Kaolin Clay

Kaolin clay is a natural clay, used in many cosmetics for its strength and lightweight feel on the skin. Known also as china clay it is known for many benefits in skincare and cosmetics. From being silky on the skin to being a very mild ingredient to use.

Here at portside we try to use it in 90% of our products because of the amazing feel on the body it has. In our bath bombs alone we use up to 4 tablespoons of clay in one batch...and We keep our batches small.

Kaolin clay  can be effectively used to care for wet and oily skin which is why we use it also in our whipped soaps and sugar scrubs to give an extra nourishing feel to your skin.


Sweet Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil is a light, golden colour oil that is extracted from sweet almonds. A pure, natural oil that is so versatile, our sweet almond oil is sourced directly from the producers and is refined.

here at Portside we use this as many of our base oils due to its nourishing properties and its lack of scent as not to change the scent of the product.

Sweet almond oil contains vitamins A, D and E as well as monounsaturated fatty acids, potassium and zinc.
