The term ‘colloidal’ means a substance that microscopically disperses throughout another substance. Meaning when you blend this version of white clay into water or a similar type of wetting agent, it will suspend and bond TO the water, it will NOT create a paste. For this reason, this clay is not suitable for masque making, unless you plan to add other clays to the base, then this might be an excellent additive in addition to other clays that are not colloidal by design.
What this product is great for … well, the sky is the limit. Since this clay bonds to the wetting agent, you can place this directly into the tub and the clay will float through the water, it will not sink to the bottom of the tub or create that mud appearance when you drain the water. Any bath based recipe, would become extra special, since you will be able to feel the clay inside the water as you bathe, giving your body one excellent detox!
Inside hair care products like shampoo and conditioners, this product makes a fine conditioner which will easily wash off, since it floats in the water. Inside the lotions and creams, it will impart a powdery/velvety texture to your finished product, and will not bind your ingredients into a gooey mess like standard clays can do. Super Nice!!
This clay is 100% pure, there are no fillers or additives.
