Ruby Cold Process Soap Test 2

I was excited to test the Ruby Oil Soluble Lip Color. I have been dreaming of a strong true red that isn’t a dye so you can make swirls with it and it will not bleed. I really thought the Ruby color would be it. I am sad to say I must continue my search for a true, non-bleeding red. Although on the bright side, a lovely orange color is created. It has just a hint more red that what the coral has. Come join me in the kitchen to watch this amazing color change.

    You could certainly try. I don’t know how red it will be but it would be nice to find out.
    I hope this helps.
