Fizzy Lemonade - This powdered oil based color is approved for use in soaps and lotions. Unlike some neon colors on the marketplace, it is FDA approved for skincare products. This colorant has been approved for lip products, but not for eye make up.
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! 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. We recommend starting out at 1/16th to 1/8th teaspoon per pound for melt & pour soaps. For cold process, add 1 teaspoon of oxide to 1 tablespoon of a carrier oil like Sweet Almond or Olive Oil and mix well using a mini mixer – add 1 teaspoon of this mixture to your batch. For more information on oxides in soap, check out this blog post.
To achieve the color in the sample soap above, use 1 tsp of colorant per lb of soap.
As of September 24, 2014, the formulation for our Fizzy Lemonade has changed, but we find it still works just as well.

This is a beautiful color but it took me a little practice to use it successfully in CP. When I first added it to my cold process soap batter, it didn’t look like there was any color at all. So I kept adding more to get the shade I wanted. But 24 hours later the color had darkened and developed into an overly bright, super-duper day-glo yellow, lol! So when you use this pretty color in your CP soap, just keep in mind that it takes a while to develop. So if you want a pretty, buttery light yellow, use less than what you think you'll need because it will intensify.
The BEST buttery color I have EVER tried! I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
This works so well in CP and never looses color. I use 1/2 the suggested amount to get the buttery color and it is amazing! Thank you for supplying such awesome products!
I love using this yellow in my melt and pour. It's beautiful and bright. I like mixing it with my green oxide to lighten up the green. I need to order more!
Best yellow I have found for cp soap. Clear and bright.
I have used this colorant in both MP & CP and the color came out perfect in both. A bright vibrant yellow. I used it with the lemon FO in the CP.
