Clay - Nude French




Our Nude French Clay is a natural beige colour and is ideal for to formulate colourless Caucasian skin care and mineral makeup.  It's a mild clay, and can be blended with other mild clays for sensitive skin.

It may be added to soap as a natural colorant and produces a gentle, earthy beige colour when used in soaps. Suitable for facial masques, scrubs, etc.  Clay when used in Bath Bombs really helps make a rock hard fizzy.
