Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is not earth or dirt. It is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one-celled aquatic plants (diatoms). Over the eons, as these diatoms fossilized, they retained their tubular shape and holes. Their shape and hardness produce extremely pure and consistent DE.
DE works with a physical or mechanical action, not a chemical one. Because of this, there is no danger of a reaction with other products or concerns about overdosing. Pests and parasites cannot build an immunity to it.
There are different grades of DE in the marketplace. Of the 600 deposits in the U.S., only four are considered Food-Grade by the FDA.
Lumino Pure Fresh Water Diatomaceous Earth is almost pure white and consists of 89-94% silicon dioxide plus 28 trace minerals. The silica in Lumino DE is amorphous. This is silica in its naturally occurring state. It is a trace mineral every mammal on the planet needs for survival.
