Don't be fooled by cheaper substitutes! This grade of clay is the highest grade possible for green illite. The particle sizing is under 20 microns. The process by which this clay achieves an average particle size between 15 and 20 microns makes this clay much more expensive than clay that is simply milled. Our experience with our customers makes it very clear that clay enthusiasts prefer the ultraventilated clay over clay that is just milled... and even over the granular clay... so much so that we now only carry this grade!

This is the grade of clay that used to be certified as food grade in France.

French green clays were first made famous in North America by renown naturopath Raymond Dextreit when his landmark book "Our Earth Our Cure" was translated into English. By far our favorite french clay, this amazing  mineral has been used (as one of two clays) by the "Buruli Busters" to treat buruli ulcerations in Africa. The use of this clay was part of Thierry Brunet's landmark presentation on the use of therapeutic clays to treat buruli ulcers, presented in 2002 to the World Health Organization in Geneva.

This clay is quite different from the smectite clays and zeolite that we offer, and makes a great addition to one's arsenal of "earth cures". Illite is an extremely weathered clay, and is classified as a mica. This clay can be used on its own, or mixed with other clays for great skin care formulas, or for internal supplementation. It mixes readily with equal parts water and clay. When used in drinking water, it has a clean, earthy taste.

We recommend the use of Illite for skin treatments, cosmetics, and supplements. As a non-swelling clay, green illite mixes readily with water for a perfect facial masque.
