This color additive leans more towards a true purple color, it’s a great shade of purple. Any shade, from soft lavender to the very richest purple can be achieved simply by controlling the amount put in soap. In CP soap, the color will brighten as the soap neutralizes. In HP soap, it is true to color before pouring. We recommend 1/4 teaspoon per 3 pounds of soap. All color is shipped in powder form. To use, simply add water to the bottle when ready. 1 bottle will hydrate to 2 ounces of highly concentrated color.
