"Incredibly pigmented! Use with care!"
COMMENTS:  This is a super pigmented product and you need to be very careful with how much you use. If you are using it in bath fizzies do NOT put it in with the dry mix, you'll just create a tub staining mess. Mix it beforehand with either an oil or polysorbate 80. I'd suggest starting with a very small amount, like 1/2 a teaspoon. You can work your way up from there with subsequent tests. If you mess up and it stains your tub or sink, you can scrub it off with some bathroom cleanser and a Magic Eraser.

"Stains but gives a nice color"
COMMENTS:  It stained my bowls and is annoying to get off my sinks. Thankfully, dawn dish soap works wonders...still couldn't save my bowl. However! it gives a good color and I haven't tried it with polysorbte 80. I believe adding that will make it easier to work with and will give the maker confidence in selling products using this colorant. I was afraid to without polysorbate 80.

"Pitch Black"
COMMENTS:  I used this mica in some MP soap I was making that I didn't want to put charcoal in (which is my usual black colorant) and it works like a DREAM! Just a tiny amount turned 3 lbs of clear MP base into pitch black, opaque color that I used for some Halloween molds. I even poured it on top of white and you can't see through it. Amazing and so easy to work with!

"Best black for soap"
COMMENTS:  I used to use activated charcoal to achieve black color in cold process soap. I don't gel my soap so I always had to use a lot to get the final soap to look black. Too much activated charcoal can be very drying to the skin. Since then I switched to black oxide. This oxide is very potent, a little goes a long way.

"Versatile"
COMMENTS:  This product works wonderfully. Go from light grey to very black. Can even add it to other colors for a darkening effect. Do not make the mistake of mixing it intially in washable containers, use diposable for first mix then add to traced soap. Almost impossible to get spoons and bowls clean. Once added to soap easily cleaned. It's that raw form that is tenacious.

COMMENTS:  A little bit of this goes a very long way, be careful or it will turn lather and wash cloths black. I used this a couple times for accent swirls in my cp soap, I still have about half left of my sample packet. It works great, but remember it is very potent!

"Deep dark black"
COMMENTS:  This product was super easy and amazing to work with. It produced the deepest richest black from any powder type product I have worked with. It also did not bleed when I poured clear over it :) I love the fact that I don;t have to use a lot to get the color that I want. I bought the small jar and I think it will last me a very long time.

"Good for "Pencil Line" in CP Soap"
COMMENTS:  I use this for a very thin "pencil line" between layers in my cp soap. I only have to sprinkle it lightly. For black soap, it only takes a little bit to get a pure black color. I mix it with a little bit of my carrier oils or glycerin before adding it to my soap batter to get it to blend in smoothly.

"I make a mess with this!"
COMMENTS:  After reading all the great reviews, I guess it's just me. I've used this with glycerin a few times but I just make a mess. It gets on everything no matter how careful I try to be. When I go to wash off my mold, tools, etc., it gets all over the sink, the dishes, my hands, everything. It does produce a nice bold black color. It does mix easily and well with liquid glycerin, so I do give it a 4 star rating. I should just stick to the color bars. Much easier to use for me.

"Nice true black"
COMMENTS:  This made a nice true black for stripes in my soap. I didn't experience any bleeding although I'm still watching it. Overall very easy to use, good color, I would recommend. One thing I did do was to transfer the powder out of the bag and into small containers. The bag made it difficult to use. For the small amount left in the bag I simply added a small amount of oil to the bag, sealed the bag and massaged it to get every last bit. I then used the oil in my soap.

"Containers make using easy."
COMMENTS:  I used this oxide as a swirl in a 2 lb loaf scented with the CC Moonlight Path FO (ordered from WSP). The end result of the combo was awesome. The oxide colored the soap like a breeze. I mix the oxide in oil @ 10 minutes before adding soap at light trace then used this to swirl into my entire loaf colored white with the water based TD (ordered from WSP). Everyone loves this soap. A little goes a long way depening on what end result color you're looking for. I wanted black so I used a tad bit more. Easy to use and easy to dispense containers work for me.

"Great black"
COMMENTS:  Pretty easy to get a true black with this oxide without ending up with grey lather. You don't have to use that much and it premixes well with glycerin so that you can have it ready to add when your making a batch of soap. The price is great for the amount that you get. 2 oz will last through quite a few batches.

"Great blacks and greys..."
COMMENTS:  I've gotten a nice deep black and also shades of grey using this pigment. If you want a true black, you will have to use more of course, but stay away from lighter base oils if you do or you will have a harder time achieving a rich black color without ending up with colored bubbles or lather. When I don't use activated charcoal powder for my black, this is what I grab!
