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 the Brazillian Clay Sampler mainly to try the purple clay. I used the yellow first in a sugar scrub. It came out with a beautiful metallic gold.
I love this yellow color in cold process soap. It is a beautiful golden yellow when gelled and a muted yellow not gelled. I was also able to make a nice orange color by mixing it with madder root powder.
I have been playing around with this clay as a natural colorant in clear and opaque M&P soap and bath bombs. It is amazingly beautiful!! It has inspired me to return to my roots of using essential oils as the primary source of scent (among other benefits) for my recipes. Do wish it wasn't so expensive but, thankfully, it doesn't take much to get a bright color.
i used this color as well as brazilian pink and brazilian purple to color some bath truffles as well as my castile baby soap and it came out so beautifully. i just hope that it doesn't have any drying affect on skin because these Brazilian clays are some of my favorite natural colorants!
This clay gives me a shade of yellow unlike any other colorant. I got it as part of the sampler pack, and it's one of my favorites. In CP soap, I prefer this color at the greater amount (2 t. per pound of soap) in soap that hasn't gelled, but it's a matter of personal preference. You can have fun experimenting with all of the Brazilian clays!
