This is my go-to purple. I add a much high amount than recommended to my CP soaps, and I get a wonderfully vibrant purple. Make sure to dilute first!!
This was the perfect purple for my Lavender & Rosemary soap, scented with essential oils. It came out exactly as pictured for cold process soap!
I mixed this into CP soap, and it turned the mixture pinkish purple, not even remotely periwinkle, it ruined a large double batch that was supposed to be a blue-themed type of soap (eucalyptus/spearmint), and I ended up just having to give it away since it looked nothing like the soaps I had previously sold with that scent. I was extremely disappointed, as this behaved quite a lot like green MP (non-high pH) soap colorant. I used it in a small batch of MP and it turned turquoise. I really hope that I wasn't given the wrong colorant in a periwinkle High pH bottle!
