Ultramarine Blue: "Lapis", deep, bright & wonderfully blue, this is a beautiful color. A 'must have' to mix with Violet (makes that perfect purple) or to use alone. While this is a non-bleeding colorant, if you add too much to your soap it can migrate into other colors in the soap design or stain washcloths. We recommend starting out at 1/16th to 1/8th teaspoon per pound for melt & pour soaps. For cold process, add 1 teaspoon of oxide to 1 tablespoon of a carrier oil like Sweet Almond or Olive Oil and mix well using a mini mixer. For more information on oxides in soap, check out this blog post.
To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used ½ teaspoon of colorant (about 0.15 oz before dispersing) in 1 pound of soap.

I used this product in my cp soap and bath bombs and the smell was horrible!! A waste of my product! I will not use this product anymore.
My first time using this color and I love it
Love the color, but the color transfered to the wash cloth. I used the amount from one of Anne-Marie's book, I will try use less on the next try.
I bought this for CP soap.. I figured I would try it in my bath bombs. The color was beautiful BUT as soon as I added the color wiithin 10 seconds the smell was PUTRID!! My entire house smelled like sewage!! It had me gagging!!! I opened every window and the smell still lingered for hours.. BLAH!!! Wish I would have seen the previous warnings before I decided to try it...
Another reviewer on here stated the smell was horrible. She was right! Omgoodness it smelled like a broken sewer line absolutely horrefic. I seriously can't stress enough how incredibly bad the smell was, and it lingered all day!!! This is the only pigment that I have ever had this happen with. Now as for the color, the color is stunning and this works beautifully in MP ( no worries no bad smell) very versatile being able to make light to deep peackock blues. Love it for MP
