Internal and external use.
on March 30, 2017
I wanted bentonite clay for both internal and external use. This clay was mentioned in a few of the health blogs I follow but I was concerned because some of the reviews said that it had a different label than the one in the product description and theirs reads: for external use only. I couldn't find a comparable product so I took my chances and ordered this one because the price kept increasing. Sure enough, I received a product with a different label than advertised. My product label reads: for external use. I was very annoyed so I called the company and spoke with a woman who explained that there are new rules for labeling products that are used for internal use. For whatever reason, companies must use two different labels, two different descriptions and two different containers. So even though their clay is fine for both internal and external use, they must sell one with a label that says external use only and another with a label that says for internal use. Redmond is in the process of making new labels and marketing them separately but the clay inside is exactly the same clay. This employee says that this clay is safe to drink, eat, apply as a mask, brush my teeth with, make a shampoo with, etc...
I've done all of the above except shampoo. I love it as a mask. It made my face really soft and clean. It helped me pull toxins from my armpits so that my homemade, natural deodorant works well. I've been drinking it about 1-2 times a week with psyllium husks and/or activated charcoal to help my gut. I haven't had any issues taking this internally. I haven't noticed many benefits but I'm gonna keep trying. I've made a mineralizing tooth powder with this and other ingrediants and I really like it. I'll definitely be buying this product again once this tub runs out.
