I have not had a chance to use the French clay yet and I intend on using it in hot process soap but from all I've read I'm excited to try it as a facial mask and muscle ache detox. The color is beautiful and csnt wait to use in my soap. I've ordered several products from BA and alot of fragrances and have never been disappointed with any products. Quality and prices can't be beat.
So I purchased this clay to use as a natural colorant in my CP soap. I always used sea clay for a green color but I decided to try this clay to see if I could get a brighter green. I am so happy with how it turned out in my CP soap. I have used it in Whipped soap (floating soap) and the shade of green it gives is just lovely. It's lighter in hue than sea clay and definitely has a beautiful natural green color.
I cannot say how pleased I am with the quality of this clay. I had multiple items on this order and found the quality of the items, packaging, and promptness of shipping excellent. Bulk Apothecary has become my go-to place for my soaping additives.
This is high quality cosmetic clay. Love it!!
Love this clay! It has a lovely smooth texture and soft color. It makes a wonderful facial mask alone, but I also love using it in cp soaps.
The clay came in a very nice reusable bag, unlike what some companies send you. I have ordered French Green Clay from many companies and none have sent me clay as good as this. 10/10 would recommend.
We added some of this French Green Clay to our Olive Oil Soap and it made luxurious skin softening soap with an amazing natural green color. It was very easy to work with and exceeded our expectations. We will be back for more once we have used up our first batch.
I have used clays for soaps and they make the best soaps. I made a charcoal/green clay mask and my skin was very smooth after. Love it!
