Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) is an organic product comprised of tiny fossilized water plants. Diatomaceous Earth is a naturally occurring siliceous sedimentary mineral compound from microscopic skeletal remains of unicellular algae-like plants, called diatoms. These remains of microscopic one-celled plants (phytoplankton), diatoms, once lived in the oceans and lakes that covered the western part of the US and other parts of the world.
The composition of D.E. DE is approximately 3% magnesium, 33% silicon, 19% calcium, 5% sodium, 2% iron and many other trace minerals such as titanium, boron, manganese, copper and zirconium.
It is 100% non-toxic, no chemicals, all-natural product. D.E. is odor free, tasteless, and has an indefinite shelf life if kept dry.
