Bright Green

This lab color was hunter green both straight out of the bottle and once diluted in 8 oz of distilled water. While it's a very pretty green... it's not Sky Blue. My fault for not reading the reviews carefully enough. I'll do a test batch with this color and if it turns Sky Blue after the gel phase I will reevaluate the review. Brambleberry has great customer service though!

I'm sorry the Sky Blue Lab Color surprised you. It is the lye in the soap reacting with the colorant which causes it to morph into the sky blue. . For more information on the high pH LabColors check out our Back and Better than Ever: LabColors blog post. Gel phase is also super important in the process to insure that you get those bright colors you seen as noted in our LabColors and Gel Phase are Friends blog post.

AWEFUL AWEFUL GREEN COLOR!

This is green in the jar and green in the soap....not even a hint of blue. No morphing happened as the soap is green just like the diluted labcolor in the jar! I have other blues that are green as well.... Now to find a blue colorant for my hot and cold process soaps.

Hi Lisa! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this color. In our tests and recipes the Sky Blue High pH LabColor created a bright blue when it's diluted and in cold process soap. You can see an example of this colorant in CP soap after gel phase in the above picture, gel phase is very important with this color. If it's not diluted, it can appear greenish. It is not already diluted when it arrives to you. To find out how to dilute this colors check out this Diluting Bramble Berry LabColors blog post. I will email you personally to resolve this issue!

Wrong color for me too

First off, I don't actually want to give two stars because using the product was fine. It's just that it turned my clear soap into almost a hunter green color instead of blue. I bought this color thinking I would be able to make the lightest shade in the photo of soap above for my wedding. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all this green coloring now.. maybe make something for Christmas. FYI, I diluted my small bottle into 8 oz of water and used 2 mL for 1/4 pound of melt and pour soap. I am a beginner so I did not realize high pH is probably only for CP soap. I tried to be as informed as I could before making my purchase. Maybe there should be a disclaimer on the page for newbies like me? :)

Hi Jenny! In our tests and recipes, this color created a bright blue in cold process. However, it can morph in melt and pour soap. To find our low pH colors for melt and pour, click here!

WRONG COLOR

I purchased this sky blue for a large special project. Imagine my surprise when I started stirring and the color was green and not blue. My soap was snow white to start with, so it wouldn't make sense that it would turn green, and when I put it in a clear bottle, it was green. I think the bottle was mismarked, but sad for me as I ruined a large batch of soap. So disappointed!
