"Great orange colorant"
COMMENTS:  I use this in my bath bombs and I love the orange color. However, I'm having trouble with the powder fully dissolving. So, I get orange specs in the bath bombs as well as the orange color. I put them in melted mango butter but it still doesn't dissolve that well.

"Beautiful infused color"
COMMENTS:  I've had the most success with this by infusing it into olive oil. It is a beautiful orange color. Added directly to soap, it is gritty and can be a pleasant exfoliator, but it tends to clump up if not dispersed well. It gives much less color added directly.

"Annatto Seed Powder"
COMMENTS:  Thank you WSP for another great product for my natural skincare line. I used this in my MP soap and it gave such a beautiful yellow orange color to the soap. You can use a little for the color yellow or more for a deep rich orange color. Love the fact that it is a natural colorant. :)

"Pleasantly Surprised"
COMMENTS:  I wasn't sure what to expect when I started using this. It was my first try using it and I really like the results. I used it in cold process with half the bar using this mixed with apricot kernel oil and the other half of the bar I used just calendula petals. The two look really great next to each other and give and great look to a more "natural" bar.

"Beautiful pumpkin orange cololr"
COMMENTS:  I used this in cold process pumpkin soap. When I unmolded my soap, it was the perfect dark orange color I was hoping for but, over the next day or two, it turned a dark brown. My hubby said it looked like pumpkin pie after it was baked so it works but it was a bit disappointing after seeing the initial color. I will have to play with the amount I use - I will definitely still use it again!

"Bright Buttery Yellow"
COMMENTS:  I used this in powder form in some CP. There are a few specks here and there because I did not infuse it first, but that is ok in my design. I love the buttery creamy yellow I got. I wanted to avoid going orange on this particular recipe. But I would like to go orange on the next one, so I will use a bit more. A little goes a very long way.

" A little goes a long way"
COMMENTS:  This powder makes a beautiful color...just be careful how much you use. The directions say 1tsp-1tbsp for 1 lb of oil...I added about 0.5 tbsp for about 1.5 lbs of soap and it came out a very pumpkin orange...so much to the point the lather has a bit of orange to it. It also leaves dark flecks...which is actually a nice natural exfoliant and visually appealing. I will use it again, just to a much less degree...which isn't bad because it is more economical that way. I would probably go with about 0.5 tsp in 1.5 lbs. to start with. I have to say I am very impressed with all of the natural powders WSP has. I LOVED all of the vitamins and pigments and look at all of their benefits. It is very antioxidant properties they have. I just want to try them all NOW! If you haven't done so yet, go to the natural impressive! Thank you WSP for giving such wonderful options!!! :)

"CC Annatto Seed Powder"
COMMENTS:  This is one of the powders I recently invested in for natural colorants in my bath fizzies. The richness of the color it brought to my Pumpkin scented bombs WAS the bomb. Add to that the skin and health benefits AND the fact that it only takes a little (1 tsp per one of my batches)and a 2oz bag will last FOREVER makes it easily affordable to provide great quality and you've got a Triple Win!

COMMENTS:  I used this in CPS for a natural colorant. I initially added 1 tsp to 1 tbsp Almond oil and whisked in a small glass jar to have ready for future use. When I used them this weekend, I was very happy to see the vibrant colors of nature and how well they held up through the gel phase. I am so glad I chose the natural route, these are wonderful.

"Great natural orange color!"
COMMENTS:  I use this in CP soap for a natural orange color. It produces a very vibrant orange! I infuse the olive oil with the powder at a rate of 2tsp/cup of oil for 2 hours in crockpot, strain with cheesecloth and then use the infused oil at a rate of 15% of total oils in the soap. Too much will turn your skin and the lather orange, so 15% is a good amount. Who needs synthetic colorants when you can go all natural with powders like this!
