Ultramarine Pink: "Baby Doll Pink", this is a great shade of pastel pink, perfect for any sort of baby soap or Valentine's Day Soap. 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 tablespoon 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 2 teaspoons 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.

Hi Erin! We've never had our Ultramarine Pink Pigment give us too much trouble when mixing into either water or oil, we'd love to hear more about what happened in your batch and will be contacting you via e-mail to find out more! If you check the photo above, you can see how it turns out in cold process soap.
