Soap Colorants in Cold Process SoapSoap Colorants in Cold Process Soap

Have you ever noticed, that when a chef serves up a beautiful plate of food to, it will most likely has some colorful food displayed on a plain white plate. Don’t you instantly want it, regardless if you are truly hungry or not?  This is because you always “eat with your eyes first”. When you are setting out to make masterpieces of soap for your customers, you want them drawn to the colors of your soap. Soap colorants in cold process soap (or in any type of soap you make) can add another dimension to your creation. It’s the first thing everybody will see.

There are so many options out there when it comes time to color your soap. You have soap dyes, in liquid or powder form. Micas are also a colorant choice. Some micas will add sparkle and color at the same time.  Then, there is the option of natural colors using herbal powders. If you are trying to achieve a more simple, rustic look to your soaps, herbal powders are a wonderful way to go, however, natural soap colorants are a topic for another day. 

Typically, you will have a recipe that can be any basic, everyday cold process soap or it can even be your own favorite cold process soap recipe. The next step is to decide your fragrance. This will always depend on your customers, a season, holiday or even a personal choice.  So, next comes the artistic part. The coloring and designing part. How will you design it? Will it be a solid color? Swirls of multiple colors? Plain, uncolored soap is an open canvas to create with. I always believe the colors depend on the fragrance. But, I also have coworkers that love having the option to create soap to match the room, using any fragrance you would like.  Take for example, Melissa, she has red soap to match one of her bathrooms scented with blueberry fragrance oil.  What colors do you see when you smell your scent of choice? 

No matter what type of colorant you chose, you have the opportunity to create something that will be almost to beautiful to use. They can be true works of art.

Soap Colorants in Cold Process Soap: About Natures Garden’s FUN Soap Colorants

Before we get started talking about how to use our Fun Soap colorants though, let’s get the details about what they are like. Fun Soaps are actually colored pigments that are dispersed in vegetable glycerin. There are absolutely no chemical preservatives added.  All of our FUN Soap Colorants are vegan.  Using liquid soap pigments which have already been dispersed in vegetable glycerin helps to prevent pigments from clumping in your soap. In addition, it’s already mixed for you, saving you time and frustration. All of these soap colorants work well in melt and pour soap as well as cold process soap.  They are non-bleeding, perform well in high pH environments, and do they not morph during the saponification process. These Fun Soap colorants can also be used in any bath or body product.

For example, say you have chosen Nature’s Garden Awapuhi Seaberry fragrance oil. With fresh sea air and notes of water lilies, I picture blues and greens. With a few drops of Fun Soap colorants like ultramarine blue, teal and neon green soap colorants, you can achieve some pretty swirls of blue, green, and teal! You can create this fun Awapuhi Seaberry Cold Process Soap Recipe!  How beautiful your soaps can be! Fun Soap Colorants will make it stand out first and when your customer gets a smell, they will be hooked.

If you would rather go bright and vibrant, another choice of an artistic creation could be a cold process soap using our Cannabis Flower fragrance oil.  Use some of our Neon FUN colors such as, blue, pink, green, and yellow and you will take what could have been a plain, white bar of soap and turn it into a psychedelic palette of colors! Just like our Hippies & Hemp Cold Process Soap!

 

Soap Colorants in Cold Process Soap: Oxide ColorsSoap Colorants in Cold Process Soap: Oxide FUN Soap Colors

Now, not all soaps have to be bright and colorful. When you are looking at a plate of brownies or chocolate cake, what comes to mind is yummy, sweet and chocolaty, right? When your products are geared more towards men then you will want something a little more masculine, if you will. The oxide colorants are going to give you deeper, richer colors. These are also perfect if you are in need more “fall-like” colors. Frankincense and Myrrh soap uses a few of the Fun Soap oxide colors, in yellow, brown and orange. These colorants are perfect for creating the colors one would associate with the fragrance oil,  Frankincense and Myrrh. A rich woodsy scent of myrrh, vanilla with a touch of floral to it.

You are only limited by your imagination with Nature’s Garden FUN Soap colorants! Our Creative Team has been hard at work testing all 21 vibrant soap colorants in cold process soap. Each color was tested with 1 drop, 3 drops, 6 drops, 12 drops and 18 drops. That’s a total of 105 different shades of colors! That only leaves an unlimited amount of shades you can explore and create!  Below we will talk about these amazing colorants and give you ideas on how to achieve any color you could possibly want under the Fun Soap rainbow!

Soap Colorants in Cold Process Soap: Cold Process Soap Testing Recipe

We used a specific cold process soap recipe for testing purposes. The recipe we used is as follows:

Soap Colorants in Cold Process Soap: The Water Phase

Soap Colorants in Cold Process Soap: How Our Testing Was Performed

  • We soaped at 100 degrees.
  • When the soap batter reached emulsification, we separated it.
  • We separated each batch of soap into 5 bowls.
  • Each bowl contained 116 grams of soap batter.
  • We added various amounts of colorants to each bowl. We gave each testing bowl a specific number of drops. 1 drop, 3 drops, 6 drops, 12 drops and finally 18 drops. However, there were two exceptions to the number of drops we used, these differences are noted in FUN Soap Colorant testing videos.

We have also included a video of our soap colorant testing in cp soap on our YouTube Channel! So, watch and see how the whole process was done. There are other fun videos on our Nature’s Garden YouTube Channel you can take a look at too!

Tea Tree Soap

tea tree soapTea Tree Soap

Hey all you crafty people out there, we’re bringing you a brand new unique free soap recipe, and it is actually made with amazing tea tree essential oil! Tea Tree Soap! This wonderful soap is made with actual tea tree essential oil, and is sure to delight you and all of your friends and family!  Deborah makes this soap for her family to help dry skin during the winter months.  So she wanted me to share this recipe with all of you!  This soap has a beautiful teal and white swirl to it, which is actually achieved very easily! The swirl is brought on by using cosmetic clay. The clay actually works as a barrier between the different soap mixtures, allowing them to swirl around each other!

 

Ingredients:

Hemp Oil Melt and Pour Soap

Kaolin Clay Powder

Tea Tree Australian Essential Oil

Teal FUN Soap Colorant

Basic Oval Mold Market Mold

Vegetable Glycerin

Rubbing Alcohol

Glass Mixing Bowls

Mixing Spoons

Scale

 

Total Weights for White Layer:

288 grams of Hemp Oil Melt and Pour Soap

7 grams of Tea Tree Australian Essential Oil

7 grams of Kaolin Clay Powder

15 grams of Vegetable Glycerin

 

Total Weights for Teal Layer:

288 grams of Hemp Oil Melt and Pour Soap

7 grams of Tea Tree Australian Essential Oil

10 drops of Teal FUN Soap Colorant

 

 

Directions:

Start by weighing out the amounts of soap for each layer in two separate bowls. (Using glass bowls is better for insulation, it helps the soap to stay melted longer once it has been melted down.) Then go ahead and measure out the amount of Kaolin Clay Powder in a bowl. Once you have measured out your clay, add 15 grams of vegetable glycerin and mix them together thoroughly until they become a paste.

Next, go ahead and begin to melt down your soap. When the soap is partially melted, pour the clay and vegetable glycerin paste into one bowl of soap. Then add 10 drops of Teal FUN Soap Colorant into the second bowl of soap. Mix each bowl and then continue to melt them. You want to do these steps when the soaps are only partially melted because once it is fully melted, it sets up very fast. The only thing you should have to do when they are completely melted is adding the tea tree oil.

Once your soaps are completely melted down, add 7 grams of Tea Tree Australian Essential to one bowl and 7 grams to the second bowl. Mix thoroughly. You’ll want to work quickly at this point as the soap tends to set up very fast.

Using your Basic Oval Mold Market Mold, quickly but carefully pour each bowl into the mold at the same time so as to achieve your swirl effect. You will have some soap left over after you have filled the mold. This is so that you will have enough time to fill the molds because the soap sets up very fast.
