Hudson Resources' Attapulgite clay and Diatomaceous earth raw ore  have been used in countless products across a diverse spectrum of applications and markets, from pet care, oil spills, jet fuel refining, animal insecticide, sanitation, pharmaceutical and agriculture, amongst others.

The applications are ever-expanding, with research, development and interest from all walks of life trialing our premium absorptive minerals singularly or blended form, for everyday and specialty uses. Hobbyists and professionals alike are enthusiastic about unlocking the natural benefits of our premium attapulgite and diatomaceous earth raw ore.

"....from earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust..."

Attapulgite clay consists primarily of hydrous aluminum silicates (clay minerals) of varying composition.

Diatomaceous earth are sedimentary rock composed of diatoms, that formed in a freshwater lake over thousands of years.

Our Attapulgite clay and Diatomaceous earth raw ore,  have the potential to provide natural solutions for existing and new applications in a way that nature intended - ecologically sustainability.
