Moroccan Red Clay

This is some beautiful red clay from Morocco that I was lucky enough to acquire from a supplier - 4thAveSoapSupplies - on Etsy. I am not quite sure what I will make with it yet, most likely it will go into one of my soaps, it should give it an excellent colour. I think it would be lovely in a soap scented maybe with ginger or something spicy. I have a few ideas that I am playing around with so we shall see........
Moroccan red clay comes from deep below the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. It is a strong cleansing clay that will draw excess oils from the skin, stimulate circulation to the skin and act as a powerful astringent for oily skin and hair. It is also used in many spas around the world.
