VANATURAL® Bentonite Clay
This rapidly hydrating, water-washed bentonite clay is a pure and natural suspension stabilizer, emulsion optimizer and rheology modifier for all topical products.
VANATURAL Bentonite is particularly suited for creams, lotions, suspensions and other personal care products marketed as organic or natural.
VANATURAL bentonite is in full compliance with the rules established by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP). The NOP provides regulations and guidance for raw materials used in products claimed as organic or to contain organic ingredients (7 CFR 205.600 though 205.607). Bentonite is listed as an allowed component in such products. VANATURAL bentonite is therefore recommended for use in organic personal care products.
Vanderbilt has prepared a brochure providing information on VANATURAL as well as formulas containing VANATURAL. Please click on the links below.

Over the last several years, the personal care product industry has developed a growing interest in offering products labeled "Organic" or "Containing Organic Ingredients". To address this interest, R.T. Vanderbilt Company, Inc. has developed two products for use as rheological modifiers and as formula stabilizers in such labeled products. In the tradition of the VEEGUM® line of functional clay products, VEEGUM Pure and VANATURAL clays provide the quality and consistency customers have long expected, yet are positioned to comply with requirements for raw materials being used in personal care products labeled as "Organic" or "Containing Organic Ingredients".
As part of its interest in "Organic" business, R.T. Vanderbilt Company, Inc. has sought affiliation with groups having similar interests. One of these is the Organic Trade Association (OTA), of which Vanderbilt is a member. The OTA is "...a membership-based business association that focuses on the organic business community in North America. OTA's mission is to promote and protect the growth of organic trade to benefit the environment, farmers, the public and the economy". Click to view the OTA web site.
R.T. Vanderbilt Company, Inc. does not claim OTA endorsement of its products.
