Indigo Powder

Size: 1 lb bag
Sale price$79.10


Natural indigo powder creates a denim blue color in cold process soaps. Our indigo powder has a very high natural dye concentration of 6.2% and is superior to most others available. A higher dye content results in a deeper blue.

INCI: Baphicacanthus Cusia (Nees) Bremek Powder

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

• 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!

I try to stick to natural colorants for my soaps and had wished for a long time to try indigo for blues. It's beautiful. I haven't stop playing with it.
