Diatomite is a porous substance which can effectively absorb water in an instant. Once the bath mat has absorbed a certain amount of water , it will naturally release the moisture as it breathes . Because of these qualities the surface of this bath mat remains naturally smooth and dry.
Diatomite is a type of fossil sediment . Its pores and holes allow it to breathe , and therefore makes the product different from those made of fibers , in that it constantly maintains a dry surface , making it difficult for bacteria and mold to grow .

Diatom shells have many pores and are known for their ability to absorb and release water ( humidity control ) as well as their ability to control odors. The natural materials used in Diatomite Bath Mat allows it not only to dry quickly but also to combat mold and dust mites.
