Description 

Green Chrome Oxide: "Moss Green", this isn't a bright "in your face" green -- rather, it's mindful of a native forest. An excellent match for our Southern Pine and other masculine fragrance. 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 tablespoons 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.

I agree
with Mandolyn. The green seems more like a leaf green to me but no where near as bright as the sample photo. Mixed 1/8 teaspoon into sweet almond oil, then into my CP soap. I like the color, it's just no where near as bright as on my screen (and I have a color calibrated display). I like the color though.

Hi Scott! I'm glad you like this color! The shade of green you get will depend on a number of factors, such as how much you add, what oils you use in your recipe, etc. For the photo above, we used 1/4th teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap. You can see the basic testing recipe we used in this Testing 1,2,3! blog post. However, in this Rainbow Squirty Swirls Tutorial, the green was slightly darker. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this!

Disappointed
I ordered the pigment sampler which contained this in it. I followed recommended usage rate exactly as it is stated in the description. I assumed that the photo of how it turns out in CP soap would be the same usage rate that is recommended. However, that couldn't possibly be the case. In my CP, with Brambleberry's recommended usage, my soaps (after gel) were a pale mint green (not even close to the vibrant green shown in the photo). It definitely isn't my recipe because it is the recipe I always use, and have used other companies oxides at the same/similar rates resulting in beautifully vibrant colors. This was quite disappointing.

Hi Mandolyn! I'm sorry this colorant wasn't your favorite. We've found it creates a deep green, as seen in this Spooky Eyeball Cold Process Soap. To get the color in the photos, we mixed 1 tsp. of the color in 1 Tbsp. sweet almond oil. Then, we added about 1 ½ tsp. of the dispersed color per pound of soap. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!

A nice earthy green
I can't seem to get this green as bright as it is in the soap in the picture, but this is a good earthy green. I wouldn't mind if they came up with a brighter green, but this one works well in CP soap.

A great forest color
I bought this for my holiday line of soap. The first scent I matched it with was Christmas Forest and the look and smell was just perfect. I did think that it took a lot of powder until I realized that it has a tendency to sink to the bottom of the batch so I had to really scrap my mixing wand against the bottom. Once I did and burst those mica pockets, however, it just turned into the most beautiful shade of green. I used this is white, goat milk melt and pour soap.

Pretty moss green
This is a very pretty moss green that works well on its own or in color blends. It's easy to use, sticks well, and doesn't bleed or tint the bubbles.
