Electric Bubble Gum Colorant - This powdered oil based color is approved for soaps, lotions and lip products. Unlike some neon colors on the marketplace, it is FDA approved for skincare products. As a fun little twist, it does glow under a black neon light. This colorant is not approved for eye make up.Safe for use in lip balms
Instructions for Use: To use in melt and pour, disperse and mix well in liquid glycerin (similar to working with a pigment). We found that our Mini Mixer makes quick work of the dispersing! 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 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.
As of September, 2014, this product is using a slightly different formulation, but we find it works just as well as ever before.

I love this product's color very much, but I'm only rating it 2 stars because it stained my white wash cloths pink, and even a full cycle in hot water WITH bleach and Tide stain remover didn't remove the pink from them. :( The soap itself is super and I love the way it makes my skin feel (CP recipe) but it has been downgraded to hand-soap only because it stains everything. I have several other colorants from BB and have had no issues with any others until I used this colorant.
If you're looking for a bright vibrant pink this is it! I've used this in several batches of CP and I love how they each turned out. Sometimes it can be a bit too bright to go with my other colors so I added titanium dioxide and it toned it down while still keeping a great pink color.
This is such a fun pink. I love the vibrance of the color. Worked great in CP soap.
Very easy to use in CP soap when mixed with oil, doesn't clump or bleed into your other colors, (even white). It has become my go-to bright pink colorant.
I do not have liquid glycerin, I'm not sure I know what it is? I poured a very small amount of the melted clear base into a glass cup and then added about 1/16 amount of the electric pink to it, and it did not mix very good, little dots of it all throughout so then I tried the alcohol trick that Ann Marie showed on one of her video with a capful of alcohol and the pink pigment same amount, that did not work either. So I tried another 1/16 in about 1 teaspoon water and it did better but still not that greatest. I had to really whip it a lot when I added it to my 1lb melt and pour, and when I did it kept getting lighter and lighter, I wanted it to be deep neon pink. What am I doing wrong? I thought I had bought everything I needed, is this liquid glycerin the only thing to help it break up and dissolve? Thanks Josie
