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.

I used this to color my gingerbread man soap this last Christmas and it is wonderful. It adds a wonderful feeling to the latter of the soap and does not stain. It gives a wonderful soft color and is so fine that the soap is not speckled but smooth in color.
I enjoy using this clay to give my soaps some natural color :)
