China clay (Kaolin, white clay or Aluminum Silicate) is the mildest of all clays and is used in cosmetic masks and soaps for sensitive skin as well as for dry skin. Does not expand with increasing water content. When adding clay to soap, do so just before adding fragrances, stirring the clay into a small amount of soap and then adding back to the soap pot or mix with the water. Usage rates would vary depending on what one is trying to accomplish, but using too much clay can make a soap gritty. Kaolin clay is also used as a scent fixative. This is a fine, fluffy clay that has natural absorbency properties and is frequently found in body powders, body packs, skin care products, and deodorants.
To make a facial clay, add distilled water to a small amount of clay. Other additives you may add to a facial mask instead of distilled water are plain yogurt, honey, liquid vegetable glycerine, whipped egg whites or mayonnaise. Apply with clean fingers to clean skin, let dry 15 to 20 minutes, rinse off with warm water, pat skin dry, repeat once a week if necessary. Clay masks will draw out impurities and toxins and may help with acne and similar skin conditions.

Clay for DIY Deodorant
I love to use this to get rid of toxins inside my deodorant and helps with keeping your face nice and clean and free of blemishes.

Used in Soap
As mentioned previously I purchased a few different clays to experiment with making masks and for use in soap. Since this is white it is perfect when I want to add color in soaps. Also makes a nice mask when mixed with banana powder.

Very Gentle Clay
Gentle Clay is great for a wider range of skin types which makes it nice. Not over-drying at all. Great for smoothing and softening bath soaks. I add a little bit in with specialty bath bombs.
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.
Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.

EO's in 5 and 10 lbs. - heavy duty plastic container w/pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the container at least 2 months. EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail.
