Natural Sodium Bentonite powder

Bentonex WS - Cosmetic grade

Bentonex WS is a high quality natural sodium bentonite, milled and air classified to give a consistent fine powder. The feedstock clay is imported from a deposit in the Rio Negro province of Argentina. Natural Sodium Bentonite is used in the manufacture of cosmetics and other specialist applications.


properties of Natural Bentonite Clay:
  • CAS No: 1302-78-9
  • EC No: 215-288-5
  • Other names: sodium Bentonite, Montmorillonite, Aluminosilicate of sodium
  • Appearance: solid powder
  • Colour: off white
  • Odour: mild
  • Bulk Density: 800 - 900 Kg/m3

 

When bentonite is mixed with water, the water molecules will enter between the clay plates, forcing them apart. While the plates are dispersed, the bentonite slurry becomes quite fluid. However, on standing the particles become oriented with the negative surfaces of the plates being attracted to the positive edges. Viscosity increases and a gel is formed – a reversible effect known as thixotropy.

A typical empirical formula for bentonite is:

(Al, Fe0.67 Mg0.33) Si4O10(OH)2Na,Ca0.33
