Usage: Added at trace in soap – add 1/2 teaspoon annatto seed powder per pound of oils to traced soap. Mix well.
Results: Annatto is easily mixed in at trace. I ended up with a highly speckled look and soap that was slightly scratchy. I would recommend infusing in oil for best results. At tested usage rate you will get a slightly tinted lather. Can also be used in salts and bath bombs
Botanical Name - Bixa orellana Colour - Yellow to orange Used in - MP, CP, BB, BS, HP
Natural colorants do not dissolve entirely as do pigments and little particles remain. When you add oil to your bath bomb formula the natural colorant remains in the oil and that is the ring you may get in your bath tub. It also depends on how much color is used. If you stick to pastel shades this will decrease the color intensity and leave less of a ring. You can also add 1 to 3 tsp per 2 cup batch of turkey red castor oil (water based) to avoid the ring. Regardless the ring will just wipe off and not stain with the natural colors.
