Kaolin White Clay


Kaolin White Clay is useful on normal, dry and sensitive skin. It's a very mild clay that is good as a thickening agent. It does not draw oils from the skin. It's a great addition to your bath fizzy formula for hardening. Kaolin White Clay is commonly used in soap, face & body masks and bath fizzies. All natural. Cosmetic grade. Particle size: 3 microns.

INCI: Kaolin

Blend amount as desired into formula. When adding to a liquid base, you may need to mix this with a small amount of water to prevent clumping.
Recommended usage:
Soap: 3%
Masks: 50-75%
Bath Fizzies: 1-3%


Excellent Kaolin Clay is a must have for CP and Bath Bombs and Candoras is great quality and reasonable price.


I am wondering, what do you recommend for a thickener for liquid shampoo (hot process).

I was looking for Hydroxyethylcellulose (DEC) but it is not coming up in my search of your site.

Thank you.

Hi Darlene,

Have you tried salt or Xanthan Gum? These may do the trick for you.

A great hardening agent for bath bombs. This is a good price and Candora is always quick to ship.
