Black Oxide: "Midnight", black is a great color to have in any collection -- creates an impressive and classic contrast against white. While this is a non-bleeding colorant, if you add too much to your soap it can migrate into other colors in the soap design or stain washcloths. We recommend starting out at 1/16th to 1/8th teaspoon per pound for melt & pour soaps. For cold process, add 1 teaspoon of oxide to 1 tablespoon of a carrier oil like Sweet Almond or Olive Oil and mix well using a mini mixer. To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used 1/4th teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap. For more information on oxides in soap, check out this blog post.

Looks better the longer it cured
I used the amount recommended with my 2 lb mold and at first I didn't think it would be enough (I looked grayish) and even after I cut it, it seem lighter then what I hoped for. Now a week afterward it actually looks black again. I made a black and white (licorice scented) soap so I'm sure happy it looks black again. I did use my sample bar and washed my hands with it. Noticed the bubbles were a little grey but it did not stain my cloth at all. Would buy again!

Great black colorant
This colorant works well in CP soap. I haven't noticed problems with the bubbles turning gray. It doesn't fade, and it's easy to use.
