Brick Red: This reminds me of a fire house, with all the beautiful bricks setting off the power inside -- it's that great color of deep red with a tinge of orange which makes it a great year round color. Approved for use in cosmetics, including lip products. 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 1.5 teaspoons of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.

If you are finding this colorant to color your suds and washcloth, we suggest using less than the recommended rate. We've used it in our

and didn't have any problems with it over-coloring our batch. In fact, in our 4 lb batch, we only used 1 teaspoon of colorant. Typically we do 2 teaspoon in 1 tablespoon of oil and then add that mixture to your batch until you get the color you like. If you are searching for a perfect red that doesn't color your lather, we would suggest checking out the perfect red in this
