Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi SoapKat! I'm sorry you were also disappointed in this set. LabColors can be a bit tricky to get used to! With this set of colors it's important to follow the ideas on the LabColor Blending Chart for the right kind of product. Low pH blends need to be used for low pH products and High pH blends should only be used for high pH products. Also, if you're making cold process soap temperature is a huge component when it comes to these colors. Gel phase is your friend as it allows the colors to stay brighter and helps them morph into the correct color if need be. For more information check out our LabColors and Gel Phase are Friends & Back and Better than Ever: LabColors blog posts.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Ann! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this set. It sounds like you may have been using the LabColor Blending Chart ideas for cold process soap. The same blends that work beautifully in CP will not color a low pH product in the same way. You would only want to use the Low pH blends for low pH product like the Foaming Bath Butter. Also, keep in mind that the bath butter is white and that will affect any color you use, like lightening a red color into pink. Think of it as mixing any color you're using with white paint.
