Purple monstar

I used this purple in my cold process soap. It did leave a couple specks :-/ It initially looked grey but I had to add more pigment until the purple came about and stayed. It would be great if I could have used the suggested amount but I had to used quite a bit more to get the color and make it stay. The end result was beautiful.

I love it

I was reluctant to purchase it at first because some of the reviews, but it performed very well. I did NOT disperse it because I wanted a very thick trace so I put the dry powder into the batter and stick blended to a very thick trace. It is a very rich almost purple color with no specks in it.

Not impressed with the ultramarines

Again, this leaves specks in my CP soap, even when blending first with sunflower oil.

Has the Potential to Go Gray

This is a gorgeous color but it can go gray in cold process soap. My soap initially turned out a beautiful shade of lavender but went gray 6-8 weeks later. I'm not giving up on it just yet though. I want to try it again with the suggested addition of Ultramarine Blue next time.


I tried this color for the first time today, normally I mix my own lavender using pink and blue but thought I'd save some time by buying this. I'm so disappointed - my lavender soap smells great but has an awful grey color! I'm really hoping something magical happens tonight while it sits in the mold. :(

Hi Jennifer! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this color. We found the Ultramarine Violet Oxide Pigments makes a beautiful light purple in cold process soap as seen in the CP sample above and in Classic CP Swirl Soap on Soap Queen TV. If you're getting a gray color it sounds like you just need to add more of the colorant! I will email you personally to help troubleshoot!
