Brown Oxide: "Bark Brown", a nice, standard brown. 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 1/4th teaspoon of colorant in 1 pound of soap. For more information on oxides in soap, check out this blog post.
Note: Due to batch variation, this batch of brown oxide has a lighter hue.
Safe for use in lip balms
