Frequently asked questions

DE is a naturally occurring product that can't be patented.  That means it is of little interest to the drug companies.  Many individuals buying DE are doing so because of referrals from family or friends.  DE doesn't generate enough profits to pay for the advertising and marketing that supports OTC and prescription drugs.

NO.  There is confusion because Food Grade DE and Commercial Filtering DE have the same name.  Filter grade DE is heated to over 1,000 degrees and then fluxed with additional chemicals to crystallize it.  These additional step makes it a valuable filtering agent, but also cause it to be dangerous to people and pets.  The World Heath Organization states that DE needs to be less than 2% crystalline silica to be generally considered safe. Filter grade DE is 60% crystalline silica. Filter grade DE is dangerous and should be handled with extreme caution.  All Lumino DE is less than 1\2 of 1% crystalline silica and all other sediments that are considered unsafe by the FDA are below harmful limits. This is four times more than the recommended maximum for safety. Lumino DE is a fine powder, and should be used with caution, as any powder should be, by those with respiratory complications, such as asthma.

There are two schools of thought on how this works. The first is that it kills internally the same as externally, that is by absorbing lipids from the waxy outer layer of the insect's exoskeleton, causing them to dehydrate. The second, and the one we tend to favor, is that the alkaline ph level, combined with the high concentration of minerals, drives the parasites out of the body looking for more favorable surroundings.
