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.
Please Note: This product has a slight smell that can be described as "sulpheric". We have not noticed this scent to come though in the finished product.
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.
