Bentonite Clay is an amazing cosmetic tool with origin in the Asia continent. In this article, I examine the identity of Bentonite Clay in Hindi, Urdu and Tamil, and where one can buy it in India.
We also analyze how this healing clay is popular in Malaysia and New Zealand.
Bentonite Clay in Hindi
In Hindi, bentonite clay is known as Multani Mitti. Although a few years ago, this clay had been in use for centuries to cleanse and soften the skin.
This clay came into the spotlight in the cosmetic industry in the recent past for its health and medicinal properties.
Multani Mitti or bentonite clay is a product of the volcanic process and subsequent composition of deposits.
Bentonite Clay meaning in Hindi
The Hindi name Multani is believed to originate from Pakistan and refers to the place of origin. Initially, this clay is believed to have originated from a place known as Multani.
Mitti on the other hand means clay or mud. The Hindi interpretation of bentonite clay is derived from its place of origin – Multani. Therefore, in Hindi, the name means the clay or mud from Multani.
It is obvious that the Hindi interpretation refers to the clay produced from volcanic eruptions and deposition around the sea and river beds. Basically, this clay was harvested from a river in the Multani area of Punjab, Pakistani.
Even though they may not be exactly the same, similarities between these clay are quite evident.
Bentonite Clay in Urdu
Bentonite or fuller’s earth or Montmorillonite clay in English is composed of many minerals formed from volcanic ashes.
In Urdu, bentonite clay noun is ايک مٹي جو پاني ميں مِل کر بہت زيادہ پھولتي ہے اور جيلي ميں تبديل ہو جاتي ہے. This clay was named by Wilbur, and mainly consists of montmorillonite.
Bentonite Clay in India
I don’t think anyone in India can have a problem accessing bentonite clay. This is because many local drug stores and supermarkets are selling bentonite clay products.
One can also purchase different bentonite brands from online stores including Amazon, Indiamart, and Alibaba among others. Amazon and Alibaba also provide free shipping for wholesale or bulk buying.
The main and common brands include Anaha Indian origin Premium and Aztec Secret Indian healing. Pure bentonite brands have no additives, animal products, fragrances, or any other chemicals.
These products are used as a facial mask for deep pore cleaning to get rid of toxins and other impurities from the skin. The end result is a refreshed, soft, smooth, young-looking, and glowing skin.
Bentonite Clay in Tamil
Tamil translation of bentonite clay is Penttonait kaliman. This clay is available in plenty in retail and wholesale from various suppliers and approved dealers of natural products in Tamil Nadu and Chennai.
You can also order this clay online from Amazon and Alibaba as well as local drug stores, cosmetic shops, and supermarkets.
You will also find other natural products and clay for skincare from these suppliers. Key among them are Kaolin clay and Dead Sea clay among other natural products with exemplary healing health properties.
Even though kaolin and bentonite clay are popular DIY recipes, they are really different. In general, bentonite clay is really super weird in contrast to most other types of clay used for health and beauty purposes.

Bentonite clay is used worldwide for beauty and other health benefits. For those in Malaysia, you can too experience the magic of this organic bentonite clay.
This clay is available in major and small cities of Malaysia including Kuala Lumpur. You will find different brands including Aztec Secret, and Life Flo 100% Pure Bentonite Clay Facial Detox among other brands.

The clay is currently extracted for cosmetic and other health benefits. It has medicinal and healing qualities to cleanse and detoxify the skin and body.
Bentonite Clay Liquid
A liquid form of bentonite clay is preferred because, unlike the others that require mixing, you don’t have to mix it yourself.
The liquid form is also inert; meaning it passes through the body without being digested thus being able to function through the digestive system.
This makes liquid bentonite an excellent agent for internal cleansing of the body of microbial, toxins, and impurities.
These products work by binding harmful substances via the adsorbent action. It is taken internally to support the intestinal system to eliminate toxins.
By absorbing water, this clay is stretched and swells up like a porous sponge, drawing toxins into spaces via bound and electrical attraction.
In view of the Canadian Journal of Microbiology, this clay has the ability to absorb disease-causing pathogens as well as pesticides and herbicides.
Eventually, this clay is eliminated from the body together with toxins bound on its surfaces.
Taking one spoonful of liquid bentonite liquid once or twice a day on empty stomach is enough to generate positive results.
Bentonite works well on an empty stomach or can also be taken a few hours before or after meals. Starting with one teaspoonful daily is highly advisable, and since it is tasteless, you are advised to mix it with some juice.
Dosage can be increased gradually if the results are not forthcoming after one week, but it should not exceed 4 tablespoons per day.
Bentonite Clay Reviews
Common liquid brands include Yerba Prima detox, Great Plains, and detox pint. These products have the most reviews and good ratings from customers in regard to healing acne, and detoxication among other health problems.
Aztec secret Indian healing clay has a rating of 4.4/5 and 87% of customers are willing to repurchase the brand. It is effective in getting rid of toxins and makeup from the face. However, it works best by mixing with honey and Apple cider vinegar.
Since it leaves your skin somehow dry, I suggest using a hydrating moisturizer after using bentonite clay products.
