Black oxide pigment

Hi! I used this pigment as prescribed in description, even in lesser amount. I added ~ 1tsp to 1 tbsp of sweet almont oil for 3,3 lb batch of CP. After 4 weeks I tried to use the soap, but the pigment had colored the foam, giving it a greyish hue, as if soilong it a little. What could be the problem? Should I perhaps have waited longer for the pigment to be totally absorbed? Or isuue was in the temperature? Thank you very much!

Hi Evija! Black oxide can be tricky. To get a solid black color in cold process soap, you would have to overcolor, which can cause a gray or black lather. It shouldn't stain your washcloths or towels though! Check out our Black, White and Gold All Over Cold Process tutorial where we use the black oxide. You will notice the post mentions a gray lather so it is completely normal. If that's not something you're a fan of, you can add less color for more of a rich gray instead of black. :-)

Color for bath bombs

This pigment should be more than ideal if used properly. Please ensure that a product is not already sold under the name you wish to use, as this is enforcable under copyright laws when a listing on any website is well documented. For instance, Angel, you failed to research items already sold with the name you wish to profit from. Help yourself out by checking if any other items have an established sales record with the title you have selected.

Perfect in CP After Curing, Nice in Clear MP

This one made me nervous at first with an ugly shade of gray, but 4 weeks of curing later, it looks great. I dispersed 2 tsp in 2 tbsp of sweet almond oil for a 3 lb batch of CP. My husband dispersed a tiny bit in some rubbing alcohol for one of his MP projects

Black Oxide Pigment

I made some gorgeous bars of melt and pour soap last night using white and this black pigment. The bars turned out beautiful with the tops being lumpy as I wanted them to be and the black scattered throughout the soap - the bottom of the soap is solid black. GROAN! The black on the bottom of the soap rubs off on my hands - it's almost like rubbing a magic marker on my hand. It's only been "cured" for 24 hours now - but will it stop rubbing off? Is there anything with which I can treat it to stop it from rubbing off? The soap is just too beautiful to scrap and I hope there is a way to fix this! HELP!

Hi Sara! I'm so glad your soap turned out so beautiful using this Black Oxide Pigment!  Though, I'm sorry i's rubbing off onto your hands so much.  In our tests and recipes we found 1/16-1/8 tsp per pound of melt and pour soap colored the soap perfectly without washing off onto our skin or washcloths.  When a soap is colored in high concentration the colorant can definitely run off the soap!  You can always melt down your soap and add more uncolored base to keep this from happening.  I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
