Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Debbie! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this product. It's hard to tell if it was a bad batch or if something happened over the year and a half you have had the product, moisture affect the clays heavily. Though it sounds like you received Green Zeolite Clay, not the bentonite. We love our Bentonite Clay and the wonderful slip it adds to soap. As far as it sinking to the bottom that has to do more with the temperature of the melt and pour soap, not the clay/exfoliant/color you're trying to suspend. The key is pouring at a lower temperature, around 120 degrees F, to increase the viscosity of the soap. This combined with continual stirring will get you the results you want!
