We get a lot of questions about our Bentonite, so here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions, and their answers. But first, our disclaimer.....
Generally speaking, we provide supplies to potters and ceramic artists. Occasionally people in the cosmetic or health industries buy our chemical products. We are delighted to get the orders, however, we sell commercial grade chemicals/clays and we make no claims as to how they'll perform for any of these uses.
Although we rarely switch sources of supply, we do not highly control or specify the exact Bentonite that we carry. As a result, our source of Bentonite may change in the future. Always test the product you receive before investing time and/or money into them. (Potters already know this, right?)
Truthfully, you can't. As we say above, we do not highly control our source of supply and it may change from time to time. It's probably the same, but that's as far as we'll go.
We really don't know, and we're not claiming it to be. At some point we believe someone bought our Bentonite and compared it to Bentonite they bought for pharmaceutical use. It probably seemed to be the same, thus the comment on other sites. If you want to know more, please ask them.
The bentonite comes to us in 50 lb paper bags, and is stored that way until a customer places an order. When it is weighed into smaller increments than 50 lbs, out it is transferred to plastic bags. Orders of 50 lbs will be shipped in the paper bag.
