There are great benefits of kaolin clay in soap as well as other natural bath products.

This clay, also known as China Clay, White Clay, China White clay, Chalk and White Dirt, is chemically composed of Kaolinite (97%), silicon oxide, aluminum oxide, iron oxide and titanium oxide.

Benefits of kaolin clay in soap,

and other bath products include being very mild, improving blood circulation to the skin, exfoliating and cleansing.  This white clay also detoxifies at the skin level without drying the skin, unlike other clays. Its gentleness makes it a great additive in products for dry or sensitive skin.

Some of the products that this gentle white clay can be found is in facial products, natural deodorants, poultices, scrubs, mineral makeup, and body powders.

Any facial clay mask is flexible. This gentle clay is perfect for sensitive or dry skin.

Your basic clay mask recipe is:

  • 3 tablespoons of clay
  • few drops of essential oils for therapeutic value - optional
  • 1 tsp to 1 tablespoon of any special additive such as yogurt, aloe vera gel or honey
  • Mix well, add clean water for a better consistency if needed
    apply a thin layer, leave for 10 - 15 minutes, rinse thoroughly to remove, wash face as normal, apply moisturizer.

Making a natural shaving soap is one of the best benefits of this clay in soap. The minerals in the clay provide a barrier between the razor and your skin. Start with 1 tablespoon for every 4 pounds of soap base, and mix in a small container first, then add that back to the pot.  At trace, add your clay, then fragrances, then a superfatting oil for extra moisturizing.  Because of the lesser drying abilities of this clay, you may not have to add extra moisturizers, but I would add some.
