Simple Secrets: Using Soap Color Bars
By Wholesale Supplies Plus Tuesday, October 25, 2016
Goal:
Soap Color Bars are color-concentrated soap bars that add appeal to finished melt and pour soaps. Many prefer using soap color bars as they are less messy than liquid colors or powdered colors which inevitably seem to leak out of bottles or become airborne and cling to hands. Soap color bars vibrantly and evenly color melt and pour soaps when used properly. Read further for three techniques for using these soap coloring products.

Melt Together: 
One method to using soap color bars is to add part of the color to your melt and pour soap base right before melting. First, chop part of the color bar into smaller pieces and then add it to your cubed melt and pour soap base. Melt both the color and the melt and pour soap base together in a microwave or double boiler, and then mix thoroughly until the color is evenly distributed. We love this method because it is the quickest and involves less dishes!

Melt Soap + Add Color:
Another method is to add the color to your melted soap base. Again, chop part of the color bar into smaller pieces and this time add it to your hot melted soap. The heat of the soap will slowly melt the color, and as you mix the color will disperse. We love this method with new recipes as it lets us add a little color at a time until we achieve the perfect shade!

Melt Color + Add to Melted Soap:
The final method is to melt the soap base and color in two separate containers, and then combine. Melt both color and soap base separately and then slowly add the color to the soap. This method allows you to play with colors without having to wait for the solid color pieces to melt in the soap.
