We recently had a Bramble Berry customer that had a bit of trouble with the Red Velvet LabColor not turning out to be the color she wanted. We made her proprietary recipe and came out with a really bright, snappy color. I’m wondering if it’s a usage rate issue? There’s always a possibility of operator error on our part with a mislabeled bottle too.
The soap on the right used 6 drops of undiluted Red Velvet LabColor in 2 pounds of soap. It also went through a full gel phase which helps the brightness of the color really stick out.
Here’s an example of the Wineberry Mist LabColor with a high and a low usage rate. Notice the difference in shade and hue just by varying the usage rate a bit. The fragrance that we used accelerated trace a lot so it was tricky to smoosh this one fully down in the mold. The darker color used 276 grams of diluted Wineberry Mist in 6.5 lbs of soap.
