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 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
This is a gorgeous color, and a staple in my cold process. I added it to a batch of bath bombs and wow! The smell is horrific! Like, Santa Monica pier at low tide bad. I made six more test batches with different scents or no scent at all before submitting this review. It's the colorant that's making the bombs stink. Stick to cold process with this one!
I purched this color and I tried to use it with bath fizzy with out premixing it with liquids, and it stained the tub. Can it be used in bath fizzles if premixed in liqueds without staining the tub?
I used this in a CP soap using a great recipe from one of Anne-Marie's books. The soap is delightful but using the 1 tsp to 1 TBS carrier oil, the soap came out with a deep blue color and unfortunately this transfers to a wash cloth. It does not stain skin (no blue men here) and works fine with a shower poof. I think I need to use less the next time I make this recipe. All the more reason to do test batches right?
