Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a natural, abrasive powder from the fossilized remains of ancient algal shells called Diatoms or Phytoplankton. The Diatoms living in the waterways absorb minerals and elements from water enabling them to ‘build‘ their tiny shells. Consequentially, the fossilized remains have captured and contain the 15 trace minerals used to form the shell. As they die the microscopic diatoms drop to the bottom of the waterways and form deposits of sediment. These sedimentary deposits are later mined, milled, dried, and bagged creating Diatomaceous Earth or more commonly known as DE. It is widely used internationally for a host of industrial, agricultural, and horticultural applications.
