I used this for lavender soap and the color was light purple and perfect
for my melt and pour soap! It looked blue before I diluted it but when
I added the droplets to the melted soap it was a perfect lavender! This was my first time with melt and pour and it was very fun! I will buy this again!
I was so excited to find a nice purple to mix in with my lavender bars only to find this colorant is BLUE! Not violet or blue-purple but what I can only describe as bright aquamarine blue. I hoped it was simply too concentrated that it just looked blue in my test batch but I tried everything down to a pinprick in all my M&P bases. I just got lighter aqua-blue. I can only hope I was sent a mislabeled bottle because anyone hoping for a purple color will be very disappointed. Since shipping takes about 2 weeks, I had to use the generic colorants at the craft store to fill my order.
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi SoapsByJess! In our recipes and tests, we've found the diluted product creates a nice purple color. I'll be emailing you to find out more about your soap!
