Properties of Bentonite MagmasOur Everyday Life

Bentonite is a rock, called a smectite, composed of clay minerals formed from volcanic ash. When purified water is blended with bentonite, you get bentonite magma. Bentonite magma is used in cosmetic and health care formulations because of its stabilization of suspensions and emulsions properties, as a transport system for controlled release of drugs, as a thickening agent and for its absorbent qualities.
