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 bought this as part of the Brazilian clay sample and must say this is my absolute favorite color of the bunch so far. I used it in cold process soap as a swirl, with lavender fragrance oil and lavender fragrance buds on top. It came out a beautiful deep plum color. I figured it would come out a sort of dirty mauve, because that was the color of the clay, but it is absolutely gorgeous. I will be buying this again (as well as the other Brazilliam clays which are definitely beautiful.). I want to stay away from Micas for now because I prefer a more natural color. If you are looking for a beautiful deep purple color, I would recommend this. I think I used it at a ratio of 2 teaspoons clay and 2 Tablespoons distilled water for one pound. Also insulated for a full gell phase as it was recommended to get a more vibrant color.
This is a beautiful earthy shade of puple in my cold process soap. Clays are quickly becoming my favorite type of colorant. Plus it adds beneficial qualities to soap.
I use this clay in my cold and hot process soaps, I love the pretty purple color, and that is natural.
The muted shade of the Purple is absolutely gorgeous. I'm looking forward to playing with its potential for Mother's day projects
So far I have used in clear and opaque M&P and bath bombs and I am in love!! It creates amazing purple tones and contributes to the overall quality of everything it's in. GREAT lather in the soap and even though I haven't used the bath bombs yet I know my skin will appreciate it's wonderful attributes. Pairing it with my favorite - BB's Hungarian Lavender EO. Only wish it wasn't so expensive.
