This pigment range has replaced our Brites NG.
The colour is strong and vibrant, but when used with Titanium Dioxide, or in an opaque based soap the colour is a pastel apricot shade. Use at full strength for an “in your face Neon”!
If you have not used this new colour previously we recommend a small trial to ensure the concentration and shade meets your requirements.
