Abstract: The dc-magnetization of the unique S=1-2 kagome antiferromagnetHerbertsmithite has been measured down to 0.1K. No sign of spin freezing isobserved in agreement with former muSR and ac-susceptibility results. The lowtemperature magnetic response is dominated by a defect contribution whichexhibits a new energy scale $\simeq 1$ K, likely reflecting the coupling of thedefects. The defect component is saturated at low temperature by H>8T appliedmagnetic fields which enables us to estimate an upper bound for the nonsaturated intrinsic kagome susceptibility at T=1.7K.
