Rating: I got this to color soap naturally. It does the job and a little goes a long, long way. Packaged nicely too.

Rating: I've had this clay for a while now and cant seem to want to use it sometimes. Any good uses for it? Ive used it in masks/scrubs but it tends to leave a thin layer of clay and its very dark so its not very appealing.
It feels great but i have to wash my face with soap to get rid of it all.

By:Andrea, Woodstock, Georgia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Aug-2010
Rating: I've been a long time customer of NDA for several reasons, they carry products that are hard to find and they have the best quality and prices! Customers rely on me to keep popular items like the Australian Black Clay in stock and I know I can always find it at NDA! This black clay is very useful and customers love to make their own cosmetics with it, especially eye shadow for those 'smokey' eyes, and soaps! It's all natural and customers appreciate that!

Rating: This is a hard to find, authentic Australian black clay. My customers love this for making cosmetics such as mascara and eye shadow. Can be used in soap as well and has excellent medicinal qualities. Outstanding price that can't be beat anywhere else!

Rating: I just received this clay this week. Am masking with it. I am extremely impressed with the quality of this clay and appreciate being able to purchase it. As always, thank you!
By:Julie, Watertown, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Sep-2009
Rating: This is an absolutely fabulous clay. A little goes a long way and it colors cp soap beautifully while imparting that wonderful skin softening feeling that comes from clay soaps. I can tell its going to become a staple in my soap products and I'm really excited to start using it in other products like masks.

Rating: This clay worked very well for making swirl soap. I only used 1/2 Tbsp in my 4 lb batch and think I could of cut that in half. We'll see when we take a shower in 4 weeks:-)

Rating: Swirling is divine in cp soap with this and all of NDA's clays (I've tried 4 so far). It blends incredibly well in cp soap and really sticks. I also find it helps low sud soap bases to lather more,perhaps due to the very fine particles of the clay providing a bit of friction. When used in non-wet applications I find it's harder to get a true black w/out resulting in some kind of staining..so a dark black mask isn't possible w/out leaving your customer with a stained face. I tried this and the red reef as a hair tint but haven't quite gotten the ratio down or figured out a good way to make it fix to hair temporarily w/out leaving a mess on one's pillowcase at night, but this might just be an issue with using clay in this capacity in general and should in no way reflect on the amazing properties of the product itself. In all it's seriously fun to play with!

Rating: This clay is awesome! i got it today however i have already experienced enough to tell that it will work wonders for my skin! Im just beggining to discover the excitements of making your own facial mask, hair conditioners, and more, and I am very very happy and giddy about the possibilities. Nda is the best! they are awesome and my package even had a hand written letter from them. Nobody has ever done that in any other websites. And that really means alot to me.I am looking foward to making Nda a big significance in my life and they are truly a part of my life now. thank you so much for the quality Nda! you rock!

Rating: 1) Awesome face mask! Egg white, drop of peppermint E.O. and oatmeal powder - viola! Love love love this product for facials!
2) The perfect eyeliner! Once again - love love love this once more! I use this for my mineral eyeliner line. It's so incredibly easy to work with, dries to a powder finish, there's no oils so you don't have to worry about that black line that magically appears across your upper eyelid and easy to blend for the shmexy wing tips that are so popular now. It doesn't irritate the eyes either if you should accidently stick your brush in there either - not that I would know, mind you *wink*
I highly recommend this product!
Rating: I've been looking for a natural way to make black soap and this just does the trick! You don't need much! It is really strong in colour so if you don't want black lather don't add to much to your batch!
By:Ariane, Havre-Aubert, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Excellent quality clay! I add Midnight Black to my CP soaps for its skin conditioning and nourishing properties, as well as nice gray color.
By:Karen, Spring Hill, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Dec-2007
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!!!
