Brazilian Clay For CP Soaps February 04 2022, 0 Comments
My soaps were never classically beautiful. So in order to showcase my beautiful, sustainable, fair trade Brazilian clay, I commissioned soaps from a customer who is a spectacular soap maker.
Her recipe is very light made with clear/white oils/butters and uses 1 teaspoon of clay per 16 oz. of fats. She adds the clay to the lye water.
The amount of clay can be increased but watch out for false trace if you decide for a much higher amount of clay. The clay can also be mixed to the fats before adding the lye water or even at trace, the final color doesn't change much.
Clay ages well in soaps, with the color not changing much with time.
