Neon Blue Raspberry Colorant - This powdered oil based color is approved for soaps, lotions and lip products. Unlike some neon colors on the marketplace, it is FDA approved for skincare products. This colorant doesn't bleed in soap and is safe to use in eye make-up too!
Safe for use in lip balms
Instructions for Use: To use in melt and pour, disperse and mix well in liquid glycerin (similar to working with a pigment). We found that our Mini Mixer makes quick work of the dispersing! We recommend starting out at 1/16th to 1/8th teaspoon per pound for melt and pour soaps. For cold process, add ½ teaspoon of colorant to 1 ounce 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 ½ teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of 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. For more information on pigments in soap, check out this blog post.
