Yellow “Silt” Clay – This Yellow Clay derives its earthy yellow color from iron oxides naturally present in the clay. Because of its color, the clay may stain fabric. This clay is fantastic as a mask base or in a cleansing paste. In CP soap, it is a lovely yellow (though as it is a clay, tends to absorb the water in your CP recipe so don’t use any clay for color if discounting your water).Ingredients:Botanical Name: Kaolin ClayCommon Name: Kaolin Clay
I used just a touch (1 t dispersed in 1 T water) for a batch of cold pour soap and poured them into the 12 bar rectangular mold. The amount I used gave the perfect pastel color I wanted for honey scented soap. I will definitely use again!
As I mentioned in precious reviews, I am really just getting into using clays as colorants in cp soap and love the results. In my experience so far this clay produces a nicer color than depicted above, more of a brighter yellow-gold.
