Green Chrome Oxide: "Moss Green", this isn't a bright "in your face" green -- rather, it's mindful of a native forest. An excellent match for our Southern Pine and other masculine fragrance. 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 tablespoons of a carrier oil like Sweet Almond or Olive Oil and mix well using a mini mixer.
To create the color in the sample of cold process soap above, we used 1/4th teaspoon of colorant in 1 pound of soap. For more information on oxides in soap, check out this blog post.

I love using this color in a variety of cold process soaps. I always disperse it in a bit of water and find that helps to avoid any clumps. I am currently working on using my SoapMaker 3 software and am unsure of how to know the specific gravity of this product and other powder colorants. Do you know what is might be?
This is a nice and easy to use earth to e green. Mine didn't turn out nearly the same color as the example on here but it's not bad either. My only complaint is that I was shorted on the amount I received, when I got it I thought it seemed a bit empty, so I weighed it and the whole thing did t even weigh an ounce. Wish I would have got what I paid for.
I've found a little goes a long way. I didn't have any staining issues when mixing it.
I used this product twice...first time was wonderful...second time, YIKES...not a BB error, it was my error...Let me ask you this...I made a mistake...When mixing the oxide, I went by the total amount of soap batter instead of the HALF that I used it in...therefore I used one tsp in about 1 1/2-2 pounds of the soap...will that be ok or will it stain? Please help.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Monique! I'm so glad you like our Green Chrome Oxide Pigment! Though your second batch where you used 1 tsp in 1 1/2-2 pounds soap should be just fine. It may lather green slightly but it should not stain. If you're worried you can also always grate or cut it up and put it into another batch of soap.
This is a powerful pigment, and my soap came out the same color as advertised. One word of caution, I used a little reusable container to mix the pigment, and it stained it like crazy. It also stained my sink, my scrub brush, and my dish washer. It sticks to absolutely everything. I haven't had this problem with any other pigments so far. I'll use it again, but only with disposable containers.
