Smooth Slip
I know they talk about what great 'slip' properties this has, but I loved how it came out in a little shaving bar I made for legs. I hate razor burn, and wanted a sweet-smelling soap I could use, and man, this worked like a charm. Cannot believe what a difference it makes.

I love this clay, along with Kaolin for use in baking-soda free deodorants. Works like a charm.

I use Bentonite Clay to hold and help make the scent last longer. I mix it with my essential oils and then in with my base fats when they reach 100 degrees. I mix the lye water in around 120 degrees and mix until trace. This does have a darker color but the small amount I use, 1/8 of a tsp in a 40 oz loaf mold doesn't really effect the color all too much. Bentonite Clay is made from volcanic ash and has a lot of healthy skin properties. I really like using this in my soap.

I soaped a batch of men's soap/shaving soap with this clay. I liked it. It didn't seize my batch or come to trace too, quickly. When I made the first cut, my soap cut effortlessly. It was very smooth & I didn't see any ash on top at all. Not sure if that was because of the clay or not. But, I'll take it! :)
