www.naturesgardencandles.com/kaolin-clay-powder-cosmetics.htmlWhat is Kaolin Clay Used For?

Kaolin Clay powder is one of Nature’s Garden most popular cosmetic additives we offer.  It can be utilized in a variety of different ways. What is kaolin clay used for? Kaolin Clay, also called China Clay, is a white clay that is found in the soils of hot, moist climates. This clay is perfect for those with sensitive skin or those who are prone to acne breakouts. Kaolin can be used to create mineral makeup such as foundation, eye shadow, and blush. China Clay is also a wonderful thickening agent that is a perfect ingredient for bath bombs. Kaolin Clay is a perfect addition to sugar scrubs, salt scrubs and facial masks. Like most clays, Kaolin helps cleanse the skin and remove toxins. If you are creating soap, this clay is useful in being a fragrance fixative.

Below, we will talk about the many ways you can utilize Kaolin Clay powder in many creations. We will also share some popular recipes that use kaolin clay. You may find that if you are having trouble with a recipe you are using, or just wanting to find a new ingredient to enhance an old recipe, give the following a read. You might just find what you have been looking for!

 

What is Kaolin Clay Used For: Using Kaolin Clay for Acne

Many have found that kaolin clay is wonderful for acne and those who have sensitive skin. It is the mildest of clays and is perfect for soaking up oil. Kaolin Clay powder can be used on various types of skin conditions. Whether its rashes or inflammation from break-outs, Kaolin is very good at soothing irritated skin.

 

What is Kaolin Clay Used For?: Tea Tree Soap RecipeWhat is Kaolin Clay Used For: Tea Tree Soap Recipe

Kaolin Clay Powder can be used alone or in combination with other products to help lessen acne breakouts.  Our Tea Tree Soap is a perfect example. Not only is the Kaolin perfect for oily skin and acne breakouts, but Tea Tree oil is also beneficial for these type of skin ailments. Kaolin helps with balancing the oils in the skin. Tea Tree Essential Oil is perfect for penetrating those clogged up pores, loosening up dirt and will help control and possibly prevent breakouts. This soap is quick and simple to make using our Hemp melt and pour soap base as your starting point.

 

What is Kaolin Clay Used For: Using Kaolin Clay for Soaps

Kaolin is rich in potassium, titanium and silicon. These elements help to produce the formation of collagen. When wet, Kaolin is smooth, silky and creamy which in turn, will give your soap the same feeling. Kaolin is also helpful in retaining moisture in the body, soaks up dirt and toxins. Your skin will feel deeply cleansed without that tight, dry feeling you can get from regular soap.

We said in the above paragraph that there are a few good reasons to use Kaolin Clay in any type of soap recipe. It can be used as a fragrance fixative. This may help during any cold or hot process soaping as creating soap from scratch can be rough on fragrance oils. Another good reason for using Kaolin Clay is that when you create a paste with it, this will help you to create swirls in melt and pour soap, adding some decorative flair to your soap creations. It is also a good natural colorant to help give some white color to your soap if you wish.

 

What is Kaolin Clay Used For?: Swirled Melt and Pour Soap RecipeWhat is Kaolin Clay Used For: Swirled Melt and Pour Soap Recipe

We have 2 fun and easy soap recipes that incorporate Kaolin Clay. Our Swirled Melt and Pour soap uses our Cocoa Butter melt and pour soap. We have used 3 powders for the colored swirls. Rose Clay Powder, Cocoa Powder (Yes! I am talking about the chocolate cocoa powder) and Kaolin. Our fragrance oil is Chocolate Covered Strawberries, which smells just like the decadent dessert!

 

What is Kaolin Clay Used For? Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap RecipeWhat is Kaolin Clay Used For: Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap Recipe

The second recipe is our Moonlight Tuberose Swirled Soap. This soap also starts off with a melt and pour soap base, this time we chose Yogurt. This soap has 4 swirled colors in it, all using clay powders to help get those fun swirls! We used the colors of the fragrance oil picture for inspiration of this soap. Moonlight Tuberose fragrance oil was used to give this soap its scent. A soft, feminine scent that smells of apples, pears, lily of the valley, jasmine and of course tuberose. 

 

What is Kaolin Used For: Creating Bath Bombs

Kaolin Clay is a good, gentle additive to any type of bath bombs, fizzies or bath cookies. The addition of Kaolin is useful in the fact that it not only a fragrance fixative, but it adds natural color and hardness to the bath bomb.

This fun recipe for Christmas Bath Cookies is a sure way to get your kids to dunk themselves in the bathtub! These bath cookies are quick to whip up and there’s no baking required!

We topped these bath time confections off with some whipped soap frosting and a touch of candy sprinkles! The whole thing is scented with our yummy, sweet smelling Christmas Cookies fragrance oil. These cookies look so real, you may have to warn people not to take a bite!

What is Kaolin Used For?: Monster Bath Cookies RecipeWhat is Kaolin Used For: Monster Bath Cookies Recipe

Another simple recipe using your basic bath bomb ingredients of Baking Soda, citric acid, Kaolin Clay and Coconut Oil. We chose a more “manly” fragrance oil because no boy wants to smell flowery!

Body Powder is an excellent way to feeling fresh and clean when there’s no time for a bath or shower.

Body Powder is actually very easy to make as you will see in our Vanda Orchid Body Powder recipe. Everybody loves all-natural body products. It’s important to know what the ingredients are and if they can cause any type of irritation. This powder recipe is a perfect example. We used cornstarch, Kaolin Clay Powder and Arrowroot Powder. All three of these ingredients are very natural, and light. They will help absorb body odors and wetness without leaving your skin feeling cake-y or heavy. The fragrance oil we chose for this recipe was Vanda Orchid. A lovely, light scent of berries, orchids and green accents.

 

What is Kaolin Clay Used For: Silky Shimmering Body Powder RecipeWhat is Kaolin Clay Used For: Silky Shimmering Body Powder Recipe

This recipe for Silky Shimmering Body Powder recipe is lovely, light and feminine powder. We used a couple ingredients that are not usually found in a traditional powder. Cocoa butter and Acacia Gum Powder. Along with cornstarch and Kaolin powder to help absorb odors and keep you feeling dry, cocoa butter will give your skin some extra moisturizing. Acacia Gum Powder is an all-natural product that is normally used as a thickener. When used in powders, it helps keep the powder loose and free of clumps. Our fragrance oil, Lovely in Lace, is the perfect addition to this recipe. This fragrance smells of a lush bouquet of green florals and spicy carnation that veils a base of sensual musks and sheer patchouli to create a romantic, feminine scent.

Face Lifting Mask

DIY Face Lifting Mask TipsDIY Face Lifting Mask Tips

Using a face lifting mask for a truly excellent face lift at home will help you cleanse your pores and refresh your skin in a wonderful way. It will take some work but you can really enjoy this after a long and relatively tiresome day. You will need to make use of a blender when you prepare the mask, but all in all it happens to be a fairly easy thing to make if you have the time and inclination. All you need to create your masterpiece are the following materials:

  • A ripe, peeled banana and half an apple should be placed inside your blender, as well as about a teaspoon worth of lemon juice as well and roughly four teaspoons of honey. Once you have this ready, blend it into a smooth mix and pour it into a bowl. You should add some boiled and cooled oatmeal into the mix to complete its transformation. You can use some of the mix to spread it on your face, but you will need to ensure you have the right level of thickness on it to completely ensure you can benefit from using it. You can cover the mix and leave it for later in your fridge to cool down.
  • Once you have that done, you will need to move on to the next step on your list,  properly cleaning your face and finishing the job of keeping your pores freshened up. You can do that by using a cloth soaked in some hot water. Squeeze it out and spread it over your face, allowing its moisture to open your pores, letting the mask do its job more effectively overall. Doing so will help you a great deal as you will notice after you’re done using it.
  • Once the previous step is complete, use a dry and soft cloth to pat you face dry, then spread the mask around your face using your fingers. Since your mixture will harden as it dries out, you should not massage too hard. Do so just enough to ensure the exfoliation of your skin, allowing the mask to clean your face more effectively. The mask will need to stay on your face for the next twenty minutes if you want to easily move on to your next step.
  • Rinsing the mask when you’re done with some lukewarm water should allow you to almost finish the job. You can also use cold water, ice cubes and something similar that happens to be cold to close your pores when you’re done. Pat your face dry and you will deal with this last step.
  • You may also decide to use some toner after you’re done with your face mask, as it will help you remove the residue left after you’re done with it. You will need to restore the pH balance of your skin, so use some cotton balls and apply it to your face to avoid it drying out in the end. Once all of this is complete you can focus on kitchen cleaning and floor cleaning if you managed to spill some of the mask on the floor by accident.

Creative Outlet Earning Extra Income


This entry was posted in bath and body, bath products, bath salts, body butter, candle making supplies, cosmetic supplies, Fragrance Oils, Natures Garden and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Lori Barrow, Windsor Hills Wicks & Lather

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I’m a stay-at-home mom and needed an outlet for my creativity that would earn extra income. I was working on the lines that I would carry for a candle and soap business when our daughter got sick in 2010.  At that time, I started taking a closer look at the products that I was bringing into my home. Thankfully, her illness wasn’t as severe as originally diagnosed and I opened my Etsy based business in 2011.  I’ve always loved candles, so I set out to start making stylish, high-quality candles that my friends and I would like and use.

 3.  What products do you make and sell?  My main product line includes my crafty soy candles (canning jar containers with decorative handcrafted covers), wax melts, wax luminaries, body butter, spa salts & nail polish. I rotate out other products such as incense, burlap wall art, glass luminaries, facial masks, smelly jellies, salves and children’s bubble bath.

 4.  What are your business goals?  I would like to grow my business from a home business to having a store front in our historic downtown that showcases locally made candles, soaps and crafts. We have a lot of insanely talented artisans in my area and I would love to own a shop that showcases them all, and offer the occasional class in crafting. I would also like to own a small manufacturing facility so that I could take on larger orders that I have had to previously turn down.  Every candle that I create is an investment in not only my future; it’s an investment in the future of my family and this town that I grew up in and think of so dearly. It might be a struggle to achieve my dream, but I’m in this for the long haul and I can’t wait until all of my friends and everyone in this town try my custom container candles.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  My favorite products from Nature’s Garden are the fragrance oils and essential oils. Egyptian Dragon is heavenly, it is my best seller! Vanilla Spectacular is one of my favorite scents. People who normally don’t care for vanilla love Vanilla Spectacular! Another of my favorites is “Cashmere & Silk,” because it is an incredible scent! The essential oils that I have bought from Nature’s Garden have been great, I really love the patchouli essential oil and tea tree essential oil.  In addition to the fragrance and essential oils, I love the variety of herbs and spices that you carry! Many of the body recipes that I make require the use of powdered herbs or spices and they are very expensive to buy locally. I’m very thankful that you carry the herbs and spices that I need. Your incense supplies are phenomenal!

fragrance oils1.  What’s your name & Your Company Name:  Ashley Wallis, owner of Aqua Blossom

2.  Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?   When my boys were babies, I started making baby bath products for them because I wanted something more natural than what I was seeing in stores. I soon began making body scrubs and other products, researching ingredients, and experimenting with formulas. My family and friends encouraged me to begin selling the products, and that’s how Aqua Blossom was born!

3.  What products do you make and sell?  I make lip balm, body butter, body scrubs, facial masks, soaps, and other spa products.

4.  What are your business goals?   My number one goal is always to provide spa quality products and excellent customer service! My current business goals are to attend a market or craft show this holiday season, expand my line of facial products, design several new soaps, and give my website a face lift.

5.  What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?   I love Nature’s Garden lip balm flavor oils, including Buttercream Cupcake, Guava, and Horchatta. I also love the herbs and botanicals including dried lavender buds, rosemary, juniper berries, spearmint, and chamomile.
