We had a blast playing with pinks, purples, greens, blues and oranges in the LabColor range and thought you might want to see what we came up with (since colorant usage rate is a common question in customer service). We used the Bramble Berry LabColors in 4 ounces of unscented cold process soap using the 12 bar square silicone mold. Check out the usage rates below to get these exact same colors. For dilution rate, we did large size of Labcolor in 8 ounces of *distilled* water. Can you tell where the gel phase is in the soaps below? I sure can! It’s the brighter middle parts of the soaps.
I hope this helps you when you’re planning your batches and trying to get a great, happy, vibrant color.
