Bath Bomb Notes
To use in bath bombs or other water applications, you must use polysorbate 80 (emulsifier) at a rate of 1-2% of your total batch weight. This should disperse the color evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of mica around the bathtub.
I think I am going to use this for my spring/summer palette thank you for the perfect yellow
It is a lovely, bright, shimmery butter yellow color. Makes my soap look like liquid sunshine!
I have made bath bombs with this and love the result. Can't wait to make CP soap with it.
This is a very pretty cheerful yellow.
I love this color. However, the first time I used it I was going to make a lemon/citrus scented soap. I hadn't read the warning that said, "Read before you panic!! I had a slight freak out but since I hadn't added the fragrance oil yet, I changed it to peach bellini. Looked great as peach. The next morning I came back and it was yellow. I have learned my lesson and love it now. This is my go to yellow.
