I may have used too much and will try again with less. Used it diluted as instructed in a spoon plop with a white. Slight bleeding of color. Peppermint scent. Got this with the Lab Color kit and blended it for a berry color that turned out nicely. Samples shown above are pale compared to what I got. Mine stained washcloths but rinsed out easily, unlike oxides.
I purchased this red to use in the Blackberry Campaign soap recipe. When I un-molded my soap it looked perfect. All the beautiful layers of dark to light red layers. However, when I cut my soap the 3 innermost layers where white! All around the edges, top and bottoms the color was beautiful, but it looks like the color separated out of the center. I diluted this into the 4oz warm water according to directions? I feel all the pricy ingredients and my hard work were wasted.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Paige! I'm sorry your soap did not turn out as you expected with this colorant. I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
