    can this be used in leave-on products such as eyeshadow and if so, what is the best base to use it in? example zinc, rice flour, etc.

    Hi Kate, I am not aware of it being used in mineral makeup. You might want to try our sapphire gem mica: https://www.soapandmore.com/sapphire-gem-mica.html?category_id=57 We also carry a matte texture base for making mineral makeup: https://www.soapandmore.com/Matte-Texture-Base-for-Eyes-Face.html?category_id=177.

    Tried using Indigo powder in CP soap after trace and it didn't dissolve. Does this need water (and not oil) to dissolve?
    Should this be added to the water and sodium hydroxide?
    very disappointed in the results - ;-(

    Most powder colorants natural or not are better suited to dissolving in water and added at trace.

    What's the INCI for this?

    Indigo Naturalis is used to describe various types of indigo as explained: "A well-known group of Old World plants are the source for the blue powder, the Chinese call qing dai (青黛), including Baphicacavthus cusia, Polygonum tinctorium, Isatis indigotica and Indigofera tinctoria."

    I do not believe there is an INCI name as it is a plant however the Botanical Name: Baphicacanthus Cusia (Nees) Bremek Powder

    Will indigo leave a ring in the bath tub if it is used to colour bath salt and bath bombs?

    Natural colorants do not dissolve 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.
