CW Apothecary is a wholesale supplier of 100% Organic Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. It is a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock that can be crumbled into a fine white to off-white powder. Depending on the granularity, this powder can have an abrasive feel, similar to pumice powder. Diatomaceous earth consists of the fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled microalgae. It is used as a filtration aid, mild abrasive in products including metal polishes and toothpaste, mechanical insecticide, and a natural ingredient in cosmetics like deodorant.
Uses of Diatomaceous Earth
Diatomaceous Earth is used to remove unwanted material from drinking water. It is also used as a filler or to prevent formation of lumps in foods, medicine, paints and plastics, and pet litter. It is used to clean up spills or for insulation in industry, as well as to scrub things. It is effective against any insect that has an exoskeleton. This includesfleas, mites, lice, ants, millipedes, earwigs, cockroaches, silverfish, bed bugs, crickets, centipedes, pill bugs, sow bugs, most beetles, fungus gnat larvae, and some grubs.
