Wonder what I use for color in soap? Depending upon the type of soap and what I want to achieve I may use micas, pigments, natural colorants such as olive leaf powder (pictured top next to aqua mica) or lab colors (top photo).
Before I design the formula for the soap I picture what I want to look like. Do I want it simple, frilly, glittery, etc? Even if I want to keep it simple it's gotta have color. Most of the time the color is spot on or sometimes, as with everything in art, it comes out not as expected. Cutting into a fresh batch of soap is like opening a gift on Christmas. You never know what it's going to look like until it's done.
My favorite soap supplier is Brambleberry located just north of Seattle, WA. I love the variety of products, customer service and that they are a "local" Pacific North West company. (Well, Washington are our neighbors, right?) All products are skin safe and a detailed description is listed on their website about each one. I know exactly what I'm putting in my products. www.brambleberry.com
