Our Brazilian Clays are a great way to add all natural color to your handmade projects. These naturally colored clays do not contain any artificial dyes or pigments. The various shades are achieved by variations of the minerals and oligoelements found in the soil in the different regions of Brazil.

These clays are very stable in cold process soap and would be a wonderful addition to clay masks and creams. Although we used 2 tsp brazilian clay per pound of soap in the picture above, a prominent color can be achieved with as little as 1 tsp per pound of soap. The most vibrant color will be seen in soap that has gone through gel-phase.

Usage Rate in Cold Process Soap:
 1 to 2 teaspoons of clay per pound of soap.

INCI: Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Montmorillonite, Kaolin, Mica

My first try with this clay was using Extra Virgin Olive Oil at 1.5 tsp of clay in CP soap. My recipe is 1.5 pounds of fat. The color is closer to mocha than purple, not good. Per the advice below (THANK YOU), I picked up some regular Olive Oil (less yellow than EVOO) and used .5 tsp of this clay. The result, a pale lavender that I can live with. In fact, I may try 1 tsp the next go round. The moral of the story, this clay will give you a truer purple if you use whiter oils. It's a good clay, I recommend it but it may require some testing to get the right color. That's part of the fun I suppose:)

Pretty Dark Pink Color
I love this colorant, it mixes well, I use either vegetable glycerin or alcohol to mix.. I have added to CP, HP and melt and pour soaps. I used about 1/2 tablespoon in each of the about soaps at a ratio of 1 pound.

Great for Pink Sangria M&P
I used this to make a Pink Sangria using the BB clear melt and pour base. The color was a perfect fit.

Nice Natural Purple
I was getting some rather muddy purple results in CP, then I discovered the secret was to use pure olive oil - not EVOO - and then my soap base color was more white and the purple looked much better! I love this stuff, it makes my lavender soap beautiful!

Lovely natural colorant
First off, if you are wondering how much you get in 1 oz, I measured approx. 9 teaspoons. I wanted to use this clay to color a batch of lavender bars. My oils/butters contain quite a bit of olive and cocoa, but even then I got a pretty rustic or antique looking purple. Going to try it next in a 100% coconut oil bar to get a nice vibrant purple.
