Today, I’m going to show you the Yellow Lip Balm Color in Melt & Pour Soap and Cold Process Soap.

Melt & Pour Soap Notes:
I melted some Transparent Melt & Pour soap in a large glass beaker and then added about 8 drops from the Professional size of the Yellow Lip Balm Color to the melted soap. Again, I used an immersion blender at the very beginning of the test. The color never changed and remained looking like a pitcher of orange juice.

Cold Process Soap Notes:
I added 8 drops of the Yellow Lip Balm Color to the oils once they were melted and used an immersion blender to make sure there were no particles of color floating in the oils. At this point, the oils were a yellow orange color, like orange juice, and then I added the lye mixture and used the immersion blender to mix. The color didn’t change at all as I blended the soap or even after I poured it into the mold. Once I cut the soap, I noticed that the soap was a smooth bright yellow color.

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
