Shelf life: Indefinite when stored properly
Storage: Keep sealed in a cool, dark place. Heat, oxygen, moisture, and light degrade the product.
May be used in soaps, cleansers, masks, and many other formulations. It may be useful as a thickener in some recipes, or as a mild abrasive. It is prone to clumping when mixed with liquid— for smoothest blending, whisk slowly into liquid rather than adding liquid to the clay. To avoid waste product, start with small measurements and incrementally work your way up. Mix with water for a simple poultice. Not for internal use. Avoid inhalation.
