It’s made from 100% Codex Food Grade Fossil Shell Flour.  DE is FDA-approved, all-natural and safe for animal consumption up to 2% of feed by weight.

How it Works

Earth is composed of diatoms, which are tiny fossilized shells of marine plants. Over time these algae-like plants form a naturally occurring siliceous compound containing minerals such as silicon, calcium, sodium, magnesium, and iron. When ground up these diatoms have the look and feel of talcum powder. However, at a microscopic level that is undetectable to humans, this powder has razor sharp edges.

Ultimately, DE works by dehydration. The diatom is composed mostly of air making it ideal for liquid or fluid absorption. Diatomaceous Earth quickly absorbs fluids.
