Do you know that:
If you are just starting to make soaps, the easiest solution to obtain a colored mass is to use kitchen dyes, e.g .:
- bell pepper (orange)
- ginger (beige)
- turmeric (orange, the color will fade during maturing, which indicates lowering ph)
- cinnamon (initially the mass will be light brown, the color will intensify during aging)
- cocoa (initially the mass will be light brown, the color will intensify during aging)
- coffee (brown, additionally creates a natural peeling)
How to add kitchen dyes to soap? Put the powder directly into the soap mass.
Do not overdo it with excessive amounts of kitchen dyes as they can stain the sink (e.g. cocoa) or irritate the skin (e.g. cinnamon).
Another proposition of dyes are pearl pigments (so-called mica), i.e. shiny powdered minerals. Personally, I really like dyeing the soaps with mikami. Their biggest advantage is the fact that they give the soaps a nice, stable color. A whole range of colors is available.
How to add mica to soap? Dilute the mica in olive oil and then add it in this form to the soap mixture. Thanks to this, you will eliminate the risk of lumps, which affect the aesthetics of the soap.
Matt pigments are oxides of e.g. chromium, iron or ultramarine. The mixture of these pigments allows you to create an unlimited range of colors.
How to add matte pigments to soap? First mix them with a little water. Otherwise there is a risk that the soap will have unsightly spots.
Cosmetic clay is a wealth of minerals that have a beneficial effect on the skin. They not only enrich the caring properties of soaps, but also act as a natural dye. Their disadvantage is the fact that the color of the soap colored with clays fades over time.
How to add clay to soap? Mix them first with a little water and then add to the soap mass.
Adding powdered dyes directly to the soap mass may cause lumps. Therefore, before adding dyes to the mass, dilute them in water or oil.
Macerates added to the soap also affect the color. The final color will depend on the strength of the macerate, its amount in the recipe and the fats used in the soap. Here are some examples of how to tint soap with plants:
- indigo - for a denim color
- alkanna barwierska - from pale lilac to dark purple
- arnica seeds - from pale yellow to orange
The type of fat used in the recipe determines what color of the soap will ultimately be obtained. If you use essential fats like olive oil, shea butter, coconut oil or rice oil without any additives, you will get a beige cube. If you add red palm oil you get orange soap and pumpkin oil turns the mass brown.
Fruit juices, pulp - how to tint the soap?
Another way to color the soap is to add vegetables or fruit, e.g. in the form of juices, to the soap. In this case, remember to reduce the water. This means that if the recipe includes 300 grams of water, then 150 grams of water will be used to make the lye, and the remaining 150 grams will be juice. Add juice directly to the soap mass.
Tomato juice gives the soap a beautiful orange color and it remains unchanged throughout the aging period. However, other juices may turn brown during this period.
Essential oils can color soap mass, e.g. cinnamon essential oil, light beige. Fragrances with a sweet note also tend to color the soaps brown / beige. It happens that this color comes out only during the aging period (darkening mass).
Gelling the soap allows you to get more intense colors. To increase the likelihood of the soap going into the gel phase, wrap the mold with the poured soap mass in a blanket. Additionally, remember that small molds are not conducive to gelling. So use wooden, thick molds.
