Burgundy: This is a deep burgundy that will go fabulously with our Cranberry Fig, Berry Wine or Plum Spice. Imagine a deep Merlot Wine - this is that 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 in 1 pound of soap. For more information on oxides in soap, check out this blog post.Safe for use in lip balms
INCI: Iron Oxide

Hi Mandolyn! I'm sorry this colorant wasn't your favorite. We've found it creates a nice red, as seen in this Red Apple Cold Process Soap. To get the color in the photo, we mixed 2 tsp. color in 2 Tbsp. sweet almond oil. Then, we added all of that dispersed color. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!
