I ordered the pigment sampler which contained this in it. I followed recommended usage rate exactly as it is stated in the description. I assumed that the photo of how it turns out in CP soap would be the same usage rate that is recommended. Apparently my assumption was incorrect because it looks nothing like the photo. In my CP, with Brambleberry's recommended usage, my soaps (after gel) were a light sky blue (not even close to the deep, vibrant blue shown in the photo). It definitely isn't because of my recipe, as it is the recipe I always use, and have used other companies oxides at the same/similar rates resulting in beautifully vibrant colors. This was quite disappointing.

Hi Mandolyn! I'm sorry this colorant wasn't your favorite. We've found it creates a bright blue, as seen in this Fourth of July Fireworks Cold Process Soap. To get the color in the photos, we mixed 1 tsp. of the color in 1 Tbsp. sweet almond oil. Then, we added about 1 ½ tsp. of the dispersed color per pound of soap. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!
