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.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Adriene! I'm sorry this color did not behave as you were expecting. We love the bright blue shade the color creates, though it does have a sulphuric smell because it is a natural ultramarine. We found this smell is easily covered by fragrance in soap, though it does come through more clearly in a product like bath bombs. We also do not normally recommend using our pigments in bath bombs because they tend to streak and transfer in the tub. For great selection of bath bomb colorants, check out our La Bombs, which are specifically designed for fizzies!
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
