Description Ingredients & Technical Information

Kaolin Clay - Hydrous is a fluffy grayish - white clay also known as china. It is the purest of the clays.(See Kaolin Anhydrous for a whiter consistency and more purified Kaolin)

Kaolin Clay is known for it's absorbing and healing properties, along with it's ability to soften the skin. This clay actually drinks in the liquids, which speeds up the drying process without any loss of fragrance or other oils. You can omitted using any type of salt in some recipes by simply replacing it with kaolin clay.

Soap making: It adds a soft, slippery feel to soap bars. Adding this to your soap will also make shaving so much smoother for both men & women.

Bath bombs: Add kaolin clay to your bath bombs and they will cure more quickly. It will also reduce, if not eliminate cracking. By replacing half of your cornstarch with kaolin clay, bath bombs will cure in less than 24 hours and they will be rock hard, with little to no cracks.

Makeup: For handmade makeup, this is a must in powder foundations. Kaolin clay will absorb 1 1/2 times its own weight.

Eye Shadows: This clay is great to add to your mattes to give them better slip, or to tone down your oxides. It will also help to really spread your mica a long way.

Facial Masks: Use purified water to moisten your clay, you will only need a small amount. Add water to clay until it is a nice paste consistency and then add skin safe aromatherapy essential oils or infused water in place of purified water. This type of facial mask should only be used once a week on normal skin and up to 2x a week on oily skin complexions.
