"The Wholesale Supplies Plus article Getting Started: Coloring Melt & Pour Soap Base says that "You can use clay at 1/2 to 1 teaspoon per pound of MP Soap Base." If that's the recommended usage, then why does the Mens Shave Soap call for 2 tablespoons of Kaolin Clay per 8 ounces of soap? Perhaps it's a typo. To me, two tablespoons per 8 ounces of soap base seems like a lot. What are the correct proportions for using Kaolin in M&P soap?"

COMMENTS:  I tried the white kaolin clay last year after using a number of other things to help harden my bath bombs. I absolutely love the way my bath bombs are turning out now! They are no longer soft and crumbly and perform well when used. White kaolin clay is one of my main ingredients now for making bath bombs.
