Stained my skin

I was so excited about this, it gave me the exact color I wanted for my bath bomb, but it completely stained my skin even about exfoliating and showering I'm afraid my skins going to be this color for a long time, it was also all over my bath tub I had to give up scrubbing it for a bit because my back hurt so bad, I'm really hoping it comes off. I was expecting some residue with such a dark color but nithing like this.

Fabulous color!!!

I just used this in a Cranberry Chutney CP goat milk soap and the color is stunning!!! 2 wks. in, it is getting even a little darker and is just a beautiful shade of burgundy! I'm now going to use it in a Raspberry lip balm and can't wait to see how it turns out with that!

Not Burgundy... a strange mauve/pink

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 weird mauve/pink color (not even close to the deep burgundy shown in the photo). I was using this with Green Chrome Oxide and TD for a Christmas soap... in my area, I can't market it as a Christmas soap if it's mauve. 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 nice red, as seen in this Red Apple Cold Process Soap. To get the color in the photo, we mixed 2 tsp. color in 2 Tbsp. sweet almond oil. Then, we added all of that dispersed color. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!

Darker Color Than Expected, Good Quality

Although this color turned out to be darker than I expected (I used it to make lipstick), it was good quality iron oxide. I like that it is packaged in a plastic jar so that it is easy to store for later. Purchase this if you are looking for a dark burgundy color. If using in lipstick, you will have to mix it with a lighter color to make less dark.
