Description 

Ultramarine Violet: "Light Purple", this is a beautiful match for our "Lilac" fragrance or mix it with our Ultramarine Blue for an amazing dark purple. 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.

Note: Our Ultramarine Violet has a slight sulphur smell. We have found once added to product it goes away complete whether a fragrance is used or not.

Love it
I use this pigment for 2 of my soaps. By itself in clear base it is a lovely purple color that is perfect for my amethyst soap. Mixed with titanium dioxide or used a pre-made white base it is the perfect color for lavender soaps.

just a question??
can these type of pigments be used in bath bombs and if so how would one go about doing that?

Hi Joshua!  You can definitely use our pigments in your bath bombs! You would just mix the Ultramarine Violet Oxide Pigment directly into your bath bomb mixture.  You can see us incorporate powdered colorant into our bath bombs in our Mondo Bath Bombs tutorial. I will email you personally to discuss this further!

Perfect
This was a perfect light lilac tint to my lavender soap. Make sure you blend this well... is perfect for anyone who wants natural colors!

Light, delicate lavender. Blend with other colorants for deeper purple.
Compared with some other oxides, you do need to add more of this to get the desired effect. And no matter how much you add, it won't ever give you a deep purple. I don't consider this to be a "defect" of the oxide -- that's just how it works. But be aware, if you're looking for a wizard-robe purple, choose a different colorant or blend. The pretty lavender color is great for floral scents. I like to use it with sage and white, too. Like the description suggests, you can achieve a vibrant, cool-hued purple in CP soap using this colorant with a little bit of ultramarine blue oxide pigment; it really electrifies it and oomphs up the color! And then to that, you can add tiny amounts of activated charcoal to go into deep-cool-purple territory. I think this combo looks great as a drop swirl within a lighter or uncolored soap.

Nice purple
I have noticed you have to use more of this colorant to achieve a deeper purple than you do the other oxides. That said, it's very pretty, doesn't fade, and is easy to use in CP soap.
