Vulkamin Powder

Vulkamin® is volcanic lava that never reached the surface and therefore oxygen. It is a silicate rock and it’s mineralogical peculiarity is that it is rich in zeolites, which have a special hollow honeycomb structure. This gives Vulkamin® a large active surface area which is able to absorb large amounts of moisture. It, therefore, has a fast drying action, that quickly raises pH and denies microbes the moisture they need to survive.

Due to the hollow honeycomb structure Vulkamin® is silky soft making it safe on human hands as well as cows teats.

Additionally Vulkamin® is naturally rich in nutrients, trace elements and soluble silicic acids meaning it also makes a great soil conditioner.
