Pigment Sampler Pack: Each pack contains 0.2 ounces weight of:
I published my review grumbling about sizes of the samples and then realized that I did my math wrong. That's what I get for doing my math at the end of a long day! Each sample packet is enough to color about 2lbs of soap, which is about what I'm looking for. I'll adjust my review to report on performance after I'm done with my soap.
i loved all the colors except wasn't to crazy about the brick red. I was kind of new to soaping so I just needed time to work with the mixing of colors to get the color I wanted. Sometime has passed now even the brick red works for me. BB lost 1 star because of no instructions on the bag. It would have helped when I just started learning about soaping or even a slip of paper guide in the sampler pack would have helped out. Other than that, perfect.
I love the colors and the sample pack is a great way to go, but.... I mixed the Violet according to instructions and even made sure the color was super smooth and still got little dark purple specks all throughout. I used sunflower oil to disperse. Not sure if I'm just not doing something right.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Laurisa! I'm so glad you love the colors in our Pigment Sampler Pack! Though, I'm sorry you had troubles using the violet color. We found that these pigments mix perfectly into a lightweight oil, like sunflower, using our Mini White Plastic Mixer as seen in the Prepare Your Colorants for Cold Process Soap Making blog post. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot.
I have been using these to color my bath bombs and just a smidge goes a long way. I used the yellow to go along with a Mayan Musk scent my son loves. The darker oxides leave a VERY slight ring on the tub at the top of the water line but it's nothing a swish with a washcloth doesn't wipe off. I would expect this for a product not explicitly formulated for a bath bomb, and it's been less issue than I expected.
I ordered this sampler pack to try out the colors in soap. They work great once mixed in oil. Now i'm trying out lip balm flavors and would like to know if all the colors in this pack are "lip safe". In the description of each one it seems as if the're mainly for soap, although some say they can be used in lip balm. For instance: hydrated chrome green, ultramarine blue, and black oxide. I just want to know if these are also approved for use in lip balms.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Cynthia! I'm so glad the colors in our Pigment Sampler Pack have worked so well for you! We do have list of all of our Lip Safe Micas and Colorants. The Brick Red (oxide) Pigment , Burgundy Pigment, and Brown Oxide Pigment are all three lip safe! I will email you personally to discuss this further.
