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.

This colorant does not mix in well to my CP soap. It leaves specks every time. I have been dispersing it in sunflower oil, and have even tried micronizing it first in a grinder. The color would be lovely without the speckles.
I used this ultramarine pink in my cold process soap at 2 teaspoons dispersed with water. It was a dark matte pink and looked great against neon yellow. Can use as a light or dark pink!!
I have been in business for over 15 years and have used pink oxide for all of those years. I do not like the oil dispersing oxides. I'm just wondering why water dispersing oxides esp pink and purple are hard to find now?
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Ruth! I'm sorry this colorant wasn't your favorite. We love the how easy oil soluble oxides are to use! You can also disperse the oxides in Liquid Glycerin if you don't want to use an oil. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
I actually haven't tried this one yet, but I plan to buy it with my next order. I'm writing because I'd be interested to know what fragrance oil was used by the reviewer who said her batch turned orange? I love this color, it is an old-fashioned pink, with really nice mauve tones. I'm thinking of using this with a vibrance purple, white and dark green to make a fuchsia-themed soap, and I can't wait to try it out!
I used this color in my very first batch of soap (cp), and the color it turned out was almost exactly the picture of the powder. I mixed a small amount with about an oz. of hazelnut oil and swirled it with uncolored and purple soap :) it turned out really nice.
