Additional Information
White Kaolin Clay is a cosmetic clay used in cold process soap, bath bombs and masks. This clay can be used on normal, dry and sensitive skin because it does not draw oils from the skin.

"I've been using this in my bath bombs for strength and hardness and it works great. But I've noticed on the bath bombs that are not colored with any micas and are intended to be white, that they are turning a brownish color. Could this be caused by the kaolin clay?

"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?"
