I am glad to find this forum! Can't figure out what is the best product to color my soaps. Any suggestions?

What type of soap do you make - CP. HP or M&P? Micas work great to color soap, but some micas will morph in CP/HP due to the high pH.

What is your target market? Natural colorants? Micas? Batch certified Lake dyes?

Thank you Linda. I am making cp. I tried the little drops of color they sell it at Michaels. Didn't work great.

The liquid colorants from Michael's are only for MP soap. They are not meant for CP soap.
