Calabash chalk, also known as “Nzu” or “Eko,” can come in different colors, including white and gray. The difference between the two colors is primarily due to the mineral content of the clay.
White calabash chalk is usually made from kaolin clay, which is a type of fine white clay that contains aluminum silicate. It is often used in cosmetics, particularly in skin care products, due to its gentle and absorbent qualities. Some people also consume white calabash chalk for cultural or spiritual reasons.
Gray calabash chalk, on the other hand, is usually made from a combination of clay and charcoal or ash. The charcoal or ash gives the clay a gray color and may also provide additional health benefits, such as detoxifying properties. Gray calabash chalk is often consumed for its medicinal properties and is used to treat various ailments, including digestive issues and diarrhea.
It is important to note that the consumption of calabash chalk, regardless of its color, can be associated with health risks due to the potential presence of harmful substances, such as lead. If you are considering using calabash chalk for any reason, it is important to speak with a healthcare professional first and to choose products from reputable sources.
