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.

Brilliant color but stains laundry
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.

Hi Alisha! We love the bright pink boldness our Electric Bubble Gum Colorant exudes. It is a super strong colorant and you don't need a lot to color your soap. If your soap lathers pink, then too much color was used. To achieve the color in the cold process sample above we used 1 tsp colorant per pound of soap.

Very Bright Pink
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.

Amazing Pink
This is such a fun pink. I love the vibrance of the color. Worked great in CP soap.

The perfect "girly-girl" pink
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.

Need Help! Newbie :)
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
