Spirulina Powder - This powder is used to get a dark green in soaps (but does smell a bit ocean-y). Suggested usage in cold process soap is 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp in 5lb batch. Add at trace.

As much as I like natural ingredients, the scent of this powder is so unpleasant that I cannot use it. My friend thinks it smells like a dead sea animal! Although it becomes more faint after the soap cures, it is still there.
I purchased this powder as part of the Star Anise bars. I combined this with clay in white M&P base. The smell is quite strong and over powers the base. I suggest to use as little as possible as a little goes a long way. Not disappointed in this product, but will use with caution. It is however a very nice colorant as the description states.
I use this as a light green colorant along with the Salty Mariner fragrance oil. It gives an excellent salty sea spray scent and customers love it.
