Macromin Kentish Minerals


Key Facts

  • Natural Bentonite Cat Litter forms medium hard clumps when wetted, and is ideal for use as a cat litter.  
  • The clumps can be removed easily, leaving a clean litter tray just needing to be topped up. 
  • The tray remains fresh and free from odours.
  • A litter tray filled with Natural Bentonite Cat Litter packs 50% more absorbency than when filled with a lightweight Cat Litter.
  • The majority of the bentonite sold by Macromin Ltd is 100% sun-dried, using no fossil fuel in the drying process.
  • Shipping to Northern European markets makes use of containers that would otherwise be travelling empty, thus further reducing the carbon footprint of Macromin's Natural Bentonite Clumping Cat Litter compared to many of our competitors.
  • Consumers in the UK and Ireland tend to prefer Natural Bentonite over Activated Bentonite Clumping Cat Litter.
