a darker gray color. If you are seeing the photos as an off white or cream color, it's likely your screen, because bentonite is a grayish brown.
