    Ingredients & Info

    📁 SDS

    INCI: Baphicacanthus Cusia (Nees) Bremek Powder

    Ideal for:
    • Soap
    • Resin
    • Crafts
    • Wax Melts

    Soap Use Notes

    • Use rate in cold & hot process soaps: 1 teaspoon 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. ~

    Indigo can be incorporated into soap in many different ways:

    • Add the powder directly to soap. This will result in a grayish-blue color.
    • Add indigo to hot lye water and let it sit, then add it to soap. This will be darker blue.
    • Oil infusion. Add the indigo powder to oils and apply low heat (i.e. crock pot). Let the indigo infuse into the oils for several hours and then add to soap. You may want to strain the oils to ensure you don't get any powder bits in your soaps.

    We suggest trying all three methods to see which works best for you!

    Very concentrate color

    Just a pinch goes loooong way of vibrat color.

    love this color

    I love this Indigo powder, you get better color when you add it to your lye water. Works well in cp soap.

    Nice natural dark blue

    Used 1 tsp PPO added directly to the soap, resulting in a dark blue/gray color. I like it a lot. Will be trying an ombré soon with it as well.

    Very Pretty But...

    The outer edges of my soap discolored to a greyish/pink color. I have no idea what happened but it actually works with the pretty blue I got from the indigo in my CP soap. I'm curious to try again and see if I get the same results.

    I love how it works with other colors!

    Beautiful natural blue

    I have been using Nurture's Indigo Blue for a few years now. It creates a very nice natural blue colour. I like to use it in combination with madder root powder to make beautiful Blue and Maroon swirls of natural colour. The result looks very bohemian!

    Only once did I have it morph to a strange green, but I was using patchouli and I suspect the Fragrance Oil was the culprit.

    T.B. (Eugene, US)

    I love this Indigo powder. I recently used this in one of my CP soaps and it came out a nice navy grayish blue. I heated the Indigo powder in oil for a couple of hours then used it on the top of my CP soap and in a swirl. The color came out very nice. For a darker gray it may be best to heat longer.
