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.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Jennifer! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this color. We found the Ultramarine Violet Oxide Pigments makes a beautiful light purple in cold process soap as seen in the CP sample above and in Classic CP Swirl Soap on Soap Queen TV. If you're getting a gray color it sounds like you just need to add more of the colorant! I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
Reply from Bramble Berry 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!

I started the hashtag #SoapShare to help connect soapers, and of course to browse through all the beautiful photos. While looking through photos tagged with #SoapShare on Instagram, I stumbled upon Carolyn of Siennalily Soaps. I was […]
