New colorants offer a variety of new design possibilities. We’ve been busy testing micas, and decided on the Buttercup Mica, Magenta Mica, Raspberry Mica and Blue Slushy Mica. All four colorants work wonderfully in cold process soap without morphing or fading. I recently used the Magenta Mica in the Watermelon Cold Process Tutorial for a reddish-pink hue. Which colorant is your favorite?
If you’re looking for a fruity scent for summer projects, the new Pineapple Papaya Fragrance Oil will be a new favorite. Slightly sweeter than Pineapple Cilantro Fragrance Oil, the new Pineapple Papaya features more melon notes. It smells just like a tropical vacation!

The new Apple Sage Fragrance Oil is another fruity scent that’s sure to please. Great for summer, it will be suitable for fall as well. It features notes of juicy apples, coconut water and an earthy base. It also behaves wonderfully in cold process soap with no discoloration. In the Apple & Sage Salt Scrub DIY, Apple Sage Fragrance Oil is used with various green micas for a layered look.
If you’re not a fan of sweet and fruity, the new Green Smoothie Fragrance Oil may be right up your alley. It’s a crisp green scent with notes of fresh cut kale and delicate florals. It really does smell like healthy green smoothies! It accelerates quickly in cold process soap and has no discoloration. It would be the prefect fragrance for gardeners soap.

In addition to colorants and fragrances, we have been busy testing exfoliants. We have four new types of sea salt: Black Sea Salt -Fine, Black Sea Salt – Coarse, Kauai Red Sea Salt – Fine, Kauai Red Sea Salt – Coarse. Both types of salt are from the Pacific Ocean. The Black Sea Salt (fine and coarse) is coated with activated charcoal from Hawaiian coconuts. The Kauai Red Sea Salt (fine and coarse) is coated with Kauaian red alaea clay.
To celebrate summer and Shark Week, we brought in two types of mini aquatic toys: Toy Fish and Toy Sharks. The sharks are so popular they are already sold out, but more are coming soon! They were used in the Shark Week Melt & Pour Tutorial along with white and blue soap to create the look of waves. I can’t wait to make a project with the little Toy Fish!
For cold process soapers, the new Organic Cocoa Butter Cubes are sure to be a new favorite. The cube shape is easy to handle and melt. This cocoa butter has a strong, chocolate-like aroma. In addition to soap, it is wonderful in lip products, balms and more. I can’t wait for you to get your hands on it! In addition, we introduced Ultra Refined Lanolin. Lanolin is a wax-like butter produced from sheep wool. It’s commonly used in balms, lip products and cold process soap.
