"Am I correct in assuming, that your stained glass colors, purchased in small amounts other than bulk, are not to be used for resale? They have to be "batch certified", which you only do for bulk orders?"

"The labels on these colors state for external use only, which to my knowledge means they are not to be used in bath bombs or products that come into contact with mucus membranes but there are bath bomb recipes containing these dyes. Is this solely because they aren't batch certified? Can you please clarify?"

"Powerful Pigment!"
COMMENTS:  WSP wasn't kidding when they called this concentrated. A little bit really goes a long way. Just don't forget to dissolve in water ;) Also, for me personally I ended up getting more of a strawberry color. Still very beautiful, just not that crisp apple red I was wanting. Btw the color will not stain skin immediately so don't worry if you get some on you :) Happy soaping!

"Bath Bombs"
COMMENTS:  I bought three Stained Glass pigments in the primary colors. It takes a lot more of the red powder to get a good 'apple red' color than it does of any of the others, so keep that in mind. It does not incorporate easily (while making purple bombs; the blue mixed easily but the red speckled), and when they dissolve in water it sends out little random shooters of red that swirl and linger on top of the water before dissolving (my sister graciously described it as "looking like when you get a nosebleed in the bath"), whereas the blue dissolved in instantly. I think that problem may be solved by mixing the pigment into the liquids before incorporating, or using some sort of foaming agent. I'm honestly torn between four and three stars for this product because I do love these pigments and their water solubility over micas / lakes is amazing (and really important to me). I've only encountered a few problems, but those problems are sort of big so I cut my losses and went for three. But I still think this is a great product, even if you do have to work with it!

"Great color"
COMMENTS:  When using this in bath bombs, dilute it in a water based liquid first! I used 1/8 tsp of the powder color with 1 tbs witch hazel and it produced a light red in my bomb! (1 ml of the color mixture was used for 1 bomb) No mixing was necessary, the powder incorporated into the witch hazel almost immediately. It wasn't as dark of a red as I had hoped but I'm worried it will stain the tub/skin if I reduce the liquid amount haha. This will last me a long time, a little really does go a long way!

"Love the colour!"
COMMENTS:  A little hit and miss in finding out how to use this product. I initially mixed the colourants in my oils and found that it did not mix well (left dots and flecks of red in my soap). Not what I was going for, but in soaping sometimes it turns out better. It mixes very well in water and produces and even red colour. One of my favourite reds!

"Exactly what I was looking for!"
COMMENTS:  I needed a BB colorant that would tint the water & not the tub & this was perfect. I especially love using it in combination with goats milk powder bc you get a pretty opaque pink colored water. This is very concentrated so don't over use.....great price :)

"Used in lotion and sugar scrub"
COMMENTS:  A little tiny bit of this powder went a long way to color my almond rose body whip. I also used it to color my sugar scrub, but I haven't tested that flavor yet. I noticed that the body whip color will sit on my nails for a little while, but fades without any rinsing. Not sure if it's better suited for soap? It hasn't dyed my skin or anything, and the color is really lovely. I received a jar of it as a sample with my last order. Would definitely try it in other products!

"Mix Well!!"
COMMENTS:  If you attempt to use this in CP soap make sure you pre-mix in oils. I pre-mixed and still ended up with red dots in my soap. Thankfully it was in a cranberry soap and it just looked like bits of cranberry. I have noticed that their stained glass colors are extremely hard to mix. The yellow does the same thing.

"Great Value "
COMMENTS:  A little goes a long way, but be careful not to add too much. Just because you don't see the color; once you add the moisture to your recipe, it's quite possible you'll realized you ruined the products due to too much coloring. This is one of those things you'll just have to believe is there even if you can't immediately see it.
