You must let your soap gel to get blue!

Initially when I used the indigo, I got a beautiful greenish teal color which I loved. It wasn't until I used it again and added to my hot processed soap AFTER the gel phase, that it turned more of a blue jean. Now that I know to add it after gel phase AND let it sit for a couple of weeks, I will definitely try it again. I mixed the indigo with my SF after the cook. If you want more of the greenish/teal color, add it before the cook. It helps to do a test batch.

Frustrating

I've tried both ways, adding this powder to my lye solution and adding at trace for cold process soap. All that has resulted is grey soap. Highly disappointed.

Disappointed

I received my Indigo powder today and was so excited to try it out on a column pour, used rose clay, T.D. and activated charcoal for colorants, it all went well until noticed my pretty blue had turned a moss type of green, It does not look bad just not what I wanted! Sigh! Back to the drawing board! Otherwise love all the B.B. products I have purchased thus far.

Yuck

I used 2 tsp in a 5 lb batch of CP. I used a palm free recipe. The color is awful! It was a horrible gray on top, and after cutting the inside color is a ugly dark gray/green. The longer it cures, the darker green it becomes. I may experiment a little more to see if I can improve the color, but my first impression is not good.

Love this natural colorant.

I have been trying color my soaps with mostly natural colorants and I love the blue hue this powder gives. I recently just made blueberry soap with Alkanet root and the Indigo powder. The result is beautiful purple and blue swirls. It looks great! I wanted to also make a blueberry flavored lip balm and was wondering if the Indigo Powder was lip safe? I've seen others use it but haven't been able to get a clear answer.
