Bentolite/Kaolin/Clay Smell in Formulas

I am working on a face mask formula which has 2.5% Bentolite and 10% white Kaolin Clay and it has that distinct smell of clay in the base formula without fragrance.  Is there a way to mask this clay fragrance in the final formula without having to use a fragrance and perhaps "naturally".


  • No.
    You will need a fragrance as you are essentially creating mud. The natural minerals in the clay are what you are smelling. No way to hide it unless you use less clay. Even then you will still smell the clay, just not as strong.
