Kelp Powder: Use this to create a dark green in soap and toiletries, or just to keep an ocean theme going in your products! The Kelp Powder does have a distinct smell to it, so be aware of that before using it in any of your products. We have found that letting it cure for the full 4-6 weeks in cold process soaps does help reduce the seaweed smell and leaves it with a nice ocean air smell.
INCI: Fucus versiculosus

Hi! Kelp Powder is actually made from seaweed, so that is probably why you are getting the ocean-y scent in your product. If you want a natural green color for your cold process soaps, I would suggest using the
Green Zeolite Clay
or even the
Cambrian Blue Clay
which gives a gorgeous blue-gray-green color to your soaps.
