    Product description

    Turn bath time into an intergalactic adventure with our Glow in the Dark Pigment! Add a pinch of this magical powder to any mica or pigment to create a soap that will glow with galactic power, or use it alone to create a masterpiece that shines! Now you can bathe in the stars...without leaving your tub!

    Nurture Soap's glow in the dark pigment is manufactured in Ohio, and it is the only legal phosphorescent pigment for cosmetics that meets the purity specifications outlined by US FDA (Consult 21 CFR73.2295). There are no other glow powders available that meet the FDA purity specifications. It is only available in one color, and because of Nurture Soap's rigorous purity requirements, it is the only one we offer.

    Our glow powder charges quickly by daylight, incandescent, fluorescent or UV light and produces a bright green emission color without an external light source.  The length of the “afterglow” depends on pigment concentration, surface area and charging time.  This glow powder can be used up to 10% by weight of the final product provided it is not for regular or “daily use.” A good example would be Halloween make up (or soap)!

    Our glow pigment is a very dense powder that adds glow to soaps. On it's own it's an off white and will not add color. It can be added to micas or neon pigments to add glow. It needs to be exposed to light in order to glow in the dark. Place under bright lights then take your soap to a dark room and watch it glow!

    I made these soaps last year using white melt and pour. I also used colored micas & F/O. They glow like crazy even when I just used my cell phone light to activate the glow! These sold like crazy last year & I am in the process of making these again. I did have a little trouble with the glow in the dark pigment settling to the bottom. Over all over pleased.

    It works!

    Play around with the amount but it does glow.

    This totally elevated my soap game. The glow-in-the-dark actually works. When I come out at night to where my soaps are stored, they are glowing in the dark!

    Works amazing in CP.

    Holy glow

    What a beautiful pigment! Really glows in melt & pour! Didn’t use enough in my CP soap so I wasn’t able to get the effect I desired! But would definitely buy again!

    Good but quite dim

    I did a test batch of CP soap using the 1 tsp PPO as recommended.
    1 tsp is 1/4 of an ounce, so if you buy the 1 oz jar, you will only have enough glow in the dark powder for a 4 Pound of oil batch.

    I made a sample with no added colour or fragrance and samples with added fragrance and color.

    The Sample with NO added fragrance or color glows well.

    The sample with added fragrance and mica color barely glows at all.

    If you are looking to make glow in the dark soap with no added color or fragrance this would work well. (such as for embeds)

    If you wanted to make glow in the dark soap with colors and fragrance, it does not work well. It is not worth the added expense of the Glow in the dark powder to the soap, considering it has such a small effect.

    Helen's Handmade Soap (Westminster, US)
    Good but was very dim

    I did a test run using this Gow in the dark powder. I used it at a rate of 1 tsp PPO as recomended. I tried it alone, and with added mica colors, and fragrance.

    The soap glows well when used at the recommended usage rate with no additional micas or fragrance. When Micas and fragrance were added the soap did glow but it was barely visible.

    If you are thinking of getting this, I recommend only using it alone and not will added colors. Considering the cost of the product + shipping (now that free shipping no longer realistically available) it is not worth the added cost if you want to add glow to coloured soap.

    I bought this on a whim, and I'll be back for more! Used approx. 1tsp per lb. of soap batter and was happy with the results. It shows up better in the lighter colors but not so much in the darker ones. May just add a little more to the darker colors next time to see if that works better.

    M. (Waukee, US)
    Fun is an understatement

    I was skeptical using this in CPS with multiple colors (neons) but I was pleasantly surprised. It was not as bright in the darker colors but perfect with the lighter ones. Maybe I'll try adding extra to certain colors next time to see if that makes a difference. Love it though and will definitely purchase again!
