love them but...
I love the colors and the sample pack is a great way to go, but.... I mixed the Violet according to instructions and even made sure the color was super smooth and still got little dark purple specks all throughout. I used sunflower oil to disperse. Not sure if I'm just not doing something right.

Hi Laurisa! I'm so glad you love the colors in our Pigment Sampler Pack! Though, I'm sorry you had troubles using the violet color. We found that these pigments mix perfectly into a lightweight oil, like sunflower, using our Mini White Plastic Mixer as seen in the Prepare Your Colorants for Cold Process Soap Making blog post. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot.

Colors Beautifully
I have been using these to color my bath bombs and just a smidge goes a long way. I used the yellow to go along with a Mayan Musk scent my son loves. The darker oxides leave a VERY slight ring on the tub at the top of the water line but it's nothing a swish with a washcloth doesn't wipe off. I would expect this for a product not explicitly formulated for a bath bomb, and it's been less issue than I expected.

I ordered this sampler pack to try out the colors in soap. They work great once mixed in oil. Now i'm trying out lip balm flavors and would like to know if all the colors in this pack are "lip safe". In the description of each one it seems as if the're mainly for soap, although some say they can be used in lip balm. For instance: hydrated chrome green, ultramarine blue, and black oxide. I just want to know if these are also approved for use in lip balms.

Hi Cynthia! I'm so glad the colors in our Pigment Sampler Pack have worked so well for you! We do have list of all of our Lip Safe Micas and Colorants. The Brick Red (oxide) Pigment , Burgundy Pigment, and Brown Oxide Pigment are all three lip safe! I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Great for experimenting
For ease of use I just added 1.5 Tbs. Almond oil to each little bag and squished out all the clumps. Now I just use my droppers to get what I need from the little bags. Beautiful colors in the sampler for earthy tones.

Good to try these first
I was very disappointed by the colors I've tried so far, they've been muddy/earthy colors. I used the brick red and chrome green in a silicone molded soap and got dull colors (like I'd expect from using clay as a colorant). Maybe if they'd been in a log mold and gone through an extended gel phase they'd be the same colors photos suggest? I'm not happy with the results but highly recommend trying out the pigments this way to figure out what works for you. I'm a relatively new soap maker and love the chance to try different things.

Hi Alexandrea! I'm sorry these colorants weren't your favorite. In our recipes and tests, we've gotten nice bright colors. You can see the results in this Fall Sweater Stripes Tutorial and this Christmas Tree Swirl Cold Process. If your recipe has a lot of olive oil, which has a yellow tint, it can affect the color. Using whiter oils like coconut oil and palm oil can help. Also, these colors are considered natural, so they do produce more earthy tones. If you want brighter colors, you may like our neon colors. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!
