How much Kaolin Clay do I use?

by Keith

What is the general amount of kaolin clay to use per pound of oils? I am using the kaolin clay as a fixative.

Thanks, Keith


The general rule is to use up to 1 Tbsp of Kaolin clay per pound of base oils.

Quickly setting soap

Kaolin clay is not likely the cause of your soap setting up quickly. Nor the titanium dioxide.

Check out the troubleshooting page, specifically question #8 for possible causes of soap setting up too quickly.

Your soap has seized in the pot.

My soap is firming up very quickly, almost to quick to work with. I am using the Kaoline clay and adding it just before trace. should I add it at different time? I am also adding T.D. to the lye solution? any suggestions? I am adding 1 tsp. per lb. of oil
