Bramble Berry's Yellow Silt Clay has now been deleted so the rest of our stock is to clear!

This Yellow Clay derives its earthy yellow colour from iron oxides naturally present in the clay.  Because of its colour, the clay may stain fabric and hair so it is not recommended for hair masks.  This clay is fantastic as a mask base or in a cleansing paste.  Silt Clay mixes well with white clays and this adds to its mineral content but also lightens the colour.  

You can see Soap Queen's Honey Bee Cold Process Tutorial Here and a Marbled Hot Process Soap Tutorial Here, both include this clay as a colourant

To use in Regular Soap Bars as Colourant:

Cold Processed Soap:  For a pale honey colour, 1 teaspoon clay hydrated in 1 tablespoon liquid per kilo of soap, 1 dessertspoon to 1 tablespoon per kilo of soap for mid colour tone (swirling will use less).  Mix into a slurry with either water or thinly traced soap before adding to soap prior to Fragrance or Essential Oils.

Melt & Pour Soap:  1 teaspoon per 500g of soap base (all types).  Mix the clay to a slurry or paste with some water, Glycerine or Sodium Lactate Plus and gently stir into the melted soap.
