Using Dyes and Pigments In Your Soap

How to use Dyes & Pigments in soap

There are several different things to use pigments and dyes in. The different oils you choose to use in cold process soap can alter the color you will end up with in your finished soap. All of our colors are dry powder form, so you will need to mix them with a carrier (liquid glycerin, water, or oil) before adding them at trace. We recommend using the liquid glycerin with all pigments for a better consistency. Please note that all micas are used at the same ratio as a pigment. We recommend using a 1.25 cc scoop of pigment color per pound of soap or .15 cc scoop of dye color per pound of soap. 
The scoops and colorants can be found in our online store:
