Neon Pigment, Carnival Orange

$7.70

SKU: NEO7

NEW

Carnival Orange Neon Powder is an oil dispersible colourant. This colourant doesn't bleed in soap and can be used in both Melt and Pour Soap and Cold Process Soap - it must be moistened before adding to the soap.

The pigment can be a full on Neon Colour, even in Cold Process Soap, BUT this does depend on HOW MUCH YOU ADD! You are in control! You can have subtle vibrant, but pastel to a full on fluro in-your-face colour!

Instructions for Use:

For Melt and Pour Soap - Unless using in large commercial sized batches we recommend you use the pre-dispersed Liquid Neons or Colour Blocks as it is much easier if you are a beginner or part time soaper.  We have tested this colourant in Melt and Pour Soap, and it can leave a speck or two.  For Melt and Pour Soap it is best mixed in Glycerine PF with thorough hand blending or using a mini mixer.

For Cold Process Soap - This colourant is best moistened with oil. We recommend starting out with the following:

Add 2 teaspoons of pigment to 25ml of a carrier oil like Sweet Almond Oil or Rice Bran Oil or Fractionated Coconut Oil - stir to moisten the powder and then mix well using a coffee frother (or mini mixer) – add 2 teaspoons of this mixture per 500g of traced soap for the mid tone shade in the graphic.  See a How To Hydrate Neons video in the recipe formuary HERE.

Product Suitability:

Melt & Pour Soap - Yes - but difficult to use, we recommend using Colour Blocks or the liquid versions
Cold Processed Soap – Yes - mix in oil before adding to soap
Cosmetics including Eye area - No
Lip Products - No
Scrubs and anhydrous products - Yes
Emulsions (Lotions) - Yes
Bath Bombs - Yes, but they need Polysorbate 80 to help the colour disperse and to rinse cleanly away.
Candles and Tarts – Not tested
These colourants are: Non bleeding, oil dispersible colours

For more information on pigments in soap, check out THIS SQ blog post.

Our Test Results:   We mix 30 minutes in advance, and there were no speckles or lumps visible.  For a deeper shade, use more colourant, for a vibrant pastel tone use less.

pH sensitivity: Stable in high pH products (CP Soap) - as per the graphic, just add a little at a time to ensure you achieve the shade or tone you want.
Colour Fading: This colour is not prone to fading.
Colour Bleeding (Migration): This colour does not bleed or migrate
