Rating: This clay is excellent for removing dirt and impurities under the skin, I find that when I break out, this and some activated charcoal never let me down. The colour is beautiful in masks creams, and especially cp soap. In cp soap, the colour lasts for so long, you don't experience the same fading you usually get with other natural colorants. Wonderful to use for a rose soap! Its sad to see that it is getting discontinued? What a beautiful product.

Rating: This size will outlive me! You need a very small amt. On it's own it tends to be a rusty brown red but a small amt added to a red or pink mica can make a beautiful true vibrant red - use it for xmas red and it never disappoints.

Rating: I was disappointed when I first received the product because the clay looks way more brown than it does in the photo (I was expecting a nice brick red). However, when you dissolve the clay in water the colour is quite different than the brownish look of the dry clay. I ended up using it in a red wine cp soap and it's the perfect shade of red :)
Rating: Stunning! Love it so much. Pleasantly surprised by the well behaviour in CP soap

Rating: Another awesome clay where a little, goes a long way. You can achieve a nice light pink, or a deep red with this - which makes it a staple for me.

Rating: Love this to help colour my hair, although I was hoping to get a clay that was this gorgeous burgundy wine colour like everyone talks about. So that I could use it in my natural lipsticks for a dark red. Unfortunately my batch of clay was very very brown, far more brown than red. That being said I love it for all it's benefits, and will continue to use this in my hair care routine.
Rating: Not sure of the beneficial qualities it will have in CP soaps, but the colour is a brick red and very stable. Did not accelerate trace in CP soaps

Rating: Such a gorgeous red wine colour! Looks lovely added to hair colour or cosmetic preparations. Though a word of warning: start by using 1/4 of what you think you need - my first face powder could've been marketed as fake-a-sunburn lol.

Rating: I added a tablespoon to my henna mix and it gave my hair a wonderful burgundy sheen! A little really does go a long way. Great natural colourant!
By:Sharon, Mississauga, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Nov-2011
Rating: Adds great color to CP soap. Turned out a nice warm red brick color. I've been wearing gloves when handling this product - will very easily stain skin and whatever else it touches.

Rating: When colouring a product, be sure to use as little as a smidge and work up in quantity until the desired colour is reached. These Australian clays are very dark, and do stain! Even bathtubs!!!

Rating: Great product! I add this clay to my CP soap for a natural deep burgundy colour and it's beautiful. It's best for normal to oily skin.
