    Beautiful and vibrant color. Works well in my lavender soaps for colorant. My order was shipped and arrived in a very timely fashion.

    Writing my second review

    Posted by POST WARRIOR on 29th Aug 2017

    Seems like my first review was not posted even though Bulk Apothecary say they do not monitor the reviews.

    Do not use this in bath bombs as it will react to the citric acid and let off a bad smell.

    If you want to use this in soap and want to avoid the speck aftermath, I figured to mix this with hot water and then add to soap works best. No specks left in the soap as the pigment powder dissolves completely in the water. I can't figure out why no one has come up with this method and I used my initiative and it worked.

    I like this for my bath bombs

    Posted by Marcie on 25th Feb 2017

    The product is nice and works really well for my lavender bath bombs. I just bought some other colors I like it that much.

    This is the first time I used this and am pleased with the results. As others have said a little does go a long way. Looking forward to ordering again.

    Not for bath bombs

    Posted by Riannon Gephart on 7th Sep 2016

    I bought cobalt blue and this lavender to make bath bombs not knowing about ultramarine colors. I won't make that stinky mistake again! Unless you are pranking someone with rotten egg smell, do not use this color for bath fizzies

    Beautiful, true color

    I use this oxide in my lavender goat milk soap to create a beautiful warm purple color. I've used other lavender oxides in the past, and this one requires far less to create a rich color, and it mixes more smoothly, dissolving almost instantly so that I don't have to worry about mixing in lumps while I trace. I also find that it adds a nice smooth texture to the soap, like a bentonite or kaolin clay might. I find this makes a nice formulation for shaving, and I get lots of great feedback about the soap now that I've switched to this oxide.

    Love it, but it's an Ultramarine

    Posted by Nicole L on 2nd Aug 2016

    I really love this color! It's beautiful in my hand scrubs and the color came out lovely in bath bombs, but be advised this is an ultramarine, which can cause a sulfur smell in bath bombs. My lavender bath bombs aren't strong enough scent wise to mask this so I've had to switch to something else to color them. I'll continue to purchase this and other oxides though since I use them in other aspects of my business. Hoping I can blend my own purple from the blue, which might not have as strong of a sulfur smell, and the oxide red. I believe it's the citric acid in bath bombs that causes the bad smell to be enhanced, which is why it's totally fine in my sugar scrubs and soap projects. I love that a little goes such a long way!

    A great lavender color

    Posted by Barbara on 23rd May 2016

    A little goes a long way. I used this product in a batch of swirled lavender soap and funnel poured patchouli soap this weekend. Both turned out beautifully with the color I expected. For each batch I mixed a small scoop of the colorant with a teaspoon of oil. When I added my soap, I used a mini-mixer to help break up any specks.
