Very Attractive Blue/Gray Color

I do like this colorant. There is a bit of a debate at our house as to whether this is a blue or a gray. I say definitely a nice blue color; most of my family say gray/blue. Either way it is lovely color, and it's natural.

Fantastic Color

I love the bright color that this indigo powder adds to my cold process goats milk soap. This has become my go-to color for an array of blues. It is really beautiful. When you first cut, don't be alarmed if it appears to be an unattractive green color. As soon as it is cut, it turns blue within minutes.

Underwhelming and not worth the trouble

The powder is fine and disperses well, but like many of the soapers here, I struggle with achieving the blues of my dreams. As a concept, using indigo powder (or any organic colorant) seemed so cool, but it doesn't go very far, and the results are always somewhat subdued. I think I'll be sticking to ultramarines and micas.

It is definitely difficult to get a deep and true blue with the Natural Indigo Powder. Natural colorants in general are tricker to use though you may find some information in our Natural Colorant Rainbow Cold Process Soap tutorial. The Ultramarines are also a great alternative but for another natural blue you may be happier with the Jagua Blue Extract.

Not blue, period.

After EIGHT different batches with it - HP, CP, added at trace, added after cook, added to lye water, added to boiling lye water, different oil recipes - it is very obvious that THIS DOES NOT MAKE BLUE SOAP. Beautiful grays, yes. Lavender, perhaps. But not blue. Not by anyone's definition. Do not get your hope's up.

Tina from Bramble Berry replies...
The Natural Indigo Powder definitely does make more of a gray blue, you can see an example picture above. To achieve that color in cold process soap we used 2 teaspoons of dispersed Indigo Powder in 0.6 pounds of soap so if you add more indigo you should be able to get that darker blue type color you are looking for. Also, the soap tends to cure darker blue over time, that beautiful dark blue in the sample soap was after about 5 months. If you're looking for a brighter blue you may prefer Ultramarine Blue Pigment.

Perfect!

This is the best indigo I have tried. It makes a blue jean blue when added to the lye mixture. It makes a perfect gray when added to the soap batter at trace. Then it makes a soft baby blue when mixed with some olive oil and added to my batter at room temperature. So many different ways to get blues from this one product I love it!
