Hi Jawaher! I'm sorry you had that experience! Though our Non-Bleeding Perfect Red Color Block should not turn brown at all. You can see an example of this block used in Clear Melt and Pour Soap above. Though it would depend on what base you're using the color in and if you're using any additives that may affect the color, like a discoloring fragrance oil. Find out more about that process in our "Why Did my Soap Turn Brown?" blog post. Customer service has contacted you directly to help troubleshoot :-)

IT REALLY IS!

The Perfect Red! I make sure it's good and melted by putting it in the same microwave container as my M&P soap cubes. No problems what-so-ever! I'm very pleased with this product. Well Done BB!

Love the color, hate the specks

The color is wonderful but maybe I'm doing something wrong. I get lots of specks and I stir and stir and stir and still can't get rid of them. I used this in place of the liquid nonbleeding red, which I guess is discontinued, in clear melt and pour. I tried adding very thin silvers when the soap is melted, as the soap is being melted and finally just by itself in the microwave. I tried reheating the melt and pour to see if that would help and I quit because I was afraid of burning the soap. The best result I got was to put the silvers in a separate small bowl and microwave it unitl it melted and then add it as a liquid to the melt and pour base. I stored it in the bag it came in and it did develop little crystals (sweat) on the outside. Don't know if that has an influence. I'm hesitant to buy anymore until I understand what I did wrong. I did get other block colors (electric bubblegum & tangerine wow) in my Kickstarter kit and had no problems whatsoever.

Hi Jeanne! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. In our tests and recipes, we've found it doesn't speckle, as seen in the Beginner's Soapmaking Tutorial video on Soap Queen TV. We recommend shaving off thin slivers in your melted soap and stirring well. The thinner the slivers, the easier they are to melt. If it doesn't melt fully, you can pop the soap back into the microwave on 5-second bursts. I'll be emailing you personally to help troubleshoot!

Affordable, Clean, Convinient.

No messy powders, no worrying about dispersing in glycerin or oils, and best of all no undisolved clumps on the bottoms of my soap molds. The red is deep and rich, and I don't need to use much to get the desired affect. I make 2-4 bars of soap at a time (10-20 oz of melt and pour), and only need a small sliver of color block. Just remember people, white and red make pink! Read your soap base's ingredient list. Titanium dioxide = white.

Perfect Red

Very disappointed. Used this in clear glycerin soap for Christmas soap. The color looked like more of a brown to Indian red rather than the bright red I wanted to achieve. The color block itself is a briwnish red to begin with.

Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Sandra! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. In our tests and projects, we've found it creates a nice bright red, as seen in this Puppy Love Melt and Pour Tutorial. You may want to add just a few shavings of color block to get a lighter red. Adding more can create a darker, more concentrated color. I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this issue!
