Black Brazilian Clay

Beautiful dark color, though more brown in soap. Love the "slip."

Creates a Good Black Color

I needed some black soap for a project I am working on. I add the Black Brazilian Clay (BBC) first to see how the batter looked with just the clay. It was almost as black as the Activated Charcoal (AC) gives me, not quite as black but almost. I went ahead and add AC to get it up to the black color needed. The acceleration of trace was minimal and the soap turned out great. I will definitely be using this in the future with my darker soaps I want clay in and I will purchase BBC again. Update: I have added a picture of a test batch of soap I made using the various clays I had on hand. The second layer down is made with BBC. I mixed 1.25 tsp of BBC with 1 tbsp of distilled water. I added this mixture to approximately 6 oz of CP soap batter. It came out fairly black with just a hint of brown. For comparison I have added a picture of the striped soap up against a block of CP soap I made with AC and BBC. You can definitely see the brownish tinge in the one that only uses BBC for colorant in the comparison picture.

Silky Soap!

Black Brazilian Clay is now one of my new favorites to use in my activated charcoal soap. Adding it gives a lovely silky slip to the finished bar.

Nice Smokey brown in CP Soap

I absolutely love this clay from Nurture Soap! It is a Smokey or charcoal brown in cold-processed soap. I often add cacao powder or activated charcoal to get variations or a more vibrant color. Gel it and WOW just WOW! I have tried all these Brazilian clays from Nurture Soap and 100% happy, well price could be more palatable for sure. Still I have to say these clays are wonderful!
