Used for over 4000 years in 'personal hygiene and cosmetics and as antieffettivi and antiputridi, clays and mineral sludge (silicon dioxide, on average 65%), in stabiile form of hydrated silicates of aluminum, water and contain numerous minerals (mainly fierce, magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium, manganese and other trace elements) are rimineralizzati materials, drainage, detergents, antioxidants and anti-toxic when applied in different skin districts.
The Clays have recognized actions, properly linked to the richness in minerals, magnetism, plasticity, such as the mineralizing capacity and calorie absorption of toxins and high osmotic pressure properties exercising. In practice, the mineral salts attract water, organic liquids, and many solutes by osmosis. We call this adsorbing capacity and "scambiocationico" water-salt.
The skin, consists predominantly of water and fat storage, is able to absorb and to secrete both hydro-soluble substances which, through the sebaceous glands and proper sudoripare. The Application of bentonite clay at an appropriate temperature on the splanchnic district or hepatic or articular or on the vascular district plays analgesic action and anti-inflammatory, remineralizing and rebalancing, absorbs liquids and impurities of the metabolism, it works as a catalyst of biological processes, rebalances termoregolaziione, regenerates the organic activity and awakens the energy potential, alkalized and disinfects tissues.
