Sky Blue High pH makes a aquamarine blue in CP soap. You can vary the intensity by varying the usage rates. Be sure to dilute this one in water before using it as some of the colors can clump if used undiluted.

This is green in the jar and green in the soap....not even a hint of blue. No morphing happened as the soap is green just like the diluted labcolor in the jar! I have other blues that are green as well.... Now to find a blue colorant for my hot and cold process soaps.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Lisa! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this color. In our tests and recipes the Sky Blue High pH LabColor created a bright blue when it's diluted and in cold process soap. You can see an example of this colorant in CP soap after gel phase in the above picture, gel phase is very important with this color. If it's not diluted, it can appear greenish. It is not already diluted when it arrives to you. To find out how to dilute this colors check out this Diluting Bramble Berry LabColors blog post. I will email you personally to resolve this issue!
First off, I don't actually want to give two stars because using the product was fine. It's just that it turned my clear soap into almost a hunter green color instead of blue. I bought this color thinking I would be able to make the lightest shade in the photo of soap above for my wedding. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all this green coloring now.. maybe make something for Christmas. FYI, I diluted my small bottle into 8 oz of water and used 2 mL for 1/4 pound of melt and pour soap. I am a beginner so I did not realize high pH is probably only for CP soap. I tried to be as informed as I could before making my purchase. Maybe there should be a disclaimer on the page for newbies like me? :)
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Jenny! In our tests and recipes, this color created a bright blue in cold process. However, it can morph in melt and pour soap.

I purchased this sky blue for a large special project. Imagine my surprise when I started stirring and the color was green and not blue. My soap was snow white to start with, so it wouldn't make sense that it would turn green, and when I put it in a clear bottle, it was green. I think the bottle was mismarked, but sad for me as I ruined a large batch of soap. So disappointed!
