Nettle leaf powder is effective for treating dry skin. It is often used as a colorant in sugar/body scrubs or in soap. It can be used directly in soap or infused in oil first to get a lovely green.
Color stayed perfect and was super to work with! Love it!
Fantastic to work with. Gorgeous color for layer or swirls. Just a slight abrasiveness which is fantastic in garden soaps, but not as rough as shredded loofah can be. Love it!
I love natural herbs and botanicals for colorants and additives for our products - This Nettle is wonderful.
This produced a lovely green in my cp soap added to oils. Color seems to be holding well so far after 3 weeks in light. Does not have a horrible smell like I have when using spirulina.
This is great when you want little pops of color that flat green clay doesn't necessarily give. I have used this is shampoo and bar soap and it colors and works wonderfully!
