Do you do free samples?please let me know thanks!
Hi crazy 4stuff,

Unfortunately we don't offer samples as all our clays have already been packaged for full sale. Also, it works out cheaper in terms of postage to make a full order.

Hi MavuSeller, I have to ask this - and I am sure that others are thinking are same:

Why is it that you only receive such small shipments? And why does it seem so difficult to get certain types?

From what I have read and seen on youtube clay is easily obtainable in several African countries so I truly don't see why, once you go into business and suppliers have been sourced, there is a problem with availability. It can really be frustrating for those of us that do not have easy access to clay that there is such competition and a race to get it.

Your reply is much appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi guys!

I want to discuss side effects of ingesting clay/chalk with you. What about diarrhea, stomach aches and.... flatulences ? Be frank. Thanks

I personal have not experience this myself. I think bcz u do not consume clay every minute of the day or over indulge. I think if you eat it w/o food you might experience flatulence and stomach aches. Someone had mention that it is different for everyone. I wonder if different clay react differently to the body. Also if it contains this like lead might be the body way of trying to remove it.
