Description

  • We discovered a small recipe tweak that makes Trial by Fire even brighter with no chance of migration! Batches 330666 (beginning 12/16/19) and after contain the formulation change. The ingredients deck and use rate did not change.
  • 09/01/2020: We reformulated to make the use rate less while still achieving a true red in cold process soaps. Trial by Fire is now a bit darker in the jar than it was previously. The ingredients deck did not change.
  • Use rate in cold & hot process soaps: 1.5 - 2 teaspoons per pound of oils.
  • Use rate in melt & pour soaps: .5 teaspoons per pound of base.

~ More or less can be added to achieve your desired color. These usage rates are recommended for no colored lather. ~

It is very important to start with a white base. Soaping oils that are yellow or green will affect any color. Do not add Titanium Dioxide to whiten the base, as this will make the red more pastel.

Do not use more than 2 teaspoons per pound! You don't need to. This color is a rich red at 1.5 - 2 tsp. per pound of oils (a great use rate for red). More will make a more brick colored red than using it at the recommended use rate. Using Trial by Fire at 1 tsp. per pound will make a very rich rose color that is quite beautiful as well! 1.5 - 2 tsp. per pound of oils is the perfect use rate in our testing.

Trial by Fire is a mica-based pigment. It will need to be blended into your soap well for best results. You may portion off a tablespoon (or so) of your soap making oils and disperse the color before adding it to your soap.

When used at 2 tsp. per pound of oils in CP soap, this red would transfer to a washcloth but once rinsed, come right off the cloth. You may want to test a small amount for staining if you are concerned that this color may stain washcloths.

All the hype about this red being one of the best is true! I’m able to get a really nice red with some of nurtures other colors but sometimes they turn out more pink. This one produces a perfect red every single time!

All I can manage to get is a brick red. I've tried cp and m&p. All I ever get is a brick red.

If you're getting a brick red color then you are using too much. It does look brick if you go overboard on it so try using a bit less! ;)
