Characteristics
Good to reduce oil on skin, acne and pimples, not for internal use.
Very good drawing properties. Used to draw out oils and toxins from the skin.

Swells in water to form a thixotropic gel.

Add 2grams sodium bentonite to 50ml of water to a make a paste. More or less water to get to the desired consistency.

Provides electrical conduction properties in suspension or paste form. When bentonite becomes moist it behaves like plastic putty.

"Electrical conductivity or specific conductance measures a material's ability to conduct an electric current. It is commonly represented by the Greek letter ? (sigma), but ? (kappa) (especially in electrical engineering) or ? gamma are also occasionally used. Its SI unit is siemens per metre (S?m-1) and CGSE unit is reciprocal second (s-1)."
