French Black Clay is also known as Terra Black Clay. It possesses a striking charcoal black hue. French Black Clay is a form of Montmorillonite clay, a soft absorbent clay named after the western region of France known as Montmorillon.

Our French Black Clay is mined, mechanically pulverized into a very fine powered consistency and dried without use of any chemical treatments or additives. It is then carefully packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this mineral-rich clay.
