I Recommend This Product!
COMMENTS:  This turmeric powder has always comes through so beautifully in my 6 oz. soap bars. You don't even need a lot, just 1 - 2 teaspoons of it is potent & more than enough in your soap base. The color just vibrantly shines through in the clear melt and pour soap base. I also infused honey powder and jojoba oil when making the bars and always take a bath with it and omg with the turmeric powder, honey powder & jojoba oil combined together in the soap my skin always feels super soft, glowing and refresh!! Our customers also love it and we get so many reviews on how our turmeric & honey bar is helping their dark spots, acne, etc. I'm just overall happy! Thank you WSP!!!

"Turmeric Powder "
COMMENTS:  I purchased this for bath bombs to help produce a natural orange color. My end product came out more of a bright lemon color. It was a beautiful color, but not really what I was going for for an orange and grapefruit scented bath bomb. I may have used too much since it produced a very strong color and it was no where near the orange color in the description photo. I did notice when I sprayed my dry bath bomb ingredients with witch hazel that it immediately turned a bright almost neon orange color when it became wet but then mixed in just fine with no issues and turning yellow again when completely mixed together. This dispersed nicely in the tub and turned the water bright yellow. It didn’t leave a ring around the tub and didn’t stain my skin or tub at all. I would definitely use this again but not as strong and probably for a different scented bath bomb.

"I put this stuff on everything!!!"
COMMENTS:  I love this stuff-- that is why I put it on everything! Be careful not to use too much because you may walk around with an orange/yellow body tan and that is not sexy at all. I am not suggesting that you eat>digest but I take a teaspoon each day for inflammation. WSP will suggest that you do not eat and that is understandable. I have noticed that my back pain is less and I made soap/face mask for my daughter to help her with facial scars due to inflammation and let me tell ya, within 3 weeks; she has noticed a big difference. I do claim certain cures because what may work for others may not work for all-- this is only my opinion. Do your own homework on this wonderful product. Thank you for reading!! Much success to you all!! Tammie

"Love the color it produces."
COMMENTS:  I was looking for a more natural product to color my soaps. This is perfect as I can adjust the color. Very little is a soft yellow and the more you add the darker yellow or orange it gets. Mixes well with soap base and EO's. I love how my lemongrass soap turned out, its so pretty.

"good natural color"
COMMENTS:  Used in a white base and it changes from bright yellow to a darker brown over time. Glad I tested it out first so I could explain to customers! Also worked really well mixed with tomato powder in the hemp oil base to make a deep orange color.

"Tumeric a proven anti inflammatory"
COMMENTS:  Tumeric is a wonderful addition to soap when a yellow-orange color is needed. It not only colors the soap, but it also adds the wonderful anti inflammatory properties that Tumeric is famous for. People take Tumeric to prevent cancer and I am sure that using it externally is also somewhat protective.
