Zion Health releases Adama Natural Clay Face Scrub formulated with montmorillonite clay and ground walnut shells now available to consumers nationwide at select Whole Food Stores, Rainbow Grocery, and select mass retailers.

Clay Remedies offer superior Natural Alternative to Skin Care Products.

Zion's natural Clay Scrub is made from a unique type of clay called Kanwa, well known for its magnetic anti-aging properties.

Zion Health introduces Adama Face Scrub formulated with edible montmorillonite (Kanwa) clay and ground walnut shells. The natural minerals in Kanwa clay are known to absorb toxins internally and on the skin. Kanwa clay is also a source of silica which is vital to the health of human skin, bones, teeth, hair, and connective tissues. Zion's Natural Face Scrub helps exfoliate and smooth dry, rough skin, prevent blackheads and toxic build up that leads to acne breakouts. Adama Face Scrub is available at Select Whole Foods Stores, Rainbow Grocery-S.F., Vitamin Adventure-Pleasant Hill., Apple Health Foods- Redwood City, Alameda Natural Grocery- CA., New Leaf- CA., Nature’s Corner Natural Market- New Jersey, Full of Life- Burbank, Pensacola Health Foods- Florida, Vitamin Express-S.F., and online at

Kanwa clay has been used by indigenous peoples in the Americas and Africa for centuries to treat maladies that include stomach ulcers, insect bites, wounds, and digestive illness. The healing properties found in the trace minerals in Kanwa clay provide a natural alternative to chemicals found in many manufactured health products.

Exfoliation is important because new skin cells are created in the skin’s lower layer, the dermis. Over time, they migrate to the skin’s surface and become more acidic and die. This leaves the skin feeling rough and dry. Exfoliation with a scrub that contains a gentle abrasive such as ground walnut shells, removes this outer layer, revealing newer skin beneath.

Research at the Arizona State University Center for infectious Diseases and Vaccinology in Tempe has found that clay appears to kill or substantially reduce the growth of harmful bacteria on the skin, including MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus). According to Shelley E. Haydel, an assistant professor and co-author of the study, “For hundreds of thousands of years, clays have been used for wound-healing and even gastrointestinal problems, and there are a lot of people out there who already use mud therapeutically, without really knowing how it's working. "The big deal with MRSA is that it starts out as a topical infection, but once it gets into the bloodstream, you get into a huge problem," Haydel observed. "So, while we're certainly not proposing to inject this directly into the bloodstream, we're hoping to stop that skin-to-blood transition from happening."

Marie Holmes, Zion Health Sales Manager, states,” A natural face scrub made with Kanwa clay and ground walnut shells should be used regularly by men and women alike. Kanwa clay is rich in trace minerals that serve as the ultimate anti-aging remedy. This unique type of clay not only absorbs toxins on the skin, but also helps regenerate new cell growth."
