Filtered of harmful impurities, this colourant can be used to enhance the quality of other colours in many applications such as bath bombs, body butter and cosmetics. It has demonstrated to be firm in soaps and will not adjust the shape or colour in cold process or melt-and-pour soaps. It also provides uniform colouring with an unswerving shade batch to batch.
One of its disadvantages though is that it tends to clump and you will need to be cautious to de-clump first before adding to your recipe. To de-clump beforehand, use a hand mixer to pre-mix your pigment in with a deodorised fixed oil, such as olive oil, before adding to your soap. This will help diffuse and break up any clumps.
The coloured oil can then be added to the soap batter at trace when making cold process soap.
The 15g option is packaged in a clear vial while larger options come packed in resealable ziplock standup pouches.
Warning: There may be hazardous reaction of the product with metals, such as aluminium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, lithium, sodium etc, at high temperatures.
